Design a study: examining if students become more liberal due to college attendance, describe your construct(liberalism), describe your measure(how will you measure liberalism?), describe your comparison groups(freshman vs. seniors), discuss your hypothesis-expected findings, and limitations to your study design

Yes, they become more liberal due to the fact that they are forced to go to school and see all these people they may not be comfortable with at first, but will eventually warm up to them. Liberalism is when people are more open minded about others ideas, beliefs, and openness to listen to others with different beliefs. To measure liberalism we could make up a chart called something that people wont get the hint if its about liberalism, and we make up about 30-60 questions on things liberal people would believe, then we test it on people we think to be liberal and retest with similar tests a few weeks later to see if it’s accurate. In theory freshman are going to be less liberal than seniors.
