Consider the dissertation problem and its relation to the research methodology and data collection methods employed in the study. Is there an appropriate relation between each element? Use appropriate references about data collection methods to address the following questions:

Was the research design consistent with the methods chosen?
What additional items could the author have said about the data collection strategies?
Do you think the data needed to answer the research question(s) could have been collected differently - why or why not? What other methods would you recommend and why? If not, why not? This includes the data collection methods as well as how the methods were conducted or implemented.
Add any additional comments for evaluation not addressed above.
For all the questions above, remember to explain how you came to your conclusions. Support your answers with explanation or evidence drawn from the dissertation and from course readings.
