Hernandez, Perez, & Rangel (2016) defined research methodology as a highly intellectual activity that deals with the manner in which data is collected, analyzed and interpreted for a particular investigation. Tan (2012) similarly defined research methodology as one that shall include specification of the research design, method of data collection and method of data analysis. With these definitions, the research team developed an overview of the research process; where the research design for each research method shall include the sampling, data collection protocol as well as the data analysis techniques.
