Purpose: To demonstrate what you have learned (or still need to learn) about the benefits and limitations

of 7 different types of research models.

Target 3: Compare and contrast the benefits and limitations of the types of research models used by scientists.
Target 4: Select and justify why you would use one research model over the other models in a case study.
