RES 711 WEEK 6 Quantitative Methods

The most common quantitative research designs in social science research include:

  • Experimental
  • Quasi-Experimental
  • Ex-Post Facto
  • Descriptive

Each design type involves studying a problem in which the interactions between variables are of interest. What determines the particular design is what interactions are examined between the variables.

Complete the Quantitative Research Methods Matrix according to the following guidelines:

  1. List the primary characteristics of each design
  2. Locate a current peer-reviewed article (within the past  5 years) in your field that demonstrates each quantitative research method
  3. Explain the following for each article:
    1. The problem investigated
    2. How the sample was selected
    3. How variables were defined and measured
    4. How data were collected and analyzed
    5. The key findings
    6. The generalizability of the findings

Format your matrix consistent with APA guidelines. Click the Assignment Files tab to submit your assignment
