    Hi Piak,

    1) Many avenues of research will be employed to reach a successful outcome.

    2) cross validation.....many expert opinions will be sought to determine how the the final outcome.....finally outcame.

    Hope this helps.

    Longitudinal design.

    A research design where subjects are assessed at several different times in their lives. Usually, you use this design when you are interested in how subjects change over time. These studies are often expensive, difficult to conduct, and have lots of trouble without drop outs. They also will require more complex statistical analyses. But they provide a wealth of information that could not be obtained readily with other types of research designs. Here are two examples of longitudinal designs.

    Pardon me, but don't you mean they have lots of trouble with dropouts?

    Hi, cutecanute.
    Thanks for your research, I stand corrected and have edited the misleading statement in my earlier post.


    Have fun.

    Note:

    The sentence should be: "These studies are often expensive, difficult to conduct, and have lots of trouble with drop outs."

    The mistake was in the original and does not belong to CUTECANUTE.

    The sentence means that for whatever reason (moving out of the area, losing interest) some people drop out of the program.
