Initial Post

One group member from each group submits their Word document containing the website/URL for their presentation by Day 4. Additionally, one group member should submit the same Word document containing their website/URL for their presentation to Week 5 Assignment 1: Methods for Scientific Inquiry Presentation Group Project by Day 4.

After your recording is complete, follow these instructions to create an unlisted YouTube video. You will need the YouTube video URL for this discussion. Submit your YouTube video URL. The best way to do this is to copy and paste the hyperlink URL for the YouTube video into a Word document. Your faculty will access your video via the link. Do not upload a video file (mp4).


You will respond individually to two group presentations by using references and addressing the following:

  • Although you may have more than one question after viewing the groups’ presentations, you will identify one question you have for each of the two presentations and then find an article in the Regis library or Google Scholar that uses each of the two group’s research method (a different research article from what that group included in their presentation) and briefly summarize how it incorporates that research method. Describe the question and how you went about answering it, i.e., where you found the answer.

Provide the complete APA reference for the articles in both of your replies, as well as use proper APA citations.
