Research to Case
Write a minimum of a 1000-word paper, answering the questions listed below based on the following scenario.
A large airline company has asked you to research and answer the question: What effect does the position of the flight attendant have on the length of time it takes to evacuate an aircraft in an emergency? You will be using trained flight attendants and participants from the general public to complete the research.
The positions of the flight attendant will be as follows:
Position 1 – Standing by the exit but giving no instructions.
Position 2 – Standing by the exit giving instructions.
Position 3 – Standing behind the crowd of passengers following them to the exit and giving instructions.
Position 4 – From the back of the crowd of passengers pushing through the crowd to the exit continuously giving instructions.
What type of research will you use for this project? And why?
What is the hypothesis and null hypothesis for this project?
What ethical considerations must you address and how would you address these considerations?
What research design would you use? And why?
Draw out the design.
What topics would you need to research for the literature review?
Create an annotated bibliography on the topics listed in question 6.
Chaos inevitably develops within a crowd during an emergency. Since the research needs to simulate an emergency situation, what would you do to encourage the participants and create disorder?
Based on the data results, discuss the outcome of the research and the conclusions drawn from the research.
Using a datasheet, fill in the cells of your design with the appropriate data.
