Example: One of the very worst things that could be done when designing a two-treatment, both-sexes study is to assign all of the males to Treatment 1 and all of the females to Treatment 2. If those who received Treatment 1 outperformed those who received Treatment 2, the researcher wouldn't know whether it was a treatment difference or a sex difference (or some combination of the two). The appropriate way to design such a study would be to randomly assign half of the males to Treatment 1 and the other half to Treatment 2, and to randomly assign half of the females to Treatment 1 and the other half to Treatment 2.
