2 information about how google was searched for

This preview shows page 8 - 10 out of 15 pages.

2) Information about how Google was searched. For example, if I couldn't find information about X saying "I searched Google for two hours and found nothing" is not an acceptable response. NOTE: The following should be included in your research path: 1) How did research start, 2) the types of sources looked for in the beginning, 3) the obstacles encountered, and 4) how the research strategy changed to address those obstacles. In addition, 5) how and where the answer(s) were ultimately found, 6) the part of the answer, if any, you were unable to find, 7) at least three distinct research strategies used to find the missing information (for CUs and PCUs only), and 8)what could be a reason/theory for the unavailability of that information. ___________________________________________________________________ These can be similar to or include any of the following: 1) General basic research, 2) looking for data that can be triangulated, 3) expansion of the original search, which may be accomplished through the employment of similar terminology, 4) research in specific areas related to the request such as white papers, studies, government sources, surveys, industry expert articles and/or blogs, media articles, rankings, company or organization's websites, and 5) looking for a part of the requested information as opposed to its whole, then expanding out or in as appropriate. Also, 6) sometimes identifying related material/subject/information will lead to the answer to the CQ or provide information that allows a triangulation/calculation of the answer. ___________________________________________________________________ The basic construct of 1 distinct research strategy should include details such as 1) where we researched, 2) what we were looking for, 3) why we thought it was/is a good possible place to research, 4) what we found, 5) a hypothesis of why the data is not there, and 6) propose a next step. ____________________________________________________________________ One other important piece of info: Many times looking for a smaller piece of the CQ or a larger piece of the CQ yields a partial answer. However, if it doesn't, it still should be considered acceptable. By substituting a different related term, sometimes answers can be found. As long as the RS of utilizing a substitution meets the 6 constructs above, it should be considered acceptable and thus pass review.

SPREADSHEETS Sometimes our responses take certain formats. These include Google docs, Google slides, Google sheets, CU, or PCU. Today we will discuss spreadsheets (SS). Frequently our clients ask for their response to be delivered in a spreadsheet. We use Google sheets for this. Here are a few aspects about spreadsheets that you will need to know. A couple of things about spreadsheets: 1. Add the SS URL AS SOURCE 1 on the Wonder platform! 2. BE VERY CAREFUL that you are working in your assigned rows/cells only. 3. Sources must go on both the spreadsheet AND on the platform (you will be using a Google doc in place of the platform today, so sources go on both the spreadsheet and the Google doc).

    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.
