When you are doing a test of a drug, the control group is the group that gets the placebo.

If you want to see if a drug will work the way that you want, you need to give it to two groups. One group that will get the drug and one that will not. But, they will get something that looks just like the same. The same color, size, etc.

The one that gets the placebo (fake) is called the control group.

The control group in an experiment is the group that nothing is done to. The reason why there is a control group in experiments is to compare it with the group that has been tested.

You use a control group to compare the results of the experimental group to. The control group has the "normal" results. After the experiment, you can tell if and what has changed from the control groups results

An experimental group is the opposite of the control group. The experimental group is the group that gets any the test and the control group is the group that does not get any special treatment. The only thing the control group gets is a placebo. ! :D

The experimental group experiences the test, while the control group does not.

A control refers to the "control group" in a scientific experiment. The control group is compared to the experimental group. For example, pretend you are experimenting to see if a drug works. Group A (The experimental group) is given the real drug, and Group B (The control group) is given a fake drug (placebo) to compare results.

In experimentation we need two kinds of group participation: experimental group and control group. The purpose of having control group is to have comparison between this group and the experimental group.Because control group receives no treatment unlike the other group which is under experimentation and receives treatment.

The control group is the one that is not manipulated in any way. Suppose we are testing the effect of studying on test scores. The group that did not study would be the control group. The group that did study would be the experimental group.

A control group is a group in an experiment that is under normal conditions. If one was testing out fertilizer, the control group would be a plant with just normal dirt.

Usually experimental versus control group are used in testing the affects of new medicines. Within the group being tested some will be in the experimental group and some in the control group, however the people are unaware of which group they are in. The scientists will give the experimental group the new medicine and the control group a placebo, something that has no affect. Then the affect of the new medicine will be revealed comparing the experimental group to the control group.

Experiments typically use control groups. One group of people are manipulated and measured, while the control group just stays as they are. The control group is measured against the manipulated group to see what changes.
