X “needs to justify that each assumption was probably true, otherwise the study could be irrelevant. To assume, for example, that participants answered honestly, X can explain how the identities of participants were concealed and confidentiality was preserved.
X “should review the scope, limitation, and delimitation sections. The scope is what the study covered and is closely connected to the specific problem framed. The limitations are the constraints that were beyond X’s control but could have affected the study outcome. X needs to explain how these constraints were dealt with. The delimitations were the conditions set by X including the sample size and the geographic area selected. X needs to explain how she controlled her own bias.”
I will add, assumptions are the elements of a study that are often taken for granted. This section should list what is assumed to be true about the information gathered in the study. State the assumptions being accepted for the study as methodological, theoretical, or topic-specific. For each assumption listed, you must also provide an explanation. Provide a rationale for each assumption, incorporating multiple perspectives, when appropriate.
