The previous chapters provided an overview of different types of studies, ranging from naturalist observations to controlled experiments, and how these fit in the software development life cycle. The essential components of a study, such as the hypothesis, the participants and random assignment, were discussed. In addition, the different types of variables were introduced with an illustration of how a design equation incorporates them.
