Week 5 main discussion post Quantitative Research Design Quantitative research is the research of phenomena that involves precise measurement and quantitative measures in a controlled design (Polit & Beck, 2017) . Phenomena can have many causes, and with causes, effects occur. There are three types of designs, and they are experimental, non-experimental and Quasi-experimental. Experimental design or randomized controlled trial (RCT) is where researchers are active participants, not passive observers. They isolate the phenomena and control the condition in which it took place. Non-experimental research is when the experiment lacks manipulation of the phenomena, and the conditions are random, not controlled. Quasi-experimental are controlled experiments without randomization meaning they may have an intervention, but it may lack randomization and a control group (Polit & Beck, 2017) . Quasi-experimentation is practical and because it lacks randomization people are more willing to participate in these type of studies. Experimental research designs are considered to be reliable and accurate in producing cause and effects. Non-experimental research design doesn't allow for manipulation of the variable and is more observable (Polit & Beck, 2017) . Randomization or random assignment or random allocation is where participants are assigned to treatments conditions randomly instead of systemic crating equal chances of being assigned to any of the groups (Polit & Beck, 2017) . Article 1 The first article that I reviewed was called “ Burden and related factors in caregivers of young adults presenting bipolar and unipolar mood disorder”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
