  • What are the differences between probability and non-probability sampling methods?
  • Describe a research study that you would like to conduct. Include whether you would use a quantitative research design or a qualitative research design. Which sampling method would you use to select your sample?
  • Why would that be the most appropriate method to use?
  • What are the risks of sampling error?
  • Be sure to include at least one scholarly reference, such as the textbook to support your answers.
