PSY 326 - PSY 326 Week 3 DQ 1 Descriptive Research
Descriptive Research. Evaluate and briefly discuss the three descriptive designs presented in Chapter 3 (case studies, archival research, and observational research). Be sure to discuss the strengths and weaknesses associated with each approach. Which of these three approaches do you think is the best descriptive design and why? Finally, recommend research questions or topics for which each of these designs would be effective in investigating.
Your initial post should be 250 to 300 words. Utilize a minimum of two peer-reviewed sources that were published within the last 10 years and are documented in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Provide a substantive response to at least two of your peers. Do you agree with the choice of the best descriptive design? Why or why not? Are appropriate examples of research topics for each design given in the post?
