The paper began with the introduction followed by explanation on experimental and Scientific methods. Causality and experimentation, dependent and independent variables, reliability and validity were also extensively discussed. Experimental manipulation and control, basic experimental design and evaluation of experimental research were adequately elaborated. Finally, conclusion and recommendation were provided. It was recommended that psychological researchers should always understand the uniqueness of experimental methods as it goes beyond problem description towards providing explanation of how that comes about.
