- awareness of the advantages of the scientific method and of the range of research types/traditions,
- ethical issues in research,
- specifying the purpose and focus of a research project, the research question,
- building the theoretical framework based on a critical literature review,
- formulation of hypotheses,
- selecting and specifying an appropriate research design including experimental and correlational designs,
- selecting/developing valid and reliable methods of data collection including interviews, surveys, observations, and psychometric scales,
- sampling,
- elements of quantitative and qualitative data processing and analysis, and
- reporting research.
