Which type of sampling is appropriate and why? (probability or qualitative)

A researcher wants to understand the concept of sitebased school management. He has located a school district

that has spent one year in planning and writing guidelines

for site-based management at six selected schools. The

researcher is primarily interested in how a site-based management team operates and whether this affects the role

of the principal and the school’s relationship to the district’s central management. A site-based management

team consists of six members from the community and

three teachers plus the principal as an ad hoc member. A

central office facilitator frequently attends the monthly

meetings after conducting six orientation sessions. How

The assignment is based on Bellamy’s Australia Limited (ASX code BAL) – a report for the Bellamy’s Australia audit committee.

Students may choose to submit the assignment individually, or in groups up to three students (maximum).

The objective of the assignment is to assess students’ understanding and application of the concepts and theories learnt in BFA713 Auditing and Assurance.
