Research Design, Data Generation, and the Research Instrument

  • W. Henning Blarr


Chapter six gives an overview of the research design (framework for the collection and analysis of data) and the relevant research methods (technique for the data collection for this study). This paper presents the earliest common research designs and chose the most appropriate ones. Then, the adequate research method and instruments were explained, followed by the operationalization of the variables, introduced in the previous chapter. After the final selection and evaluation of the data sample, this chapter ends with several tests to ensure the validity of data and constructs for the subsequent analysis.
