Writing a quality research question is something I have little experience with, but I am excited to practice. Through my readings I have found a number of attributes that make for a good research question, but these are the two that I found most useful:

  1. Focus on something I am are interested in.
    • Focusing my topic and objective can help direct my research methodology.
    • Interest can help me persevere through the tough times.
  2. Find a balance between complexity and specificity.
    • Complexity gives me the room to explore a topic, with the potential to refine my question as I progress.
    • Specificity, but not too much, can help narrow my research down to avoid wasted time. Defining specific variables early on will also help reduce scope creep.
