approach to provide credibility to the study. Also, researchers from both types of research present the findings from the perspective of those being researched often including excepts from the interviews or stories told by the participants to a more personal perspective to the results. While both methods of research have similarities, they also have some differences. Ethnography focuses on one aspect or specific behavior within a specific population. It usually isa behavior that is related to cultural or social norms. These researchers conduct research into the behavior before beginning the study to better understand what it is they are researching to give them directionality in how to proceed and how to create a more focused subject matter. Onthe other hand, grounded theory utilizes a broader approach analyzing every possible answer asto why a certain behavior occurs not just cultural or social norms. Researchers then code the information and compare all the data to develop a final concept to provide an explanation of the studied behavior. While it does sometimes utilize experts from interviews like ethnography, it is not to add color but to provide evidence of the findings. Inc, S. (2017).

Contrast the levels of control applied to each.Experimental researchis when a researcher can provide a convincing evidence for cause-and-effect relationship. This is done by demonstrating that manipulations of at least one variable, called the treatment or independent variable, produce different outcomes in another variable called the dependent variable, (Grove, Gray & Burns, 2014). For an experimental research, the researcher needs a control group and an experimental group, and one specific variable that can easily be manipulated to validate the
experiment. The control group do not receive the intervention, treatment, or
