Identify the three components do researchers need to think about in planning a study and provide an example of each component.
- Creswell (2017) advances 3 research approaches. Identify the 3 approaches and briefly explain how to distinguish them from each other.
- Identify the three components do researchers need to think about in planning a study and provide an example of each component.
- A worldview is “a basic set of beliefs that guide action” (Guba, 1990, p.17). According to Creswell, each researcher brings a worldview to a study. How do individuals develop their worldviews and how might these worldviews affect research design?
- Under which conditions might a qualitative research approach be more useful than a quantitative approach?
- Choosing one of the 4 worldviews that Creswell outlines, describe a possible research study that aligns with the worldview that includes a topic, a research design, and appropriate research methods. Be sure to explain how your topic aligns with the chosen worldview.
- Why should researchers draft a working title early in the development of their projects?
- Creswell argues that the question is not can a research topic be researched, but should a research topic be researched. Assess and explain why and how a topic for research is chosen: How does the researcher understand if the topic can and should be researched?
- In your own words, articulate the purpose of the review of literature and the forms that it can take?
