Answer each question below based on your understanding of the assigned readings.
Each response should be approximately 250 words, which is roughly one page double-spaced, so your completed assignment with both responses should be about 2 pages double-spaced every week. Ignoring these length requirements is the easiest way to lose points. 
Questions are worth 3 points each, for a total of 6 points.
Please NUMBER each response.  

Readings: Khan textbook, Chapter 2
Questions:
1) What is informed consent and why is it vitally necessary to the sociological research process? Give examples to illustrate your understanding.
2) In the example discussed on page 22,  is the relationship between higher education and higher earnings a causal one, a correlation, or a spurious relationship? How could this be determined using the scientific method? In your response, ask a sociological research question about this relationship, followed by a hypothesis. (Be sure to ask a sociological question about social variables (think race, class, gender, age, etc) and ask how they relate to each other. It cannot be a yes/no question – you may want to review the lecture on methods and questions before completing this question.) Identify the independent and dependent variables in your question, and explain which research method you think would be best to test your hypothesis, and why it would actually be able to answer your question. 
Grading Rubric
These are analytical reading questions – I am asking you to complete the reading, to think about its meaning and significance, and to begin to apply key concepts from this reading. These are NOT opinion questions, and they are not questions that Google can answer.  To earn full credit, be sure to demonstrate a real engagement with the ideas from the assigned reading. Please do not quote from the readings – translate everything into your own words.
If your discussion of the ideas is lacking – i.e. it is superficial or vague, and/or shorter than the required length – I will deduct a portion of the points and explain this deduction in the Comments section of the assignment. If it is clear to me that you did not complete the reading, your response will earn zero points. As always, any submissions containing plagiarism will receive zero points.
