Experimental research helps you understand what occurs in the real world. Research is valuable because it enables you to study in a controlled environment. However, some real-life experiences cannot be replicated in the laboratory. Sometimes an interesting situation occurs, and researchers study it after the fact because they cannot create the same situation again. Under such circumstances, researchers look back at actual real-life occurrences and create theories based on what they discover. In this Application, you look back at a situation that already has occurred and determine how factors related to everyday decision making can be applied.
The assigned articles and videos review a real-life situation about a pilot who made the decisions necessary to land a plan on the Hudson River safely.
