issues that might affect your survey results. You should use one of the following techniques: random , stratified , cluster , systematic , or convenience. Your choice of strategy should be based on the purpose of your survey and your population. For this assessment I will be using random sampling and convenience sampling. I will use random sampling to produce representative samples to conduct my survey. I will also use convenience sampling for non-probability sampling to conduct my survey. The only potential issues that might affect my survey results is the questions not being answered. I believe that not having enough participants for the survey could damage my results. 1

    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.
