Introduction On Childhood Obesity
Welcome to Unit 5. This unit continues the portion of the course about research designs. This week we will be going over the ubiquitous method – The Survey. Surveys, inventories, and questionnaires appear to be the “go-to” method to collect data. These methods have the advantage of collecting a lot of data very quickly, but have the disadvantage of participants not providing the truth, skipping questions, lying, or misunderstanding the questions. This week you get the opportunity to delve into these issues and create your own survey. This is an important skill to develop.
