How did your survey contribute to your research?
Our survey gave us a general insight into what people think and the way they feel about the criminal justice (at least in this area). We were then able to combine this into our research and learn more about the topics in our survey.
What did you learn about the research project that you can use in the future?
We learned significantly more than we knew before we started this project. Such as how broken the criminal justice system really is and the subtopics within it. We can use this information in the future if we need to write something like a research paper or if we have a discussion with someone on this subject.
What would you change?
How could you have done things differently?
We would give ourselves more time and better defined schedule rather than panicking at the last minute. As mentioned before, we could have done things better by doing them earlier and by making backups of our project files.
