PROJECT PART 1: RESEARCH PROPOSAL Project Part 1: Research Proposal (10 points total) Choose two quantitative variables that you think might be related, then write a short survey that you could give to at least 20 participants.

explain why you think there is a relationship between these variables. Indicate which variable you think might cause a change in the other variable. Address why your research in important or interesting. Population Discuss the population you intend to focus your questions on and what your data will consist of. Answer the following questions in your response: Who is the population of interest (from which you will select your participants in part II of the project)? For the example above relating hours studied and GPA, I might want to consider all college students or I might want to focus on just community college students when I look at the relationship. What ethical issues do you anticipate with your research? Address how any ethical issues identified will be addressed. For example, I might consider that students might not be honest about their GPA unless they can answer the questions privately by writing their responses on paper and dropping it in a box.

    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.
