Why did you choose this method?What type of data collection methods will you use? What advantages/disadvantages do the methods present? Remember, justify why you chose the methods you did know the advantages and disadvantages.Based on the study you designed, what outcomes/findings do you think you will find (think in terms of your proposed hypothesis, IV and DV)?
