Discussion Response

By Day 6

Respond to a classmate by offering a strategy to address the ethical issue she or he identified.

A potential ethical issue in quantitative research could be that no harm should come to the participants (Babbie, 2017). Subjects must not be harmed by the research and should actually benefit from it. This could influence design decisions because the subjects would need to give informed consent. This means the subjects must base their voluntary participation in research projects on a full understanding of the possible risks involved.
