Hello Class,

Re: Project 1 (Assignment #1)

It is time to begin work on Project 1. Week 2’s readings is the basis for that project and please review these readings carefully. I will provide you with more information on surveys and research reporting as we go along. For the time being, please focus on the first part of the project.

BEHS300 ? Project #1 : Dr. Priyanthi Silva

You are asked to investigate the following question:

Do political advertisements influence who you vote for?

You are requested to design and carry out a mini survey to answer the research question above.

1. First state the research question.

2. List your independent and dependent variables

3. List your hypothesis

4. Provide details about the type of survey that you intend to carry out to answer your research question.

5. Develop the questionnaire with a maximum of 10 questions you will be asking your respondents in the order in which you will be asking the respondent. You also must present the categories. You need to include your questionnaire in your report.

6. Decide how you are going to administer the questionnaire (face-face, mail, telephone). Using the questionnaire you developed in #5 above, interview at least 5 respondents (your family, friends, co-workers or fellow students are ok for this survey. Given the short period of time we have here use either face- face or telephone survey).

7. Present your results descriptively or in a tabular format where possible. Make sure to include this as part of the report.

8. Based on your survey what can you say about your hypothesis?

9. Prepare a research report along the outline listed below:
