My topic of interest is the effects of stereotypes on African Americans. Validity refers here to whether the experimental results are demonstrating what we think they are demonstrating. The first is internal validity, which assesses the degree to which results can be attributed to independent variables. The second is external validity, which evaluates how well the results generalize to situations beyond the specific conditions laid out in the experiment. (Malec & Newman, 2013).

The experimental study could consist of different employees of different ethnicities. These employees are given twenty different pictures that have four different cultures, ethnicities, or races. Each image has four different word choices to describe each person and four different words that describe the picture.

The difficulty of the validity of the experiment is if the response to the pictures is based on life experience or society’s opinion of African Americans.
