Evaluating Research Tools and Methods

If you are driving to work or the grocery store, there may be more than one mode of transportation that will lead you to your destination. You may be able to walk, take a bus, drive your car or ride your bicycle. Similarly, there is usually more than one method to gather data to answer your research question. You have to consider your research question and then select the methods and tools that will help you gather the most appropriate data. For this Shared Activity, you are challenged to critically evaluate research tools and methods used in examples of published research.

To prepare for this Shared Activity: Read the Unit 4 readings.
