In this week’s Discussion and Application assignments, you will continue to work on your Final Project. In this Discussion, you will describe your sampling strategy for your chosen research proposal.
To prepare for this Discussion:
- Review Chapter 8 in the Frankfort-Nachmias and Nachmias book and the statistical power discussion on the Research Methods Knowledge Base website in this week’s Learning Resources.
- Consider the quantitative research plan you are developing for your Final Project and your research questions, hypotheses, variables, and analysis. What kind of power would be necessary for your research problem to be able to tell you what you would like to learn? What kind of sampling strategy would you recommend for your plan? What is your rationale for this choice?
With these thoughts in mind:
Post 3 to 4 pages of a description in which you describe inputs to compute sample size for your chosen research problem.
