As a consultant who specializes in research design, what 4 problems do you foresee?”

(4 points for 4 problems) 2) “Case 8.1 – Professor Little designed a survey instrument to investigate the opinions of students currently enrolled in communication sciences and disorders programs about research methods and their importance to clinical practice. A questionnaire was mailed to 1000 students who were randomly selected from college programs in a national database. Professor Little received 101 responses within the two months after mailing the questionnaire. What do you see as possible shortcomings in the research plan, and what are Professor Little’s options?” (4 points; 50 words)
