However because of repeated observation they are deemed to be more powerful than cross observation study as they are able to exclude time invariant unobserved in individual observation (Bjorklund, 2000).
The first step is to review the outcome of what is to be evaluated when it comes to the evaluation of the project. Survey outcome s which goes in line with the survey goals and objectives are selected. The data usually comes to the administrators in summary form.

When the showed outstanding growth moved to fostered care spurts of even five times they were growing. They also seem to undergo through puberty faster and at a younger age thus missing out long spells of growths that most children seem to experience. The growth can not be contributed to nutrition as it was also adequate when they were in the orphanages thus attributed to lack of attentive environment (Bjorklund, 2000).
Problems a researcher may face
The first problem is getting a good sample to carry out his study. The study has to be carried out for a long period of time in order to be able to record the variables. This means the researcher should have a number of children in deprived
