Database Construction and Sampling

Creating your own database is an excellent way for students to learn the trials and tribulations of data collection and data management. It provides an opportunity to discuss etheical issues in data collection as well as data integrity. Furthermore, students will see that data in the real world does not always present itself as neatly as it appears in textbooks Web-based databases, but that it needs to be organized, carefully labeled, and proofread.
