An education reseacher was interested in examining the effect of the teaching method and the effect of the particular teacher on students' scores on reading test. In study, there are four different teachers (Julina, Felix, Sona, and Helen) and three different teaching methods (method A, method B, method C). The number of students participating in the study was 258. Students are randomly assigned to a teaching method and teacher.

in a clincal trial, 780 participants suffering from high blood pressure were randomly assigned to one of three groups. Over a one month period, the first group recieved the experimental drug, the secound group recieved a placebo, and the third group no treatment. the diastolic pressure of each participatent was measured at the begining and end of the period and the change in blood pressure was recorded.
