Some Advice for the Future
The research project is not, by any means, an easy assignment. The first bit of advice I have for future students, is to understand that finding a malleable topic is a difficult task and before you jump right in to collecting your data you should be able to clearly define what exactly it is you are looking for. This assignment is also very time consuming, so instead of waiting till the last few days to compile all of your research you should start doing it as soon as you can. That goes for conducting your survey as well, the sooner you are able to pass out and collect data the better off you will be. It might also be a good idea to to conduct a survey with plenty of comparable data online, it is easier to build off of a prior and similar study than to try and stumble through on your own. Keeping your information organized is also very important, you are going to have a lot of data to collect and interpret and will no doubt make mistakes.
