INVESTIGATION METHODOLOGY - Coggle Diagram
Helps prevent mistakes that have been made in other studies.
Expand the horizon of the study and guide the researcher to focus
in your problem avoiding deviations from the original approach.
Inspire new lines and areas of research
Provides a frame of reference to interpret the results of the study
The literature review consists of detecting, obtaining and consulting the bibliography and other materials that may be useful for the purposes of the study, as well as in extracting and collecting the relevant and necessary information
Primary sources (direct). They constitute the objective of bibliographic research
or literature review and provide first-hand data
Our research may focus on a very specific assessment or measurement objective; for example, a study that only aims to measure variables
Have we done a proper review of the Literature? Sometimes one may wonder whether or not he did a correct review of the literature and a good selection of references to integrate them into the theoretical framework.
The design, the data that are collected, the way to obtain them, the sampling and other components of the research process are different in exploratory, descriptive, correlational and explanatory studies
It basically depends on two factors: the state of knowledge on the research topic revealed by the review of the literature and the focus that the researcher intends to give to his study
Correlational studies measure the two or more variables that are intended to see if
they are related or not in the same subjects and then the correlation is analyzed.
As mentioned above, there are two factors that influence whether a
research begins as exploratory, descriptive, correlational or explanatory:
Sometimes an investigation can be characterized as exploratory, descriptive,
correlational or explanatory, but not solely situated as such.
In an investigation we can have one, two or several hypotheses; Hypotheses tell us what we are looking for or trying to prove and can be defined as tentative explanations of the phenomenon under investigation, formulated as propositions.
The answer may be, in the same investigation all the
types of hypotheses because the research problem requires it.
a scientific investigation the conclusions are expected to be findings or discoveries that yield new information on the subject of a theoretical essay the conclusions are expected to defend a form of interpretation of the subject in questionn
VARIABLES AND SOURCES
is a property that can vary whose
variation is measurable. Examples of variables are sex, motivation
intrinsic to work, physical attractiveness, concept learning,
What does it mean to measure? According to the classical definition of the term - widely spread - measure means "to assign numbers to objects and events according to rules."
How do you know if a Measurement Instrument is Reliable and Valid? The first one is improvisation. Some people believe that choosing a
measuring instrument or developing one is something that can be taken lightly
What procedure is followed to construct an instrument of
Build a new measuring instrument according to proper technique
Choose an instrument already developed and available, which is adapted to the
requirements of the particular study
What does the Collection Stage entail?
Select a measuring instrument from those available in the study of the
behavior or develop one (the data collection instrument).
This instrument must be valid and reliable, otherwise we cannot
We base it on your results.
