Dear Student,
Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are asking for help in starting a quantitative research plan. I shall assume that this is part of the study that you have done previously. But doing that on a qualitative position can be quite taxing; I advise making a much more simple study by adopting it to a study that can be measured. I have started some ideas for you below; it is up to you to expand it. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.
