1. Descriptive quantitative approach main focus is being observational and the variables are not controlled. The researchers do not start with a hypothesis but develops on throughout the data collecting process and from there, it allows the researchers to develop one according to how the data is going. In this approach, it can be conducted through a focus group and sample the different results. 2. Narrative qualitative approach is through conducting interviews and surveys. It is a way of compiling data information to describe the culture; develop a better understanding about their beliefs and motivations. These interviews can be done through face-to-face or on the phone. Ideally, researchers would conduct interviews face-to-face to observe their body language if participants are telling the truth or not. 2. Correlational quantitative approach is by exploring and observing relationships amongst different population and that variables are not controlled. Utilizing statistical analysis would create some of the data that is being processed and being used therefore, if the amount of data being collected can correlate to other subjected data that is being tested as well. 3. Focus group is the most commonly used qualitative research methods is data collection. It entails a limited number of participants that has the characteristics of the group that you are trying to conduct research on. The main reason of a focus group is to determine the why, what and how questions. Biggest advantage of focus groups is it can be conducted through online survey and that just in person. 3.

    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.
