The ability to evaluate effects of factors on outcomes is increasingly important for studies that control some but not all of the factors. Although important advances have been made in methods of analysis for such partially controlled studies, work on designs has been limited. To help understand why, we review the main designs that have been used for such partially controlled studies. Based on the review, we give two complementary reasons that explain the limited work on such designs, and suggest a new direction in this area.
