SCS 285 Project Two Guidelines and Rubric


In this project, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following competency:

  • Analyze the benefits and drawbacks of collecting various types of data


You have recently applied for another position in the company you work for and have been called in for a second interview! For this round, you’ve been asked by the interview committee to present an analysis of the collected data from the research you initially reviewed, with a specific focus on data-collection types. This will be presented in a formal interview presentation.


Second Interview Presentation
You are analyzing studies related to a research topic in your field by discussing different types of data collection, their benefits and drawbacks, and how your chosen research studies utilize different collection methods. In your first project, completed in Module Four, you completed your initial analysis of the methodologies used. In your second milestone, also submitted in Module Four, you finalized your research choices by submitting two of each type of research methodology and flexing your “skilled consumer of research” skills by looking at your gathered research as a whole in order to identify patterns in data-collection types and some high-level credibility threats to the research. For this project, complete the following:

  1. Describe the attributes of a skilled consumer of research. Include the following:
    1. The most helpful perspectives a consumer can utilize
    2. A description of how you know when you have enough information
    3. A description of how you scrutinize the credibility of data
  2. Identify multiple potential threats to the credibility of your research results for each of your selected research studies. Include the following:
    • A description of potential biases or perspectives that might threaten the credibility of the results
    • An explanation of ethical issues that might threaten the credibility of the results—consider the following:
      1. Disclosure
      2. Blind or double-blind studies
      3. Cultural awareness
      4. Humane treatment of subjects
      5. Unethical structuring of studies (methods, selection, etc.)
  3. Analyze the relationship of data-collection types to social science research methodologies. Use your analysis from Milestone Two in Module Four. Include the following:
    • The most commonly used quantitative data-collection types in social sciences based on your analysis of your research articles. Consider why this choice of data collection method might be so common.
    • The least commonly used quantitative data-collection types in social sciences based on analysis of your research articles. Consider why this choice of data collection method might be less common.
    • The most commonly used qualitative data-collection types in social sciences based on analysis of your research articles. Consider: why might this choice of data collection method be so common?
    • The least commonly used qualitative data-collection types in social sciences based on analysis of your research articles from Consider: why might this choice of data collection method be less common?
  4. Explain the relevance of various data-collection types to research question(s). Include the following:
    • A classification of the data in each study—is it quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methodology? Be sure to include an example of each methodology.
    • An explanation of why this data-collection type fits well with the research question from your chosen studies from Milestone Two in Module Four

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from and send us the report.

  • I received some comments from my teacher. Can you help me with them?

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

    After the 7-day period, free revisions become unavailable, and we will be able to propose only the paid option of a minor or major revision of your paper. These options are mentioned on your personal order page.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

    You will get the first version of your paper in a non-editable PDF format within the deadline. You are welcome to check it and inform us if any changes are needed. If everything is okay, and no amendments are necessary, you can approve the order and download the .doc file.

If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
