    Ok so this is the research project I've been asked to do but am struggling, will upload what I've already done but struggling to understand what they mean on some of the objectives like "Identify success indicators and limitations; data collection limits.", I got stuck on this part and not sure what they mean, I asked the teacher to give me examples as it seems very vague, but i'm still confused. Can some explain what all this means, i'm still quite confused of what it's asking of me. He said look online at something but can't remember what they are called, basically examples of projects like this one. It seems simple english but reading it I am just baffled to what they mean.
