Data Collection Proposal
“Statistics can be made to prove anything?even the truth.”
The collection of data can be the deciding factor as to whether research is considered valid or not. In this Discussion, you will consider the different ways that data can be collected. You will also determine the best way to analyze data that will answer your research question.
To prepare for this Discussion:
?Consider your research topic, the results of your literature review, and your proposed research design.
By Day 4, post a comprehensive response to the following:
?How will you collect information for your research (qualitative, quantitative, or mixed methods)? Explain your answer. (See Chapters 11 or 12 of your textbook.)
?What statistical methods will be used to analyze the data? Why? (See Chapters 11 or 12 of your textbook.)
?What sample size will you use? Why? (See Chapter 7 of your textbook.)
