hi so I really need this answer like right away!! so I'm doing an essay on the stanford prison experiment and we're doing ethical issues and methodological success and I'm doing the fact that not everything was disclosed. I need to know if the fact that the 'prisoners' were arrested would effect their behaviour toward the experiment. so basically if it would be how a real criminal would react kinda thing if that makes sense, i really just need someone to write this for me lol
sorry for the bad grammer and stuff but im rushing it lol xx

Ethically it was bad in almost every sense. They signed consent forms to have some of their human rights suspended and they were debriefed at the end and came together as a group to reconcile their differences. Those are the only positives but you can put a negative spin on those.

For methodological issues think generalisability, reliability, validity, and the type of data and how it was collected.

Well obviously getting arrested does make you feel anxious. This experiment was highly unethical.

also can someone just check that this makes sense:

The first major ethical issue is at the start of the experiment, when the subjects were arrested, charged with armed robbery and burglary, searched and handcuffed. This had not been fully disclosed to the participants or had been selected to be prisoners. Another ethical issue was when they were strip searched without full consent, this is a complete violation of rights. Another violation was when the prisoners were deloused as this was stated to purposefully humiliate them.
