Social Science Inquiry Model Anthropology, Sociology, and Psychology all follow a process of INQUIRY (an investigation that follows a formal procedure). This process can lead to answers for questions about people and the world around us. There are five steps to the Social Science Inquiry Model: 1) Identify a problem or question Does having access to a car during the daytime negatively affect students’ marks? 2) Develop a HYPOTHESIS – a statement or belief that can be scientifically tested out; a hypothesis is neither right nor wrong, but it can be proven right or wrong Having access to a car during the daytime negatively affects students’ marks. 3) Gather data via research methods (case studies, sample surveys, experiments, interviews, observation) What is the best method for conducting this research? 4) Analyze the data (graph, statistical analysis, etc) How would you analyze the data collected? 5) Draw conclusions: Is the hypothesis supported or not? Should the hypothesis be accepted, rejected or revised?

    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.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
