For this task, provide three research questions for your chosen topic of interest. (my topic is the correlation between sexual abuse and adolescent crime) Then, write a corresponding null and alternative hypothesis for each research question. Include clearly defined independent and dependent variables (measures) along with the expected relationship between them (cite a peer-reviewed journal article here if possible to support your ideas). What might be some potential confounds that you want to avoid with each research question/hypothesis in mind? How might you actively work to avoid these concerns within your study?
You may include references if you like, but it is not required for this assignment.
