Intepretation
- Prosser & Trigwell, 1997 68% of two-year college faculty reported at least some stress from teaching underprepared students

Background complementary
basis of project Method Theory convenient
not much reliable Reliable
requiring technique Data collection organization
not cover every research area 6 questions to select the data if I have seen further
[than certain other men]
it is by standing upon
the shoulders of . 1. What were the agency's or researcher's goals when collecting the data?
2. What data was collected and what is it supposed to measure?
3. When was the data collected?
4. What methods were used? Who was responsible and are they available for questions?
5. How is the data organized?
6. What information is known about the success of that data collection?
Why cannot I find the data??? 1. It is done by psychology student, so maybe it is unfair.
2. The data is GPA, but GPA is not the way to measure smart or not.
3. It is one day before the thanksgiving give, maybe some students are going back home.
4. Just ask students to tell their GPA by themselves, not accuracy.
5. By the students themselves.
6. Just some of the psychology students’ GPA is higher than chemistry students

Examples: Data Models Unfair and Subjective (What were the agency's or researcher's goals when collecting the data?) (What data was collected and what is it supposed to measure?) What methods were used? How is the data organized? What information is known about the success of that data collection? Time For Some Questions!!!!! Compiled Data 1. Do you know about the recent unrest and breakdown of the Egyptian government? 2. Who won the Chelsea Liverpool faceoff last Sunday? 3.Are you aware that Chernobyl birds are small brained? 4.
