Note how the use of the passive in this paragraph directs the focus away from the agent who is doing the action (the 'I') and onto what was done. Since this is a section describing the methods of a study, such a shift in focus is appropriate.
Note how the use of the active voice in this paragraph brings the narrative to life and enables the reader to follow more clearly the agent (Edna) and her actions. This clarity makes it easy to read even long sentences.
