Research Methods and Data Collection
Research Methods Based on the lectures from this week, answer the following questions regarding your research. (lectures are in attachments when quoting them please use a space holder so i may go back in and cite them) For each, explain: Which methodology (which means approach or methods you will use to conduct your study) are you using? Why you chose this approach and why it is the most logical, given your research topic? Data Collection Discuss the pros and cons of using each method of data collection (e.g., self-reports, observational, or physiological measures). Provide one example of when each would be useful and explain your reasoning. In addition, select a peer reviewed article for each method of data collection (e.g. 3 total), summarize the articles and how each research method was used. Make sure that the example you gave for the second part of the assignment (e.g. about when the research method would be useful) is different from the examples used in the peer reviewed journal articles.
