3 Introduction to Educational Research
Objectives (see page 3). After reading chapter 1, you should able to: 1. List and briefly describe the major steps involved in conducting a research study. 2.Given a published article, identify and state: (a) the problem, (b) the procedures, (c) the method of analysis, and (d) the major conclusion.

4 Introduction-Objectives
3.Briefly define and state the major characteristics of the following six types of research: historical, qualitative, descriptive, correlational, casual-comparative, and experimental. 4.For each of these six types of research, briefly describe these possible research studies. Example: Experimental--A study to determine the effect of peer tutoring on the computational skill of third graders.

5 Multiple Choice Questions
1.Basic research centers on: (a) developing statistics (b) developing theory (c) application of theory (d) classroom interaction

6 2. Which of the following types of research would require the most ethical considerations?
Descriptive research Correlational research Historical research Experimental research

7 3. Basically, the scientific method involves:
recognition of the problem. formulation of the hypothesis. collecting and analyzing data. all of the above.

8 4. Research used by industry to research products is called:
action research. research and development. product initiation research. basic research.

9 5.Which research approach primarily involves the analysis of contextual data?
Qualitative Quantitative Numerical Statistical

10 6. Qualitative research is often referred to in education as:
meaningful research. ethnographic research. fast research. numerical research.

11 7. A study that seeks to compare the effect of the whole language reading approach on high and low readingachievers is called: historical. correlational. experimental. causal-comparative.

12 descriptive. quantitative. causal-comparative. correlational.
8. Studies that seek to determine if a relationship exists between two variables are called: descriptive. quantitative. causal-comparative. correlational.

13 9. A study of women in higher education is called:
historical. correlational. qualitative. descriptive.

14 10. The major difference between educational research and other research is:
the use of statistics. that more people are studied. the nature of the phenomena studied. the theory used.

15 11. Qualitative research tends to:
use statistical analysis. be based on the null hypothesis. have an hypothesis emerge as study progresses. none of the above

16 12. A qualitative approach that attempts to answer in detail the characteristics of a particular entity, phenomenon, or person is: ethnography. grounded theory. phenomenology. a case study.

17 13. Survey research is usually referred to as:
experimental research. descriptive research. causal-comparative research. qualitative research.

18 14. Most educational research is:
applied. theory based. qualitative. statistical.

19 15. The treatment or “causal” factor is referred to as the:
dependent variable. ethnographic effect. independent variable. relationship coefficient.
