+NeverSummer Posted August 5, 2011 Share Posted August 5, 2011 Simple scientific method involves a "procedure that has characterized natural science since the 17th century, consisting in systematic observation, measurement, and experiment, and the formulation, testing, and modification of hypotheses." So yes. It could be a "scientific study" if we so wanted to characterize it. No. It couldn't. The key to scientific study is the collection of data. Since you are not collecting data from every user, you are not doing science. Your utter lack of understanding makes me wonder if the sum of your being "schooled in teaching" was you attending high school. Holy smokes! We're doing science! Yay science! No. The folks who built the website might be classified as having done science. What you do is non-science. (Note how it sounds like nonsense?) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Try on Masters in Education. No big deal. The data collection is performed by the cache listing. "Found it", "Did Not Find", etc logs are all maintained on each cache listing. Thereby, collecting the data in one nice, tidy package. Quote Link to comment
