Question 17

Use the following scenario to answer questions 24 and 25: A researcher was hired to conduct an evaluation on the effectiveness of an afterschool safety program. Twenty-five (25) students in Mr. Smith’s class were placed in the control group and 25 students from Ms. Doe’s class were placed in the experimental group for a total of 50 participants. The program began in August 2008 and data was collected from both groups at the start of the program. Data was again collected from both groups at the end of the program in May 2009. During spring break (March 2009), the school had a “School Safety Fair” that was not a part of the intervention and Oprah Winfrey did a remote broadcast from the school after Principal Parker spearheaded a bill in the Texas State Senate to implement afterschool safety programs for all of the elementary schools in the district in January 2009. The evaluator found no significant difference in those who completed the afterschool safety program (students from Ms. Doe’s class) and those who did not participate in the afterschool safety program (students from Mr. Smith’s class).

What possible threat of validity could have affected the outcomes of the evaluation?
