Scenario 1: A researcher is interested in studying whether a company’s sick day policies can influence the extent to which employees will be honest about being sick before coming to work (that is, whether they will lie about being sick to avoid missing work). The researcher chooses three companies that require employees to log their temperature each day before coming into work, and they are not allowed to come in if they have a fever. She randomly assigns company A to adopt a sick policy in which employees are limited to 5 days off per year for fever-related illness, Company B to adopt a sick day policy in which they are given 10 days off for fever-related illness, and Company C to adopt a sick day policy in which they are given unlimited days off for fever-related illness. She then asks employees to anonymously report the number of days they lied about their temperature and came to work with a fever. She believes that employees in company C, where there are unlimited days off for fever-related illness, are more likely to honest about their health conditions before coming to work, than those who have stricter policies.

Scenario 5. Researchers are interested in examining whether the amount of “screen time” (time spent on tablets, phones, computers, or watching television) children get each day can influence their sleep quality. She randomly assigns a group of 8-year-olds to either have 1 hour of screen time, or 4 hours of screen time in one day. She then measures their sleep quality that night. She expects that the group with more screen time will have worse sleep quality than the group 1 hour of screen time.
