One limitation is that it is unethical as Milgram told participants they could withdraw but then used prompts such as 'you must carry on' ' you have no choice' therefore removing the right to withdraw. However, Milgram did terminate the experiment if participants refused to carry on after the 4th prompt.

3 evaluation points:

1) ethical issues: decieved them into thinking it was a memory test, and shocks were real and that learner and teacher role was random so link that to psychological harm. 4 prods used but you could argue about the cost-benefit analysis and actually 84% were glad they took part

2)low internal validity: the tapes showed that most participants didnt think the shock was real so milgram didnt test what he intended to but counter this and say 70% thought it was real

3)support replication: game of death - basically participants were contestants for a pilot episode and asked to give electric shocks - 80% gave highest volt so it shows milgrams findings arent just a one off

hope that helps
