Assessment 2 research problems and research questions




The research methods course instructor asked the class to demonstrate their knowledge by compiling the sections from each of the weeks, one through six, and discussing the main idea(s) for each section. They had to address each section using the information from the course text and course resources. They were also asked to explore the topic of first generation college students and resilience at a four-year university. Some sections required that learners consider both methodologies, quantitative and qualitative. Some learners had their assignments returned because some or all of their sections contained errors.
