  • The Advanced Learner’s Dictionary of Current English lays down the meaning of research as “a careful investigation or inquiry specially through search for new facts in any branch of knowledge.”
  • (studies with this object in view are termed as exploratory or formulative research studies).(studies with this object in view are known as descriptive research studies).(studies with this object in view are known as diagnostic research studies).(such studies are known as hypothesis-testing research studies).
  • A research design provides a road map for the entire project.A blueprint for the collection, measurement, analysis and interpretation of data.The first step is deciding upon a topic.How do you decide upon a research topic
  • , thereby making research as efficient as possible 5. , keeping in view the objective of the research and the availability of staff, time and money and Research design stands for advance planning of the methods to be adopted for collecting the relevant data and the techniques to be used in their analysis6. Such a design can even be given to others for their comments and critical evaluation.
  • Important Concepts Related To Research Design
  • 4. And to link knowledge and action in social transformation. 5. , uncover information needs and is A very flexible, open-ended process.
  • 6. Can be used for profiling, defining, segmentation, estimating, predicting, and examining associative relationships.7. . Most practical in marketing to talk about associations or impact of one variable on another.
  • 10. a.k.a.,
  • The effect of the treatment would be equal to the level of the phenomenon after the treatment minus the level of the phenomenon before the treatment.
  • Treatment impact is assessed by subtracting the value of the dependent variable in the control area from its value in the test area
  • The treatment effect is determined by subtracting the change in the dependent variable in the control area from the change in the dependent variable in test area.
  • experiments are useful for testing the results gained by a series of qualitative experiments, leading to a final answer, and a narrowing down of possible directions for follow up research to take.Quantitative research design also tends to generate only proved or unproven results, with there being very little room for grey areas and uncertainty. For the social sciences, education, anthropology and psychology, human nature is a lot more complex than just a simple yes or no response.

    6. 6.  “ Research design is the arrangement of conditions for collection and analysis of data in a manner that aims to combine relevance to the research purpose with economy in procedure.” Research design involves specifying your philosophical assumptions, research method, which data collection techniques you will use.4/16/2013 6

    11. 11. Variable: A concept which can take on different quantitative values is called a variable. Dependent variable: If one variable depends upon or is a consequence of the other variable, is termed as dependent variable.4/16/2013 11
    12. 12. Extraneous variable: Independent variables that are not related to the purpose of the study, but may affect the dependent variable .Confounded Relationship: When dependent variable is influenced by the extraneous variables.4/16/2013 12
    13. 13. Research Hypothesis: When a prediction is to be tested by scientific methods it is termed as research hypothesis.Experimental Hypothesis testing research: Research in which independent variable is manipulated.Non-Experimental Hypothesis testing research: Research in which independent variable is not manipulated4/16/2013 13
    14. 14. Control Group: When a group is exposed to usual conditions, it is termed as control group.Experimental Group: When a group is exposed to some novel/special conditions, it is termed as experimental group.Treatments: The different conditions under which experimental and control groups are put are usually referred as treatments.4/16/2013 14
    15. 15. 1. Basic Goal of research: To produce new knowledge including discovery of relationships; create capacity to predict, control, manipulate.2. Applied (policy-useful) Goal of the research: Produce the information necessary to help a policy-maker eliminate or alleviate a social problem3. Evaluation (assessment-appraisal) Goal of the Research: To provide an accurate account of the impact of a treatment program applied to a social problem.4/16/2013 15
    16. 16. 4. Action oriented (critical) Goal of the Research: To dig beneath the surface of historically specific social structures that reproduce oppression and other problems in society. 5.

    21. 21. Informal experimental designs: (i) Before-and-after without control design. (ii) After-only with control design. (iii) Before-and-after with control design Formal experimental designs: (i) Completely randomized design (C.R. Design). (ii) Randomized block design (R.B. Design). (iii) Latin square design (L.S. Design). (iv) Factorial designs.4/16/2013 21
    22. 22. In such a design a single test group or area is selected and the dependent variable is measured before the introduction of the treatment. The treatment is then introduced and the dependent variable is measured again after the treatment has been introduced. The design can be represented thus:Test area:Level of phenomenon Treatment introduced Level of phenomenon before treatment (X) after treatment(Y)Treatment Effect = (Y)-(X)4/16/2013 22
    23. 23. In this design two groups or areas (test area and control area) are selected and the treatment is introduced into the test area only. The dependent variable is then measured in both the areas at the same time. This can be exhibited in the following form:Test area: Treatment introduced Level of phenomenon afterControl area treatment (Y) Level of phenomenon Without treatment (Z) Treatment Effect = (Y) – (Z)4/16/2013 23
    24. 24. In this design two areas are selected and the dependent variable is measured in both the areas for an identical time-period before the treatment. The treatment is then introduced into the test area only, and the dependent variable is measured in both for an identical time-period after the introduction of the treatment.4/16/2013 24
    25. 25. This design can be shown in this way: Time Period I Time Period II TreatmentTest Area: Level of phenomenon Level of phenomenon after before Treatment (X) introduced Treatment (Y)Control Area: Level of phenomenon Level of phenomenon without without Treatment (A) Treatment (Z)Treatment Effect = (Y – X) – (Z – A)4/16/2013 25
