week 3 discussion

Research has consistently found that the more parents and caregivers are directly involved in a child’s educational experience, the more positive the outcomes are for that child. Explain what makes this a correlation and not an experimental finding. What might account for this type of finding? Be sure to focus on the difference between correlation and experimentation. Why is correlational data so important in the field of child development?
Please focus on pages 25-31 of the text book in particular when forming your response to the discussion.
