1. In Hartley’s Chapter 5, Reading 9: “Public Support for Getting Tough on Corporate Crime,” how was the sample that those researchers studied obtained? Whom did they study? Do you think this is a representative sample? What did the researchers do to make it more representative? (You may find the article through the Lamar library online journal. The reference is “Unnever, J. D., Benson, M. L., & Cullen, F. T. (2008). Public support for getting tough on corporate crime: Racial and Political divides. Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, 45(2), 163-190.”) 2. In what condition (that a study is situated for its purposes), a multistage sampling procedure is appropriate and can be the best method to have a representative sample? Please use Reading 10 (Hartley, p. 143-154) research as an example to explain it. (You may find the article through the Lamar library online journal. The reference is “Wilcox, P., Skubak Tillyer, M., & Fisher, B. (2009). Gendered opportunity? School-based adolescent victimization. Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, 46, 245-269.”) 3.Why do some researchers have to use snowball sampling? Is this method justifiable under certain circumstances? Please explain as you are trying to teach us.
1. In Hartley’s Reading 29, Listwan and colleagues examine whether methamphetamine users can be treated effectively in a community-based setting, namely a drug court, without compromise to community safety. Please discuss what makes evaluation research a separate topic from other research? Why do we call this research Evaluation Research? Finally, what can be done to benefit the improvement of the “drug court” program according to the research findings? You may provide your own suggestions from your understandings of the research findings. (You may find the article through the Lamar library online journal. The reference is “Listwan, S., Shaffer, D., & Hartman, J. (2009). Combating methamphetamine use in the community: The efficacy of the drug court model. Crime & Delinquency, 55, 627-644.”) 2. In Reading 30, what rival causal factors did those authors control for to attempt to isolate whether Operation Ceasefire was responsible for the youth homicide reduction? (You may find the article through the Lamar library online journal. The reference is “Braga, A., Kennedy, D., Waring, E., & Morrison Piehl, A. (2001). Problem-oriented policing, deterrence, and youth violence: An evaluation of Boston’s Operation Ceasefire. Journal of Research in Crime and Delinquency, 38 195-225.”)
