Thirdly, where the sociologist has interpretivist perspective, detachment may seem a big barrier to overcome. The researcher cannot observe the full picture of a sample being questioned because he relies on responses. Apart from that, the pre-coded answers limit the chance of clarifying certain questions and addressing misunderstandings of the respondent. This roots to the aim of questionnaire, in addressing large scale population in order to draw generalisations; the concept of individuality is lost.

Thirdly, there is uneven distribution of workload amongst underwriters. The rating and policy writing departments may be overstaffed. The incentive system may not be the best as it is giving rise to a lot of backlogs and uneven prioritization among different types of tasks. Besides, it also violates the FIFO policy implemented by the company. Some of the data used by the company to estimate TATs and Throughputs is outdated as it has been taken from 1986, whereas it was mentioned in the case that there were significant process improvements between 1986 and 1991.
The reason for this is because in tests like these observed differences are usually due to chance differences in sampling. Meaning that, let’s say the p value is more than the significant level of what is being tested or if it’s less than what is being tested. If it is more the null hypothesis is rejected, and if it is less the null hypothesis is rejected in favor of an additional hypothesis. Which is more in the line of saying that it is accepted. The null hypothesis for this experiment was that there would be no changes in allele or genotype frequencies.
Evaluate research into Circadian rhythms (16 marks) One of the main issues with research in to Circadian rhythms is the fact the some of the early research has admitted to being flawed when estimating the time length of a free running cycle with in the body. These flaws are likely to be to do with the methods used to estimate the amount of time that these cycles ran for; therefor meaning these methodological issues could affect the generalizability of any results found from the early studies. To explore the effects of circadian rhythms experimenters used case studies and self-report methods. Because of these small samples in the case studies and the possibility of falsified information from the self-report studies this brings methodological issues in to play. These issues could affect the external validity of the results –the results could be valid within the study but (high internal validity) but outside the study they are not- this means the results are harder to generalise to the target population.
An author cannot state that America has a high rate of infant deaths because of premature birth and a large number of minorities while also arguing that America does not have a high rate of infant death. This article not only fails my initial plausibility test but also does not provide information that is logically believable. References Atlas, Dr. S. W. (2011, October 3).

The larger expenses coming along with high quality and services render salespeople a disadvantage when talking to their clients for business. The standards of performance (SOP) set for extra compensation seem unrealistic, with 75% of salespeople earning no commission in the first half of 1992, and so conceivably, fail to motivate them. This makes the result control less effective as they failed to evoke the desired behaviors – achieving sales targets. Together with other offers by competitors, this resulted in high turnover rate. Profit Sharing - Result controls may serve well with congruence between employees’ and company’s objectives, but employees take for granted the law-required 10% profit sharing of the company’s income and so their motivational effect seems little.
