Listen to a conversation between a student and her sociology professor.

请听一个学生和她的社会学教授之间的对话。
I’m glad you got my message and were able to make it, where are the other members of your group? Tom and Jane?
我很高兴你收到了我的信息并且能赶过来,不过你小组里的其他成员呢?Tom和Jane呢?
They are actually at the library, they have a biology lab assignment that’s due later this afternoon.
实际上他们在图书馆里,他们今天下午晚些时候有个生物课实验作业要交。
So I’m here to represent the whole group, but. .um...when we got your e-mail message about being worried about our research project,
所以我就代表整个小组过来了,但是......当我们收到你的电子邮件说对我们的研究项目有些担心的时候,
we were a little confused, we thought you were excited about our idea for the project.
我们有点疑惑不解,我们以为你对我们的项目设想很兴奋呢。
Well, I think it’s a great research topic, but when I looked closely at your plan for accomplishing the research,
我觉得它是个很棒的研究主题,但是当我仔细看你们完成研究的方案时,
I realized that your group was probably asking for some trouble.
我发现你们小组可能在自找麻烦。
What do you mean? I thought that, you know, by monitoring students studying in the library we could really get a good understanding of people’s study habits and stuff.
什么意思?我以为,通过监控学生在图书馆学习的样子,我们能真正得到一个对人们的学习习惯之类的良好的理解。
The thing is, I think you might have a problem because of the Hawthorne Effect.
是这样的,我觉得你们可能会出问题是因为Hawthorne效应。
The Hawthorne Effect?
Hawthorne效应?
The Hawthorne Effect is a technical term for when researchers...uh...more or less forget about a specific variable, the variable of the researchers themselves.
Hawthorne效应是一个技术术语,指的是研究人员多多少少忘记了一个具体的变量,那就是研究人员自己。
Now, the students in the library, they are going to know that you are observing them, right?
图书馆里的学生,他们会知道你们在观察他们,对吧?
So you have to consider the effect your very presence will have on the people you are observing.
所以你们必须考虑到你们的在场将会给你们要观察的人产生的影响。
But...so you think...I mean it’s not like our observations would be a secret.
但是......所以你觉得......我是说我们的观察不是个秘密。
The students would know exactly what we would be doing, I mean, we’d put up a sign right outside the library.
学生们会明确知道我们要做什么,因为我们会在图书馆外面张贴一个标志。
