Sampling and Design

Write a 2-page paper addressing the sections below of the research proposal. Explain in detail the points under each topic.

  1. Begin your discussion by sharing your problem statement and research question.
  2. Next, discuss your sampling plan.

Sample Setting: Number and criteria for inclusion and description of place in which data will be collected. How will the sample be selected?

Sampling Strategy

  • What type of sampling method is used? Is it appropriate to the design?
  • Does the sample reflect the population as identified in the problem or purpose statement?
  • Is the sample size appropriate? Why or why not?
  • To what population may the findings be generalized? What are the limitations in generalizability?

3. Next, discuss your research design. 

  • What type of design will be used?  Type (e.g., Quasi-Experimental), description, and rationale for selection
  • Does the design seem to flow from the proposed research problem, theoretical framework, literature review, and hypothesis?
