I’m working on a psychology Research Paper and need support to help me study.
As you have learned during this class, a researcher can choose from many research methods. It is important to think of what is most needed from your study results when choosing what method to use as different research designs yield different data. The data obtained, in turn, influences the conclusions that can be made and the implications of study results for professionals working in the field.
In the Unit 9 Assignment, you will be given five scenarios to review and analyze. Using the Unit 9 Assignment Template, respond to the following for each:
- Of the study methods discussed in class (single case, observational, survey, quasi-experimental, or single factor), which method would be ideal for the researcher to use? Why?
- Based on the study method you identified, briefly describe how the researcher could structure their study.
- What are strengths and limitations to the use of this study method?
- Each scenario has a possible bias/error associated with it. Based on the bias/error listed for this scenario, how could this affect the study results, and how could a researcher work around this?
This Assignment assesses the following Course Outcomes:
