Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Unit 22, M4, D2 K. B D2-Evaluate how the research project could have been improved The topic & main aim of the research was to find out the eating patterns of college students. I feel that the sample that I used were at a right age of 16 to 19 year olds.

I felt that everything was much clearer to calculate and explain rather than interviews because that would?ve been more complex to calculate. Furthermore the research method of questionnaires was the right choice to make and could not have been improved. ...read more.

    The information provided will be biased because it will be from one point of view which is the researcher's point of view. The researcher will only write his opinion and views, this will be unfair on others because they may not agree with the researchers opinions and may have different views on the issues.

    Another advantage could be that usually people complain about their treatment because they get worried that their wounds are not healing, their doctors are not doing anything and so on.
