c. What other qualitative approaches would be useful to your study? These could include content analysis, case studies, or any other of the approaches in your week’s material. Explain the value of this approach to your research objective.

3. If you were going to conduct surveys, how would a survey contribute useful data for your course research project?

a. What is the population for your survey and what is the corresponding sample size you would need for a 95% confidence level in the survey results?

b. Provide a short discussion of how you would carry out such a survey. What process must you use to conduct any research on human research subjects?

4. Interviews or Focus Groups:

a. What special considerations must you consider when conducting interviews or focus groups?

b. Who would you want in your focus groups (what types of people as far as backgrounds, experience, education, etc.)?
