To choose the appropriate forms to submit you must first determine if what you are proposing is solely qualitative research or a combination of both qualitative and quantitative research.
Qualitative research is the gathering of data primarily through the methods of participant observation, face-to-face interviews, or open-ended surveys or questionnaires, often for the purpose of addressing questions pertaining to social and/or cultural issues.
Quantitative research generates numerical data or information that can be converted into numbers.
