Term:Experimental Condition
Definition (Myers):the condition of an experiment that exposes participants to the treatment, that is, to one version of the independent variable. (1)
Definition (alternative): To determine what effect an independent variable (IV) or treatment may have on some measure, it is necessary to present that IV to members of a group or condition. (2)
Contextual explanation: When creating an experiment, it is important to create it with appropriate experimental condition with independent variable and dependent variable. For example, the double-blind procedure creates an experimental condition in which people receive the treatment and a contrasting control condition without the treatment.
