  5. 5. Research Question v. Hypothesis<br />
  6. 6. We plan an experimental design in order to test the hypothesis. The experiment generates information which we collect.<br />Collecting data<br />
  7. 7. Data collected from the experiment has to be analyzed to make sense out of it. <br />Analyzing data<br />
