Study (Food Safety) Assignment
Assignment Brief
This assignment is designed to test that you can:

• Evaluate research methods employed to answer a range of research questions;
• Analyse contemporary theoretical and methodological issues in relation to current research literature, including research design, analysis and
interpretation of results.

This assignment is based on a published academic paper.
This assignment is testing your understanding of research methods design – it is not testing knowledge of a particular aspect of food safety, however you will need to also think about the food safety problem to decide whether the methodology the authors have used is appropriate.

[8 marks]

3) The following concepts are important in quantitative research:

a) Unbiasedness b) Replicability
