## "Easy proposals" (e.g., same study with a different population or in a different situation) are worth much less than
"more complex proposals" (e.g., combining two findings to predict a third). Take another look at the “Literature Review and
Proposal” handout for ideas about “more complex proposals” that will earn you more points!
