Description of Statistical Sidebar: Control Groups and Experimental Groups: It Is All in the Numbers

In this issue of the journal, the article, “Virtual Environment for People Who Are Blind Integrated in an Orientation and Mobility Program,” by Orly Lahav, David W. Schloerb, and Mandayam A. Srinivasan, uses an experimental procedure that typically appears in the characteristics of what scientists think of as the most rigorous research: random assignment of participants to experimental and control groups. A control group is a group of participants who are similar in many ways to the group of participants who receive the experimental treatment, except that they do not receive the treatment. Members of a control group often receive some sort of equivalent treatment that will not impact the measures of the study.
