Yes. It depends on your research design and specific research questions. In quasi-experimental design, for example, other factors that may affect the outcomes can be controlled through random assignment.

Yes researchers should identify potential threats to the internal validity of the experiments and design them for minimizing or eliminating threats.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
