prepare for this Discussion:
• Review the Campbell and Stanley
text, Experimental and Quasi-Experimental Designs for Research, as well
as the Discussion questions and responses from Week 1.
• Consider the focus of the research
you would like to propose as part of your final research proposal. Also
consider the designs listed in the Campbell and Stanley text and the feedback
you received in Week 1 from your instructor and classmates. Based on this
information, craft a research question for your Final Project.
• Think about which research design
from the Campbell and Stanley text you would choose to answer your research
• Review survey information from the
Nachmias & Frankfort-Nachmias text and from the Ahern article.
• Determine the appropriateness of
Internet and survey research in gathering the data for your topic.
these thoughts in mind:
a 3- to
4-paragraph description of your research question. Explain which research
design you will use to answer your question. Also address the appropriateness
of Internet and survey research to your design.
