Overview: Quantitative research methods use numeric data to answer questions. They employ such quantitative measures as frequencies, means, correlations, and statistical tests. In contrast, qualitative research employs words to answer questions. Qualitative research investigates the quality of relationships, activities, situations, and materials. In this module/week, we will distinguish between the two methods of research and investigate the theoretical foundations of qualitative research for education.
Task: Using the “Bloom’s Taxonomy Applied to Questioning” chart, create 2 questions for each of the chapters assigned for reading this week. Maximize your questioning techniques by employing all 5 levels of questioning. The purpose of this forum is to help you choose what was important in each chapter so that you can spur your classmates onto higher learning through their replies. Make sure you have a heading for each set of questions (i.e., Chapter 1 Questions, Chapter 2 Questions, APA Chapter 3 Questions).
