Research Designs Associated with Quantitative and Qualitative ResearchResearch designs are the specific procedures involved in the research process: data collection, dataanalysis, and report writing. The figure illustrates how the steps in the research process relate toquantitative and qualitative research and combined research, and advances eight different researchdesigns, used by educational and social researchers.Experimental DesignsSome quantitative researchers seek to test whether an educational practice or idea makes a differencefor individuals. Experimental research procedures are ideally suited for this study.Experimental designs(also called intervention studies or group comparison studies) are procedures in quantitative research inwhich the investigator determines whether an activity or materials make a difference in results forparticipants. You assess this impact by giving one group one set of activities (called anintervention) andwithholding the set from another group.Correlational DesignsIn some studies, you may be unable to provide an intervention or to assign individuals to groups.Moreover, you focus more on examining the association or relation of one or more variables than intesting the impact of activities or materials.Correlational designsare procedures in quantitative researchin which investigators measure the degree of association (or relation) between two or more variables
