Collecting Quantitative Data
[WLO: 3] [CLOs: 3, 4, 5]
This assignment mirrors the Week 3 assignment in which you discussed qualitative data collection tools. Now you have the opportunity to discuss quantitative data collection tools. Based on the topic you chose for the Week 1 assignment, you will explain what data collection tool(s) you might use for your possible quantitative study and explain why they are suitable. You will also start thinking about your potential participants. Keep in mind that you are practicing as you draft these components and that for the final assignment, which is your mini research proposal, you will have the opportunity to revise. During the final week, you will decide which methodological approach is most suitable for your topic and choose to collect either qualitative data or quantitative data.
Prior to beginning work on this assignment,
Consider reviewing Chapter 4 of the textbook.
Based on the topic you chose for the Week 1 assignment, include the following in your paper:
