NOTE; IF YOU WANT TO DO SOMETHING AND YOU ARE WORKING FOR A CRIMINAL JUSTICE AGENCY, THEN I MAY APPROVE YOUR RESEARCH IF YOU CAN GET REAL DATA FROM YOUR AGENCY..JUST NO TOPICS DEALING WITH DUI SINCE THAT IS MY EXAMPLE THAT I AM USING. LET ME KNOW..DON’T JUST SURPRISE ME or you could end up with a zero for this project. If you want to do observational research, send me an email and we can talk about it. ALSO IF YOU ARE TAKING THIS CLASS FOR THE SECOND OR THIRD TIME, YOU MAY NOT RESUBMIT YOUR PRIOR PAPER..YOU MUST SELECT A NEW TOPIC AND DO AN ENTIRELY NEW PROJECT.
ALSO YOU DO NOT HAVE APPROVAL TO COLLECT REAL DATA. THIS IS A PRETEND PROJECT AND YOU WILL MAKE UP YOUR DATA. YOU CAN COLLECT REAL DATA WHEN YOU GET TO GRADUATE SCHOOL.
