This reflection is difficult, my week has been equally so. My family has fallen to the flu and my last four days have blurred together with fevers, medicine, crying babies, no sleep, and my attempts to study. I am proud of myself. I am proud of my paper, and I am sick. Watching the videos has been the hardest, I will have to return to them later to try to get a better understanding. I spent most of my week studying regression analysis, problem statements, purpose statements, and reading other related quantitatively studies in the University Library.
I am learning the different ways that language changes in the problem and purpose statements based on the specific study design. It is wonderfully challenging, I just wish my kids had not shared their cold. I am most excited for week 2’s feedback, the resources in week one helped immensely with this weeks assignment. I look forward to learning if I am on the right track and where I can improve in building a great mock study.
Overwhelmed is a bit of an understatement, but I will be ready for next week.
