Watch this video to learn about the questions to ask yourself when choosing achievable research outcomes.

Watch the video and then summarise what you have learned.

One of the main issues is not trying to take on something that is not achievable.

Good questions to ask are:

  • Will I be able to get access to the sites or people I need?
  • How much will the research cost?
  • Do I have the expertise to do this research?
