Conducting research in a natural setting has both advantages and limitations. Oneadvantage is that the research often has high ecological validity. State why this is so.

Have you attempted doing it yourself? Or are you just going for the easy option of asking people to answer the questions you don't want to?

field experiments (experiments carried out under natural conditions as opposed to artificial ones) have high ecological validity. as the experiment is done under real life conditions, findings can be applied to real life situations.

or something like that. you might want fo elaborate, but that question doesnt sound like its worth many marks.

but seriously op, this is pretty lazy of you ʕ´•ᴥ•`ʔ

A field experiment isn't really conducted in "natural conditions" because the situation (more specifically the independent variable) is still manipulated as in a laboratory experiment, it's just carried out in the participants' natural environment

Research carried out in a natural setting has high ecological validity because it gives a realistic representation of how people act on a day-to-day basis, the findings are not likely to be influenced by demand characteristics as the participants will be less consciously aware that they partaking in a study (theoretically) as they are in their natural environment in which they feel at ease.
