Developing a Research Question
Ask the following 8 questions to evaluate the quality of your research question and the ease with which you should be able to answer it:

Does the question deal with a topic or issue that interests me enough to spark my own thoughts and opinions?

Is the question easily and fully researchable?

What type of information do I need to answer the research question?
e.g., The research question, "What impact has deregulation had on commercial airline safety?," will obviously require certain types of information:

statistics on airline crashes before and after
statistics on other safety problems before and after
information about maintenance practices before and after
information about government safety requirements before and after
Is the scope of this information reasonable? (e.g., can I really research 30 on-line writing programs developed over a span of 10 years?)
Given the type and scope of the information that I need, is my question too broad, too narrow, or o.k.?
What sources will have the type of information that I need to answer the research question (journals, books, internet resources, government documents, people)?
Can I access these sources?
Given my answers to the above questions, do I have a good quality research question that I actually will be able to answer by doing research?
