Imagine you are teaching a research methods course at your local university, and you want your students to conduct a survey as part of their course requirements. For this week’s class meeting, you want to provide them with a lecture about sampling techniques. Assemble a PowerPoint presentation that explains, compares, and contrasts probability and nonprobability sampling techniques. What do you feel your students should know? Be sure to include at least two examples of each, as well as the most appropriate context in which to use each technique. Please be sure to use and reference professional resources such as your recent course readings in your presentation.
Your presentation should meet the following requirements:
- Written communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.
- APA formatting: All resources and citations should be formatted according to current APA style and formatting guidelines.
- Length: 8–15 PowerPoint slides, including a title slide and a citation slide.
- Speaker’s notes: Include speaker’s notes for your presentation in the Notes section provided below each PowerPoint slide.
Refer to the An Analysis of Sampling Techniques Scoring Guide to ensure you meet the grading criteria. When your presentation slides are complete, submit them to the assignment area.
