Quasi-experimental studies are a type of quantitative research. Similar to experimental studies, they involve manipulation of the independent variable. However, they lack certain elements of a truly experimental design. Most commonly, they do not randomly assign participants to study groups. Also, they sometimes lack a control group (Schmidt & Brown, 2019, p. 177).
