An education expert is researching teaching methods and wishes to interview teachers from a particular school district. She randomly selects 10 schools from the district and interviews all of the teachers at the selected schools. Does this sampling plan result in a random sample? What type of sample is it? Explain.

This sampling plan does not result in a random sample because subgroups were randomly selected, and participants were not selected randomly. This is cluster sampling because the entire population was divided into internally heterogeneous groups (clusters), and several clusters were chosen for analysis using simple random sampling.
