In this research study descriptive and empirical research approach have been follow because of the following
Methodology is a body of knowledge that enables researchers to explain and analyze methods – indicating their limitations and resources, identifying their presuppositions and consequences, and relating their potentialities to research advances (Miller 1983). Moreover, it underpins the types of questions that can be addressed and the nature of the evidence that is generated (Clark et al. 1984). Figure 1.0.1 below illustrates different layers and approaches that are available and must be consistently employed when conducting a research. In accordance with the research onion, prior data collection and analysis techniques can be determined, considerations on several issues must be completed.
This study employs survey technique as a tool to conduct a quantitative study. In developing questionnaire I got help from my supervisor and literature review especially Kittipong (2005) and Donald Clark (2010). Self-administered questionnaire was developed and sent to selected sample via email and by hand with respect to approach and convenience. The questionnaire was divided into thre...
In this chapter, the objectives set for this survey was analyzed in more details to gather data more effectively and efficiently. Emphasis has been given to the research design and have shown its importance. Moreover, large of emphasis has been given to sampling Methods, data collection which states why questionnaire has been used and through the pilot study it has stated clearly who was the one who questionnaire has been distributed first and what respond have been receive from the respondent. The techniques as described in this chapter have been of great importance in achieving the objectives of the study. The next chapter deals with the results discussion and interpretation of findings.
This chapter describes the overall research methodology of the study. It states the choice of and arguments for selecting the research methods and strategies for the study. The chapter presents the working definition of the key terms, population, research area, and other related issues. It also presents the statistical tools and techniques that are used in the data analysis and presentation. The validity and reliability of the research method employed in the study are exhibited. The key concepts and variables used in the thesis and the measures used to operationalize these concepts and variables are discussed in detail.
In this chapter, the study type, sample techniques and sample selection were explained. The sample size was defined; questionnaire design, questionnaire administration, data analysis, reliability and validity were defined and discussed. In the following chapter, results will be presented and discussed. Pie charts, bar graphs and tables will also be used.
Desjardins (2010) states a theoretical framework is a logically structured representation of the concepts, variables, and relationships involved in a specific study with the purpose of clearly identifying what will be explored, examined, measured or described. The theoretical framework introduces and describes the theory that clarifies the reason for the research problem. The information found in the theoretical framework expresses to the reader why the research problem was chosen, provides a clear hypothesis and gives a description of the theory. In short, the theoretical framework serves as a guide to why the research problem is significant and how the research problem will be investigated.
Quantitative method will be used in this research to collect the related data. “The meaning of quantitative is something that can be calculated, it is applied in the statistical analysis due to ability to provide digit. The qualitative method is always used in big size of survey” (AIU, 2012). Since the quantitative data is full with number, it is not di...
This chapter explains on the research methodology that being used for this study. In order to achieve the objective of the study, methodology acts as a guideline for conducting a research. Research methodology is a systematic way to solve the research problem ( Rajasekar et al., 2006). In this chapter, there are several part that have been prioritize which is premilinary stage, collecting data, analyzing data, summarize data and write up research’s finding.
This chapter aims to explain the research methodology carried out throughout the research study. Firstly the selected research design is defined and described. This is followed by an explanation of the research approach and subject paradigm chosen for the research. Subsequently, this chapter focuses on describing the secondary data methodology used in the literature review of the research. Later, the information regarding to the primary data methodology is given. This section explicates the reasons behind the selection of a quantitative approach as well as the instrument employed to collect the data. In addition the questions included in the questionnaire are explained and pre-tested. Lastly the sampling method is also described in conjunction with the data analysis process and the ethical standards of the research study.
The possible types of data and resources are presented in the problem statement concerning the various research stages. According to Creswell (2013) interviews, developing surveys, measuring, and using the observation methods are important to the literature review of this study.
