Subject: RE: Important sampling question

This is a much debated subject within the research world!  It depends on so many variables as well as whether it quantitative or qualitative research etc. so all I have done is to search for some easy to reach pages on the subject.  But I have attached a paper that might help if you cannot decide on specific numbers and need to change your ideas as the research gets underway!<><><>

Best wishes

Subject: Important sampling question

Hi Folks

I was asked an important question about sampling. Does anyone know what sample size and make up a good sample needs to have when testing for usability for people with cognitive and learning disabilities?

What do people normally do?

Are there any research papers on this? What has been found to be reliable and

All the best
