TOPIC
 We will be testing the effects of
alcohol on people. We will be
giving four people(2 males and
2 females) alcoholic margaritas
and another four people non-
alcoholic margaritas. We won’t
be telling them what they are
drinking. Then we’ll wait for
the effects to start and we will
make them ride a bike to test to
see who was effected most.
BLINDING
 The blinding is that
 some of the people
 being tested are given
 non-alcoholic drinks
 and the others are
 given alcoholic drinks.
 They aren’t told
 whether they are
 drinking the alcoholic
 or non-alcoholic drink.
BLOCKING



 There are two groups
 of 8 that consist of 4
 guys and 4 girls.
PLACEBO




The placebo would be
the non-alcoholic
drink.
PLACEBO EFFECT


 The placebo effect
 would be if the people
 that drank the non-
 alcoholic drink would
 have worse effects
 than the people that
 drank the alcohol.
CONFOUNDING


The people could have
different effects based
on their weight and
height. Also a big
factor would be their
tolerance to the
alcohol.
REPLICATION



 The replication would
 be 2 groups of 8 people
 a year for 2 years.
