Module 4 Overview
Just like quantitative designs, there are numerous sampling methods. Random (or probability) sampling is the gold standard with convenience sampling being the least reliable. Multiple sampling techniques lie in between the two. The research design has an influence on the sampling technique used. Ethics influence how subjects are recruited to participate in research

Discussion 4
Discuss the sampling plan that was used in your quantitative research article? Is there a different sampling plan that would have been better? How might you change the sampling plan to make this study more culturally diverse? What are the ethical considerations that impact sampling and subject diversity? Use a URL or permalink from the university Library for your research article in your post (do not upload a PDF of the research article).
