    A generalization is a statement that has related the results of the experiment to a wider population. personally, i don't agree on this type of conclusion because people do react in a different way to the same situation in this case same experiment so why should we make a generalization of conclusion?

    generalisation is very similar to requirements for a hypothesis

    Psychology -> Research methods in psychology: appropriateness of conclusions and generalisations based on results obtained Appropriateness of conclusions and generalisations based on results obtained Conclusion A conclusion is a judgment about the meaning of the results in an experiment. It relates to the effect of the independent variable on the subjects involved. If a representative sample was selected, appropriate data collection methods were employed and conditions carefully controlled, then the study is most likely internally valid and appropriate conclusions can be drawn. If there is a confounding of variables in the experiment, then the conclusion may be questioned. Generalisation A generalisation is a statement that has related the results of the experiment to a wider population. The statement goes beyond the current experiment and generalises to other people or settings. A generalisation can only extend as far as the population that the sample in the study has represented. This is termed external validity. At times, generalisations of the results should not be made because of specific circumstances or subjects in the experiment.

    A conclusion is binding and generalization is open and non commital.

    Is generalization the application part of results obtained? or conclusion made?

    Generalization is a conclusion drawn from other experiments which is accepted by wider population .

    Consideration of appropiateness of conclusion taking into account all possible variables. Surely a wider study would increase the accuracy of any research.
