design that you are proposing•State your rationale for studying the Research Problem with a QUANTITATIVE RESEARCH METHODOLOGY.•State your study’s RESEARCH DESIGN (non-experimental, experimental, quasi-experimental, etc.), and the rationale for selectingthat design (why the design is appropriate for answering the Research Question).•Briefly describe the data collection, statistical models, and analysis that will be used to conduct the study.• Use current (within 5-7 years), scholarly, PRIMARY resources to support statements.• Use APA style in citing all resourcesPer Creswell (2013), the quantitative methodology is one where the researcher uses concepts and ideas to develop an understanding and obtain necessary information to find the answers to the research questions. By making this approach apparent, the researcher can utilizethe cause and effect thinking, specific variables, hypothesis questions, the usage of measurements and observations, and the ability to test the theories of such specific research studies (p. 18). The quantitative approach manipulates and maneuvers the probe of the data on predetermined instruments that yield the statistical data. By analyzing the critical aspects of the research, the gaining of the verbal input from the autistic students will be challenging as most of the participants maybe non-verbal and have limited cognitive skills.The quantitative research will find the relationships between and among the independent and dependent variables which may reflect the values of the teacher’s ability to teach the music program to the students (Patton, 2002, Creswell, 2013). By accumulating the data willbe significant when the statistics are used to analyze the music program. The music research looks for verification of the initial hypothesis as in this case we will be using experimental designs which is an attempt to determine the cause and effect relationships of the groups involved in the study. By manipulating the independent variables as it measures the dependent variables, it reflects that the brain is affected by the music and such musical educational therapy does boost the memory in the classroom environment (Cozby & Bates, 2013). The research question implies a cause and effect relationship by using random selection, coupled with the random assignment to the conditions of the two control conditions that coincide with a valid experiment (Leedy & Ormrod, 2016).One unique feature of this kind of research activity encourages and acknowledges that there may be a minimal risk to the study as these actions towards the autistic children are not increased as it would be anything else the students may encounter daily (Cozby & Bates, 2013).There should be an increase in safeguarding the students to enable IRB approval. Since the research on the autistic children reflects perception, cognition, and test development, there is a need to be awarethat there may be some or no manipulation of the participant’s behaviorand the research will not involve stress to the children (Leedy & Ormrod, 2016).
