I’m trying to study for my Psychology course and I need some help to understand this question.
Suppose you wanted to study the effects of COVID-19 on mood—which of the three methods (case study, naturalistic observation, or survey) might you select and why? What would be the goal?
1. Select a method
2. Develop a testable hypothesis
3. Explain how you would collect data. Who would you collect data from? How would you recruit people right now during the pandemic?
4. Why do you think your approach would be helplful to the understanding of the impacts of COVID-19 on mental health?
5. How do you keep a positive mood during this pandemic?
