The questionnaire was designed in lined with the objectives of the study. It has sections, with each section eliciting information on the research question. The questionnaire has first introductory part, where the researcher introduces herself to her respondents, instructing them on what is expected of them and how to answer the questions. Section “A” of the questionnaire has to do with the socio-demographic data of the respondents. Section “B” was designed to initiate information on research questions number one and correspondingly section “C” “D” and “E” taking care of research questions 2,3, and 4.
The research question of my lab report that I have set is ‘What is the relationship between handedness and study habits?’ To create a plan and an experiment, research was needed in handedness. The first part of the research was about the definition of handedness, then the causation of handedness, and consequences of handedness. To meet my first criteria of success, I included much more than three research papers as a reference. Moreover, through research I found experiments about people and handedness, which gave me ideas of how my experiment is going to be. However, as I planned for the experiment, my research question changed.
There shall be a literature of different scholars work on related topics, in order to frame issues for the study and to avoid redundant effort. Different documents and files on challenges and prospects of social integration of refugees and asylum seekers will be collected from BAMF, Pro Asyl, Diakonie, Caritas, UNHCR and shall be explored. On the basis of the review of literature and document reading, basic points to be raised in the interview and FGD will be identified; and this shall be done to sample population that will be selected from refugee and asylum seeker communities. 1.10.5 Ethical Consideration Ethics in research is concerned primarily with the interaction between the researcher and the people involved in the study. The researcher is expected to explicitly consider the needs and concerns of people involve in the study.
One issue that is facing the CJ system is the type of interview style that is most effective. There are several different types of style such a Reid Technique, Peace Method, and Kinesics, and etc. Kinesiology has altered he way CJ personal interview/interrogate potential suspects. There is a specific type of interrogating process called the Kinesics Interview which involves two phase coin by author Stan B. Walter called “Practical Kinesics” and “Interrogation Phase” Walters describes for fundamental stages of the interview (1) orientation, (2) narration, (3) cross-examination, and resolution (Id. A 25-29) The analysis phase pertains that the interviewer executes various techniques to extract whether or no he interviewee is being honest.
The chapter continues with a discussion about sampling, recruitment and data collection. The pilot study and the interviews are then discussed followed by the data analysis process. Finally the chapter concludes with a discussion on rigor and how it was
The data was then analyzed with focus on detailed narratives that explore patterns of the responses from the interviews. The patterns were then used to identify specific themes that were necessary to address the research questions qualitative content analysis results in unique themes that illustrate the range of the meanings of particular texts or concepts (Vaismoradi et al., 2013). The first step in the qualitative content analysis was preparing the data. The narrative data from interviews were transformed into written text before analysis starts. When transcribing interviews, all the questions of the interviewer were
The most common type of interview for qualitative research is the in-depth semi-structured interview. As Dornyei (2007) argued a semi-structured interview is a balance between a structured interview in which the interview protocol is strictly attached to and an open interview that is guided by broad topics. A semi-structured interview permits both the researcher and the participant to explore specific topics in greater depth. Furthermore, it allows for flexibility in the manner and sequence of the questions. Dornyei (2007) stated that a semi-structured interview is apt when the researcher has sufficient knowledge of the phenomenon to develop questions in advance.
3.3.7 Semi – structured interviews This interview method of research is used to gather focused, qualitative textual data. A semi structured interview is open-ended, allowing new ideas to be freely exercised by the researcher during the interview process as a result of what the interviewee says. The interviewer in a semi-structured interview generally has a framework of themes to be explored. (Wikipedia, n.d) A semi- structured interview is a meeting in which the interviewer does not strictly follow a formalized list of questions. They will ask more open ended questions, allowing for a discussion with the interviewee rather than a straightforward question and answer format.
By definition a case study is a form of qualitative descriptive research that is used to look at individuals, a small group of participants, or a group as a whole. Researchers can collect data from participants in the study and using participant direct observations, interviews, protocols, tests, examinations of records, and collections of writing samples (CSU). A different take on case studies is that a case study should be defined as a research strategy, and is used to conclude investigation on a problem within the real world. Case study research can have single and multiple case studies and can include quantitative evidence, which primarily uses exploratory research and is used to gain an understanding, which relies on multiple sources of evidence and prior knowledge of the subject (Wyse). Case studies may be prospective, and cases fitting the investigation are included, as they become known to the report.
Interview is often question-based, with the question being asked by the interviewer and responses must be as explicit and stated clearly and in detail. There are various types of interview but in this study the researcher used Informal Conversational or in-depth unstructured interview. In this type of interview the questions emerge from the immediate context and are asked in the natural setting of behaviour. The questions were modified and changed according to the participants responses. It provides depth knowledge to the investigator to talk about the subject in terms of their own way.
