For this discussion forum you must post once and reply to all of your group mates’ posts.
For your post, create your own Topic, Research Problem, Research Purpose, and Research Questions for a hypothetical mixed methods study. You must have an overarching MM question and at least one QUAN and one QUAL question (so, at least three questions total), You should be able to write the Topic in a couple words and the problem, purpose, and questions in a sentence apiece.
For your replies, evaluate and give feedback to your group mates’ TPPQs. Pay close attention to the flow from broad and overarching (topic) to most specific (research question) and to the fidelity of the flow (that each logically connects to one another). Also, pay close attention to see that the QUAN and QUAL questions are integrated and that they are both needed to answer the overarching MM question.
You will be addressed on the fidelity and flow of your TPPQ and the quality of feedback you give to your group mates.
