This module focuses on sampling techniques. However, there may be times when you need to use a number generator to simulate a simple random sample. Random number generators could be used to avoid bias in the sample selection process. In this assignment, you will explore the circumstances under which a random number generator is used and experiment with selecting and using one.
First, research random number generators. Then, respond to the following in a paper.
When would you use a random number generator?
Select a random number generator and use it to generate at least ten numbers.
Your paper should be two double-spaced pages. Use current APA formatting to cite your sources.
Include a link to your selected random number generator and a screenshot of the numbers you generate.
