How should your research question look like if your state of prior theory and research is nascent? (Nascent theory) Opend-ended inquiry about phenomenon of interest
How should your research question look like if your state of prior theory and research is intermediate? (Intermediate theory) Proposed relationship between new and established constructs
How should your research question look like if your state of prior theory and research is mature? (Mature theory) Focused hypotheses relating existing constructs
What data should be collected if your state of prior theory and research is nascent? (Nascent theory) Qualitative data
What data should be collected if your state of prior theory and research is intermediate? (Intermediate theory) both qualitative and quantitative data
What data should be collected if your state of prior theory and research is mature? (Mature theory) Quantitative data
What methods for collecting data should be applied when your state of prior theory and research is nascent? (Nascent theory) Interviews, observations
What methods for collecting data should be applied when your state of prior theory and research is intermediate? (Intermediate theory) Interviews, observations, surveys
What methods for collecting data should be applied when your state of prior theory and research is mature? (Mature theory) Surveys, interviews, field studies
The three classes of research methods are... - Descriptive research - Correlation research - Experimental research
What is a way of fixing the imperfection problem of all methods? Mixed-methods (more than one method to allow for triangulation)
What is the "sample"? Group of people you are observing
What characteristics should your sample have? Validity and representativeness
What is the "population"? All the people you could have (theoretically) worked with --> Sample is the representative of population
What does "proof-of-concept" mean? That you pick a sample that shows what you want to obseerve
What are the 2 sampling techniques? Probability sampling Non-probability sampling
What characteristic does Probability Sampling have? Each member of population has equal probability of being selected
What characteristic does Non-Probability Sampling have? The chance of each unit being selected is unknown or predefined
Probability Sampling can be parted into three special techniques, which are ... - Random sampling - Stratified sampling (population segmented in subgroups and then radomly selcted) - Cluster sampling (units are clustered in hierarchical stages and then selection in each stage)
Non-Probability Sampling can be parted into five special techniques, which are ... - Convenience sampling - Quota sampling - Snowball sampling - Judgement sampling - Theoretical sampling
When respondents are selected in part or in whole at the convenience of the researcher, this method is called... Convenience Sampling
A convenience sample, with effort made to ensure a certain distribution of demograpic variables is called... Quota Sampling
A sampling technique emplyed to reach hard-to-reach populations and subgroups is called... Snowball sampling
When the researcher uses his/her judgement to select the sample, this technique is called... Judgement Sampling
The technique where only extreme or specific cases are selected is called... Theoretical Sampling
