Hi!
This is often asked in paper 2 to evaluate your alternate study design.
Practical terms is pretty straightforward. It means how "doable" is your study? Is it ethical and easy to conduct? Will it approved by the authorities depending on where and when you plan to conduct it?

Methodological terms include:
1. type of experiment and its relevance to the aim of the study.
2. type of research method and its feasibility.
3. sample size and if it is representative of the general/target population.
4. the experimental design.
5. sampling technique

You can check the CIE psychology syllabus for your year to be more certain.

Hope this helps. Good luck!
