Analyze Non-Experimental (Non-Causal) Correlational Designs
Using the article by Beauvais, Steward, DeNisco, and Beauvais (2014), prepare a written analysis that addresses the following: Determine the general strengths and weaknesses of correlational designs. Based on your findings, identify the strengths and weaknesses of this particular study. Explain when a correlational design is most useful in an educational setting, and summarize whether this is an appropriate use of a correlational design in this study. Explain why, and if it is not, recommend a more accurate research design. Identify and explain the types of problems correlational designs could best address. Determine if this study’s problem is best addressed by a correlational design. Review the research question being asked in this study, and then provide a sample research question corresponding to a different hypothetical correlational design. Support your assignment with at least this scholarly resource. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included. Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic.
