Observer Presence

The lecture on Observation Skills stated, “your involvement and immersion in the study has affected those being studied, your findings, and yourself.”

Analyze how the presence of an observer could impact the study being conducted. Support your findings with relevant research and post to the Discussion Area by Sunday, May 29, 2016. Respond to at least two other classmates’ postings before the end of the week.

Looking Ahead:
