Sources of Inaccuracies/Errors
One potential source of error in this study could be that enough subjects weren’t asked. Another could be that students weren’t accurate when answering our questionnaire. They could have approximated the number of naps taken each week because they couldn’t remember exactly how many naps they take per week. These factors may have given us inaccurate results.
