Week 2 –
1: Analyze Methods to
Develop a Research Chart
Instructions You will now add information from this week’s materials to your Research Chart. In the corresponding section, provide the name(s) of the method you reviewed, its primary use and when it should be used, strengths and limitations of the method,
, and one example of when the method could be used (include your interests or something more general). Length: Updated research chart, not including title and reference pages. Be sure to cite this week’s resources used in your assignment. Week 2 – Assignment 2: Evaluate Quasi-Experimental Designs Instructions For this assignment, review Questions 1 and 8 on page 268 in the Review Questions
section from your text.
Then, develop a brief paper responding to these two questions. Question 1 asks about the two main exceptions of a quasi-experimental design being structured similar to an experiment, and Question 8 invites thoughtful reflection as to why single-case design is considered an experimental research design. Support your assignment with at least two scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including seminal articles, may be included. Length: 1 page, not including title and reference pages Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
