Los Angeles Pierce College Types of Research Method Discussion & Response.
I need help with a Social Science question. All explanations and answers will be used to help me learn.
In Chapter 3 and Module 4, we learn about various research methods used in sociology, such as survey, interview, participant-observation, ethnography, experiment, content analysis. After reviewing these research methods, as well as information about under what conditions we can generalize from our sample to the population, please consider the scenario below and answer the following two-part question:
There are about 18,000 students enrolled at Pierce this semester. Dr. Chavez is interested in finding out whether Pierce students think that the College is providing them with adequate student support services during the pandemic.
1. What sociological research method should Dr. Chavez use to conduct her study and how can she ensure that her research findings are automatically generalizable to all Pierce students?
In addition, please reply to at least one of our classmates’ posts with thoughtful feedback regarding their answer to these questions. Remember to keep your feedback factual and respectful of your fellow classmates.
