Functional relationships obtained in a specific situation may or may not generalize  to other situations or populations. Measure behavior in other groups or other  situations.  Example: The effectiveness of social attention on reading the instruction  manuals which accompany VCRs was tested with a variety of people to see  if social attention affects behaviors of noncollege students.  A technological advance in one discipline may have an enormous impact on  the production of knowledge in another discipline. New tools may reveal  the answer to long standing questions. If you have a particular research  problem already chosen and you can bring new technology to bear on it -  do it.  Example: Using a TV camera with a telescopic lens visitors at a zoo were  monitored while near instruction signs. The effectiveness of other people  asking questions on increasing reading was assessed.
