Big Ideas: Assumptions made during the design of an observational study limit the conclusions that can be made based on the results of the study. Building on students prior work with recognizing bias in the design of sample surveys, this lesson focuses on the design of an observational study and how the underlying assumptions made during the design phase limit the conclusions that can be drawn. Vocabulary: observational study, observer influence, confounding variable Special Materials: Document "Proposals to the Mayor" Document "Map of Downtown"
