I feel that the authors may have some bias towards an anticipated outcome that they have in mind which may have modified their method of research (random sampling) which may not necessarily affect the outcome but may have an impact on it. Part III 1) Research Question: “To what extent can employees of XYZ company manage their time in such a way that they can have ample time for themselves in the future” 2) Hypothesis: Two groups of employees of similar positions can be given a task with different time deadlines (group 1 has 1 week and group 2 has 2 weeks) to complete the exact same task. At the end of this timeline, their works must be evaluated and its efficiency must be recorded and also the employees must fill out a survey at the end that consists of questions about how much time they have left/ took/ expected and had to work more on this task. 3) Population: employees of XYZ company Sample: Two groups of employees of same positions Independent Variables: Task Dependent Variables: Time Procedure as explained above. Therefore, by doing so, the efficiency of their work can be correlated to how much time they spent on it and how much time they have left after the task is completed.
