Sampling the population based on certain critiques starts with the quality of the participants; 33% will be from graduates, 33% will be from dropouts and 34% will be from candidates who are still enrolled within the institution.
This is critical to attaining a balance between each statistic. There will be students who may be dishonest and feel compelled to only give an emotional answer to any question that they are asked concerning the study. It may be due to dissatisfied grading or a disagreement between a fellow peer.
Building a relationship between the students, the researcher and the instructors is crucial to complete the circle concerning positive relationships directly impacting the students.

Every student deserves to understand what they are expected to do once they enroll; and if they do not exceed expectations they are disciplined by becoming a dropout and attaining a large amount of debt without employment.

[...] Strategy Concerning Demographic Testing Working through the processes of creating positivity through the qualitative study will be critical in communicating with the participants of the study, individuals who feel the study may be one sided or biased may have an issue with trust and understanding what is expected from them during the study.
