2 Assignment from the Readings Chapter 5 2. “Define the distinctions between primary, secondary, and tertiary sources in a secondary search”[ CITATION Coo14 \l 1033 ]. The definition of primary sources in a secondary search “are initial works or raw facts without analysis or proclamations that signifies an official opinion or point”[ CITATION Coo14 \l 1033 ]. As an example of a primary source is sport talk shows that conducts interviews with sport celebrities. Primary and secondary sources has a distinction. Primary sources are where the information began, whereas secondary sources “are interpretations of primary data”[ CITATION Coo14 \l 1033 ]. Primary information that has been place in a media sources like “books, magazines, or most newscasts”[ CITATION Coo14 \l 1033 ]. “The interpretations of secondary sources may be considered as tertiary sources represented as indexes, bibliographies and other finding aids”[ CITATION Coo14 \l 1033 ]. Internet search engines (dogpile.com, yahoo.com) are considered tertiary sources. In gathering information for research, tertiary sources may be considered as primary sources because the researcher may not have the same access to the primary information and data. Data gathered closer to the date of research could result as a primary source if it is not deviated. 3. “What problems of secondary data quality must researchers face? How can they deal with them”[ CITATION Coo14 \l 1033 ]?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
