The term confidentiality may be defined as, spoken or written in confidence; charge with secrets while anonymity is defines as, unknown name, of unknown authorship. During the research process, confidentiality of data and anonymity of a participants can be maintained by ensuring the separation of data from identifiable individuals and storing the code linking data to individuals securely.

  18. I strongly believe that it can be quite beneficial for both students and teachers to attend and participate in Research Day activities in various institutions.In terms of students they can benefit in the sense that by attending different Research Days they can become more knowledgeable of different things due to the information that is presented at these institutions.More importantly they can see samples of different researches done and get a better idea on how to conduct theirs.Additionally students can get ideas on how to conduct Research Day at their own institutions.Where the teacher is concerned they can benefit just as much as students by looking at the different information presented and get ideas on how to help their students on Research Day.
    Where Research Day is concerned at my institution I plan to participate by attending the different sessions and gathering as much information as possible and asking questions in instances where I might not be clear so as to get a better understanding and become more knowledgeable so that I can later help in educating and assisting others to the best of my ability.

What better way to do it than using research. Attending research day at different schools will benefit both teachers and students as they will get adequate information and many ideas of how to conduct research. They will also know that research is not just asking questions but will know the relevant factors that a research entails which are very important.

  31. Research Day is beneficial to both students and teachers. This informative day provides a wealth of useful information that both stakeholders can capitalize on to enhance the and learning process of research at the trust level. Teachers will be able to experience the strategies employed by other instructors, as well as garner visual representations of these strategies. Students will certainly be able to view and ask questions in relation to research projects. This will ultimately help them in their own researches. As for me, I plan to capitalize on whatever is provided at my exposal during Research Day in an effort to aid the completion of my Research project.
