correlational and experimental design

Assessment Description

For this assignment, again, it is beneficial that you keep the topic you would like to research for the capstone proposal in mind. The capstone will require a literature review for your proposal, of which you may use articles obtained during this course.

Select a peer-reviewed, non-experimental research study that exemplifies a correlational and quasi-experimental design (use keywords method, results, and discussion in your Boolean search).

  1. Compare the research design of the two studies chosen.
  2. Were the research designs appropriate to their hypothesis (the goal of the research or research question)? Why or why not?
  3. Discuss the limitations of drawing conclusions from a non-experimental study.
  4. Did the study have a random sample? Were there other problems that were noticed?
