Hi,
i'm currently trying to do the question :
'' Using material from Item B and elsewhere, assess the strengths and limitations of one
of the following methods for investigating the role of parents in pupils’ achievement:

EITHER questionnaires
OR unstructured interviews ''

and I have absolutely no idea how to set it out. Any help?

Simply identify the strengths and limitations of your chosen research method, and then just try and incorporate a sentence or two into each paragraph linking it back to the topic of parents' roles in education.

For example; "A limitation of using questionnaires to investigate the role of parents in pupils' achievement is low response rates. Financial obligations mean that many parents work full time jobs, and in addition also complete domestic work. Duties such as these may mean that parents simply do not have the time to fill out the questionnaire, thus decreasing the chances of the investigator receiving a high response rate"

Sorry if I haven't been clear enough, please let me know if i haven't, and I'll try and be clearer for you I assume this is AS Sociology? I'm taking it too and at the start I really struggled with these questions, but I've progressed a lot with them

Yeah, it's AS. As much as I enjoy sociology, having one of the worlds most irritating over-eccentric teachers does mean that I learn basically nothing and have to teach myself aha.
