Research Design & Methodology

3.0 Introduction Research is the study of materials, sources and data in order to get conclusions. Getting the research design right is the first step towards organized research, which is more likely to be good research. Research design provides the structure of the research and links all of the elements of the research together. It provides the researcher the opportunity to carefully consider research and to plan the way in which they will approach the research. In this regard Kerlinger (1983) has very rightly remarked: “Research design sets up the framework for 'adequate' tests of the relations among variables. Design tells us, in a sense, what observations to make, how to make them, and how

Quantitative survey research seeks to find answers to question through the analysis of variable relationships (Best and Khan, 1995). In the present study researcher studies the attitude of secondary school teachers towards continuous and comprehensive evaluation in Agra Division. Therefore, the descriptive research is the most appropriate research method for the present study.

3.10 Conclusion
The review of the research helps a researcher in identifying research trends and gaps. Besides this, the researcher gets an opportunity to look at various designs of the studies employed by the earlier researchers. Before contemplating any research design for one’s own study, the researcher critically analyses the other research design employed by earlier investigators. This helps him to understand the merits and limitations of these designs. It is an established fact that the problem chosen by the researcher determines adequacy of a specific research design. Since, research design is a blue print of ensuing research programme. Therefore, a researcher has to undertake an extraordinary care during the selection of appropriate research
