What was “learned” from the mock studies conducted per the Activity 1 and/or 2 proposals (note: do not collect actual data)? For this activity, pretend that you collected data, per the activity 1 and/or 2 proposal, so you will need to make something up. Based on this, describe what data was collected, how it was analyzed (per Week #3 assignment), and what possible findings occurred as a result of this mock study. Note that “learned’ in the context of this activity is not what insights you had regarding the research process, but rather, what your findings were, resulting from the mock study conducted. The findings should be presented by research question with supporting mock data, such as interview quotes from participants. Also, analyze the findings as compared to key studies, based on the theoretical/conceptual framework.
Please note that the essay should be in active voice in past tense.
Also, if you could write the essay to show that the study was conducted through case studies, as described in the prior attached document.
