    Hey
    Does anyone know how to:

    evaluate findings in terms of bias, reliability and validity

    Say how you might collect more information to check the validity of your conclusions

    Identify any control variables that cannot bo controlled

      You need to be more specific. This is a very complex field, and varies from science to science. Specifically what problem are you considering? There is a lot of expertise on this forum, and if you carefully state your problem, someone will be able to help.

      Thank you for the reply,

      I am doing an experiment to see how the surface area of magnessium effects the time it takes for mg to dissolve in an acid (Independant variable: surface area of Mg, Dependant variable: time it takes for Mg to dissolve, Control variables: amount of Mg, amount of acid, temperature Mg is dissolved at, concentration of acid,)

      I have to write an evaluation about the experiment, but i don't know how i can evaluate findings in terms of bias and validity.

      And i don't really know any controll variables that can't be controlled in this experiment.
