You must ensure that all assignments you submit are your own work.
Any ideas or theories based on the work of other writers must be fully acknowledged and correctly referenced both within the text and the bibliography/reference list.
It is unacceptable to quote major sections of text, even if this has been fully referenced.

———————————————————

To complete your Research Project you will need to complete all of the following tasks:

1. Decide upon the issue you wish to research. It may be related to business, law or the social sciences. (i.e. the changes in unemployment statistics over time, the fluctuations in GDP in developing countries, exam success rates in single sex schools compared to mixed schools, etc.)
• You need to set yourself a research question for this part
2. You are required to collect some secondary data, from academic sources, relating to your subject area. (You must include a copy of the data you use in your appendices.) The data you select is up to you, but you must collect sufficient data to allow you to research your subject in enough depth.
3. Use a range of appropriate statistical techniques to display and process this data. (i.e. scatter diagrams, histograms, pie charts, cumulative frequency curves, measures of average, etc.)
4. Analyse what your data shows, and wherever possible, consider the impact of any extraneous variables. You may also wish to consider any criticisms of the data you have used at this point.
• This part might involve answering the question you set yourself in part 1 (above)
5. Outline and discuss any issues you think might relate to the original collection of the data you have used in your report. Your discussion should include the following points;
• An outline of how the data were (or might have been) collected.
• A discussion of some of the problems that might have been experienced by the researchers in collecting this data.
• Your ideas about how to improve on this data collection technique and why you think your method would be better
