See attached file.

A well-defined research problem points to a method of investigation. For each method, an appropriate data collection technique should be employed. 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?

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.
