Q: What is the best method for data collection if I am researching the relationship between the use of technology and academic performance?
I am a Senior High School student. I would like to know what is the best data collection method to use when researching the relationship between students' use of technology and their academic performance?
Hello Joshua – Welcome to the forum!
Quantitative research based on data analysis may be an appropriate method to examine the relationship between technology use and academic performance. Consider combining surveys and observations (with regard to the extent of technology use) and testing hypotheses about whether the extent of technology use is correlated with results.
For more information on the points discussed above, you may refer to the following resources:

Hope that helps.
