Chapter II REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE AND STUDIES By Melinda M. PiamonteMAED-Educational Management
Two Major Parts of Review of Related Literature• Conceptual Literature• Research Literature
Conceptual Literature• It contains literature coming from books, journalism, and other forms of material, concerning or relevant to the study, but are data-free or non – empirical material, coming from both foreign and local sources.
Research Literature• These are empirically – based, like scientific paper, theses, and dissertations, both published and unpublished, coming from local and foreign sources.
Purpose of Review of Related Literature It gives researcher several ideas on how to select and formulate his own research problem. It helps the researcher identify studies that have been done related to the topic he is interested in. It avoids possible duplication of similar studies. It guides the researcher on the possible theoretical framework he can use for his current study.
It gives direction to the researcher on how he will create his own conceptual framework. It allows the researcher to browse several kinds of research designs, sampling techniques, statistical procedures, questionnaires and processes of presenting, analyzing , and interpreting data, from where he could base his own choice for his paper. It gives a picture of a comparative analysis between variables used in reviewed materials and those used in the current study.
Bases for a Good Review of Related LiteratureThe review material must be current.Literature and studies reviewed must be relevant to the study.Findings or result of reviewed study should be objective and free of biases.
The data used in the reviewed materials should be scrutinized in terms of sampling technique used to ensure that generalizations are based on normal population.Reviewed materials related to the current study should be enough to establish a strong and viable trending of result.
