For this assignment, again, it is beneficial that you keep the topic you would like to research for the capstone proposal in mind. The capstone will require a literature review for your proposal, of which you may use articles obtained during this course.
Select a peer-reviewed, non-experimental research study that exemplifies a correlational and quasi-experimental design (use keywords method, results, and discussion in your Boolean search).
- Compare the research design of the two studies chosen.
- Were the research designs appropriate to their hypothesis (the goal of the research or research question)? Why or why not?
- Discuss the limitations of drawing conclusions from a non-experimental study.
- Did the study have a random sample? Were there other problems that were noticed?
