Managing Data Collection Nancie presented the group with a handout (found on Blackboard) on the overhead that explained how to manage data collection, “All the answers to the questions found in “Topics to Investigate” should be developed by using paragraph format, using attributive tags, being informed by primary and/or secondary sources, and synthesizing other sources of information. A collaborative researcher’s notebook/ journal should compile and categorize growing amounts of information. In other words, organize the group’s research beneath major headings, and as the information develops, determine what heading the information fits under. The group should categorize as they go, therefore they won’t have a huge mess at the end of the data-generating process. Conversely, if you organize categorically, the report will practically write itself. Create headings by reviewing your proposal’s “Topics to Investigate” section and articulating 5 broad categories to hold your data. Determine what information your reader will need to lead him/her to the report’s recommendations”. (Report #6 Headings and Data Gathering) Heading will most likely change during the gathering process.
Assignment The assignment will be one document per group, five pages of collaborative research, one page for each heading. There should also be a work cited page. The draft for this assignment is due April 9, 2010 via Blackboard.
Team Meeting During this time the teams were to pick a head journal director to be in charged. Second, the teams came up with five heading to start with for document #6.
