3.3 Research procedure and methods This section documents the actual procedure and the methods employed in this research to collect, process, and analyse empirical evidence. Broadly, we detail the data and information collection instruments (Section 3.3.1), the target population and sampling of respondents (Section 3.3.2), the ethical considerations during the research process (Section 3.3.3), data and information collection process and storage (Section 3.3.4), data and information processing and analysis (Section 3.3.5) as well as the background description of the respondents who provided empirical evidence for this research study (Section 3.3.6). 3.3.1 Research data and information collection instrument(s) First, using at least three textbooks (including Bryman 2012 and others published after 2010), describe what a research data collection instrument is in seven sentences (140 words) ending with JUST MENTIONING the two types: observation schedule and interview schedule. Second, based on your literature review, commit to one or both types. Third, having committed, detail the type you have committed to in 10 sentences (200 words) using at least three textbooks (including Bryman 2012 and others published after 2010) ending with a sentence justifying why you have committed to such a type. Fourth, using at least three textbooks (including Bryman 2012 and others published after 2010), describe what a research data collection instrument structure is in seven sentences (140 words) 27

ending with JUST MENTIONING the three structures: unstructured, semi-structured, and fully structured. Fifty, based on your literature reviewed, commit to one of the structures. Sixth, having committed, detail the structure you have committed to in 10 sentences (1 words) using at least three textbooks (including Bryman 2012 and others published after 2010) ending with a sentence justifying why you have committed to such a structure. At this point, you will end up committing to one of the following combinations, (i) unstructured observation schedule, (ii) semi- structured observation schedule, (iii) fully structured observation schedule, (iv) unstructured interview schedule, (v) semi-structured interview schedule, and (vi) fully structured interview schedule (also called a questionnaire). Seventh, describe three journal articles (100 words for each article), reasonably similar to your research that have applied the combination you have elected to use. State (i.) the aim and objectives of their research, (ii) the reason(s) why they selected this design(s), (iii) the benefit they derived from applying this design or designs, and (iv) pointing out the benefit of this combination to your research. Eighth, based on your literature review, discuss where you will source the questions that you will include in the instrument. <400 Words> Finally, draft your research data collection instrument and place it in the appendix of the write-up.

    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.
