On October 17th, we had to have a plan about what our civic engagement project would be about. I decided to write about a topic that I was very interested in. As a student-athlete, I find myself having a hard time balancing schoolwork and athletics. I want to see where other student-athletes stand on this subject so I decided to come up with the topic of how playing a collegiate sport has an effect on academic performance.
We also went over different types of research methods. The different types methods include, qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methodology. Qualitative includes research based on observation and language, quantitative includes research based on numerical statistics, while mixed methodology includes both. At the end of class, we were asked to share our ideas and our methods. I shared my topic to the class and share that I was going to use a mixed-methodology for my research.
