Theoretical Framework & Hypothesis DevelopmentChapter 5 Theoretical Framework & Hypothesis Development 1 © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
Theoretical frameworkFoundation deductive research project! Deductive research: moving from the general (a theory) to the specific (observations). © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
Theoretical FrameworkA theoretical framework represents your beliefs on how certain phenomena (or variables or concepts) are related to each other (a model) and an explanation on why you believe that these variables are associated to each other (a theory). © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
Theoretical frameworkBasic steps: Identify and label the variables correctly State the relationships among the variables: formulate hypotheses Explain how or why you expect these relationships © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
© 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. www.wiley.com/college/sekaranVariable Any concept or construct that varies or changes in value Main types of variables: Dependent variable Independent variable Moderating variable Mediating variable © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.
(In)dependent variablesDependent variable (DV) Is of primary interest to the researcher. The goal of the research project is to understand, predict or explain the variability of this variable. Independent variable (IV) Influences the DV in either positive or negative way. The variance in the DV is accounted for by the IV. © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Moderators Moderating variableModerator is qualitative (e.g., gender, race, class) or quantitative (e.g., level of reward) variable that affects the direction and/or strength of relation between independent and dependent variable.

© 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd. www.wiley.com/college/sekaranHypothesis A proposition that is empirically testable. It is an empirical statement concerned with the relationship among variables. Good hypothesis: Must be adequate for its purpose Must be testable Must be better than its rivals Can be: Directional Non-directional © 2012 John Wiley & Sons Ltd.

Specifying a Purpose, Research Questions or Hypothesis
Chapter 1 Science and the Scientific Approach. Science and Common Sense Science and common sense differ sharply in five ways. These disagreements revolve.
The Scientific Method n See the problem n Look for the relevant variables n Construct a hypothesis, if possible n Create a research design n Collect data.
Specifying a Purpose and Research Questions or Hypotheses
Formulating the Research Design In this topic we have discussed about various research strategies, for example; Action Research which focuses on close.
