Thus far, we have addressed theory, practice, and experience in a variety of ways, inviting you, the reader, to consider S-STTEP as a methodology (in reality or in possibility). We intend for readers to consider S-STTEP at least in an imaginary context as they ponder the possibility of using S-STTEP methodology. Consequently, it seems fitting that we pause to ask, can you identify an S-STTEP? We also wonder if we need to clarify aspects of S-STTEP to help in this consideration. We ask, how can you best identify the characteristics of S-STTEP research design? This exercise explores the characteristics of S-STTEP research design and allows application of the characteristics in selected vignettes.
