This chapter builds on the previous chapter by elaborating from theories of causal knowledge presented earlier to practical considerations for the design, execution, and analysis of randomized experiments and randomized controlled trials in music education research. The straightforward statistical analysis of the two-group experimental designs is explained through the t test. The analysis of variance technique is explained for the analysis of experimental and quasi-experimental data involving more than two groups. The chapter closes with a discussion of the analysis of data arising from experiments where additional data, beyond group membership and the score on an outcome measure, is known about the participants (i.e., analysis of covariance).

Keywords:   experimental data, randomized controlled trial, randomized experiment, t test, analysis of variance, Type I error, Type II error, effect size, analysis of covariance
