- A researcher was studying initial interactions between people. While two students were supposedly waiting for an experiment to begin, the researcher covertly videotaped their actions and conversation. Afterward, the researcher told the students about the video recording and gave them the opportunity to have the tape erased.
Complete the following for the study you selected (rather than reproduce the scenario in your response, indicate your study selection with a number):
- Explain the ethical issues and how the study may have violated principles of ethical behavior.
- Propose an alternative research design from the assigned Learning Resources that could possibly remedy the identified issues, (e.g., naturalistic observation, simulation study), and explain in detail how the new design would be set up and carried out.
