The media in this country frequently report on or discuss data collected in informal surveys on the Internet or collected as answers to the “question of the hour” on certain cable news programs. Further, we are bombarded with data collected in surveys conducted by popular magazines such as Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Ladies Home Journal, etc.
Reflecting on the material you have covered related to data collection and research design during this module, consider such informal surveys and others like them, and critique them in a 3-page paper (about 750 words). The following questions may help you to structure your paper.
Identify specific principles of good scientific research.
Choose two or three surveys from the sources discussed above.
Identify the research problem being analyzed in each survey.
Examine the surveys, and indicate where they adhered to and departed from principles of good scientific research.
Consider this question: “Do people’s answers on such surveys necessarily reflect their behavior related to the issue at hand? Why or why not?”
What consequences do you perceive for the easy availability of information from such “research”?
Append the surveys you examined to your paper, if possible. If this is not possible, cite the source of each of your surveys at the end of your paper.
Cite any sources (including your surveys and assigned readings) according to APA citation guidelines.
