Uncontrolled Variables in Standardized Psychiatric Patient Methodology
- The conclusions of Sarikoc, Ozcan, and Elcin (2017) had weaknesses.
- An uncontrolled variable (time spent in training) could account for the results.
- The difference in the control and experimental groups was not statistically significant.
- Acceptance of the hypothesis that video with interviews is more effective than videos alone is premature.
