I managed to get myself confused on this one. So I am planning to conduct an experiment within an organization. I want to explore effects of recognition on people's motivation. Recognition will be in a form of personalised recognition letter. Experimental group will receive the letter, control group won't.
I wanted to measure levels of intrinsic and extrinsic motivation in both groups prior to the intervention, and then post-intervention.
- my IVs: intervention/no intervention; time period 1/time period 2
- my DV: motivation
- is it independent groups design and I will need factorial ANOVA? Or time doesn't count as a variable?
- or maybe I don't need to measure motivation levels before at all?
