Test the Hypothesis
This is the part where the experimenter actually completes hands-on tests to either prove or disprove the hypothesis. To truly test the hypothesis, the experimenter must compare the results of the experimental group compared to a control group where the variables have not been changed. Example: For two weeks, a group of people eat a certain amount of chocolate each day and another group eats no chocolate.
