Instructions: Using my response, I need a response to the professor’s question. Student response: Data Collection Principles in Relation to Positive Social Change The data collection method should intertwine with research components such as purpose, problem, research questions, as well as design. The alignment between data collected and research components must be cautious in articulating the narrative flow of logic and consistency across different study elements. This article will reflect on the principle I will use in evaluating alignment in my discipline between data collection methods as well as other research components. Other research components involve problems and the purpose of the research questions and design. Secondly, the article will discuss the role I will play in terms of positive social change based on the knowledge and skills acquired from the course discipline. Data collection to a researcher is the best way to acquire the best outcome involving the research question. The collection of data through measuring and gathering depending on interested variables should reflect on the researcher’s principles in his or her discipline. As a researcher, the discipline I will observe will always be aligned with instructional strategies, learning objectives, and assessments (Mitchell, 2018). Learning objectives will help expound what I have learned in my discipline to the real world (Couper, 2017). Additionally, assessment enables me to comply with social ethics by not endangering the environment in the name of research. Finally, instruction strategies enable me to be efficient in the study. These principles will be a handful in reasoning out the research components that include research purpose and problems, questions, and design. Research of any kind should linger on the positive social change based on the knowledge and skills from the discipline of interest (Chu, 2017). Positive social change is the outcome in the development of social and human conditions. The research that I will be conducting will be on the betterment of society. The conditional improvement of society can occur on different levels, such as families, individuals, organizations, communities, or governments. The positive social change I will deploy will be driven by the actions and ideas that correlate with real-world implications. Applying positive social change will inspire positive change and remarkable community achievements. The change will come from the implemented issues addressed by the community members. Positive social change will reshape the community’s way of thinking about the future by giving hope and opportunities to enable them to live life to the fullest (Stephan, 2016). Utilizing the knowledge and skills from the course discipline, the positive social change I will deploy will develop from numerous sources, such as diffusion (contact with other societies), technological change, and environmental change. In conclusion, the discipline involving data collection should have one common result, a positive social change. A positive social change is the way betterment of social and human conditions. As a researcher, the principles deployed in data collection will rely on the narrative flow of logic and consistency across different study elements. The use of logic will enable me to develop instructional strategies, learning objectives, and assessments. The utilization of logic will allow the research to be conducted on society’s betterment. Through positive social change, society will be directed to remarkable achievements since troubling issues that affect the community will be dealt with. The only way to deal with social issues can be through logical discipline that encourages assessment, instruction strategy, and learning objectives. References Chu, H., & Ke, Q. (2017).

As such, positive social change is not always popular, because it means upsetting an established system of negative social conditions. So, how do you prepare to upset the status quo as it relates to your own research in the future?
