Theoretical framework Theoretical framework Presentation Transcript

  • Theories are constructed in order to explain, predict and master phenomena (e.g. relationships, events, or the behavior). In many instances we are constructing models of reality. A theory makes generalizations about observations and consists of an interrelated, coherent set of ideas and models.
  • The theoretical framework of the study is a structure that can hold or support a theory of a research work. It presents the theory which explains why the problem under study exists. Thus, the theoretical framework is but a theory that serves as a basis for conducting research.
  • It helps the researcher see clearly the variables of the study; It can provide him with a general framework for data analysis; It is essential in preparing a research proposal using descriptive and experimental methods Purpose:
  • Formulating a Theoretical Framework Authoritative theories must be presented Identify the important concepts Always mention the theory that will be utilized; By giving assumptions , defining key terms and concepts, identifying the variables, and stating the relationship of the hypothesized variables.
  • ASSUMPTIONS Are statements related to the problem Provide a basis to develop theories Influence the development and implement of research process Butt
  • Statements that are often taken for granted or CONSIDERED true, even though they have not been scientifically tested. Principles that are accepted as being true based on logic or reasons, but without proof or verification.
