Qualitative Research Studies According to Polit and Beck, quantitative research is any type of research that can be explained in numeric form (2017). Utilizing many different research forms, many types of research utilizes this form of data collection to arrive at a sounder conclusion. I have chosen two different research studies that both focus on traumatic brain injuries (TBI) in veterans. Both studies that I chose were quasi-experiments. Study 1 The first study is titled Association between mild traumatic brain injury and mental health problems and self-reported cognitive dysfunction in Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans by Seal, Bertenthal, Samuelson, Manguen, Kumar & Vasterling in 2016. This study utilized the quasi-experimental research design. “Quasi-experiments, often lack randomization the signature of a true experiment. Some quasi-experiments even lack a control group” (Polit and Beck, 2017). In the instance of this particular study with TBI’s, the researchers considered the control to be the self-reported cognitive dysfunction after returning home, with or without the diagnosis of a TBI.

    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.
