These links offer information useful to my work coaching doctoral candidates and to others who have similar interests.

The collection is both part of my Research Inquiry Mindset (RIM) tm series and a work in progress (WIP), thus I invite you to revisit in future.

Hope you find value.

Craig Barton, Ph.D. 6.1 Statistical Analysis. Types of Research Designs. The function of a research design is to ensure that the evidence obtained enables you to effectively address the research problem logically and as unambiguously as possible.

Types of Research Designs

In social sciences research, obtaining information relevant to the research problem generally entails specifying the type of evidence needed to test a theory, to evaluate a program, or to accurately describe and assess meaning related to an observable phenomenon. With this in mind, a common mistake made by researchers is that they begin their investigations far too early, before they have thought critically about what information is required to address the research problem.

Without attending to these design issues beforehand, the overall research problem will not be adequately addressed and any conclusions drawn will run the risk of being weak and unconvincing. As a consequence, the overall validity of the study will be undermined. When a Variable’s Level of Measurement Isn’t Obvious. Effect Size Calculator for t test.

Replication-based dissertations Most quantitative dissertations, whether carried out by academics or undergraduate, master's or doctoral level students, will involve one of three types of replication, which we refer to as duplication, generalisation or extension.

Getting started with replication-based dissertations

In most cases, replication is associated with duplication. In other words, you take a piece of published research and repeat it, typically in an identical way to see if the results that you obtain are the same as the original authors. In some cases, you don't even redo the previous study, but simply request the original data that was collected, and reanalyse it to check that the original authors were accurate in their analysis techniques. However, duplication is a very narrow view of replication, and is partly what has led some journal editors to shy away from accepting replication studies into their journals. In reality, it doesn't matter what you call them. Cross Validated; Research Q & A. Sensemaking. In information science the term is most often written as "sense-making.


" In both cases, the concept has been used to bring together insights drawn from philosophy, sociology, and cognitive science (especially social psychology).
