Qualitative and quantitative analysis of research articles

Analysis of Quantitative Research Study

  1. In your own words, write a purpose statement for the study.

            The present study investigates the impact of classroom structure on the achievement and goal orientation for the students of mathematics. There is a constant need by eth teachers and college management in terms of evaluating the learning abilities of the students in specific subjects. The impact was investigated for Elementary school children in different structures such as continence contract situation. The elementary levels of students are the most to be judged for eth mere purpose of the study.

  1. Did the authors include research questions? If so, what were they? If not, what should the research questions for this study be?

            Yes, authors included research questions. These research questions are regarding the potential effect of classroom structure on students learning. Questions are whether classroom structure significantly affects students learning or not and whether structure should be affective. The physical structures of classrooms provides the students an ability to learn new things while on the other hand, they might be distracted from this as well.

  1. What were the research hypotheses for the study? Were these hypotheses directional or non-directional?

            The hypothesis was directional. These hypotheses indicate that classroom structures significantly affect students learning on mathematics. The direction of the hypothesis is positive. The more will be appropriate structure the more will be the learning. As the hypothesis of the study was directional which states the real time effects of classroom structures on the learning capabilities of students.

  1. How was the issue of random assignment addressed in the study? Based on your knowledge of sampling procedures, was the issue addressed adequately? If not, what should have been done differently?

            Yes, the issue addressed adequately. Random assignment select sample based on random sampling. In this approach, every subject has equal chance of being selected. In present study, subjects are sample based on random sampling with the help of random table. The study utilizes the simple random sampling for identifying the effects of structures of classroom on abilities of learning.

  1. What were the independent and dependent variables in the study?

            Appropriate classroom structure was the independent variable and classroom learning for mathematics was the dependent variable. The relationship between both variables was assessed to investigate the impact of one variable over other. The classrooms structures were the independent variables as they affect the learning abilities of the students, which are termed as the dependent variable.

  1. Were there possible confounding variables in the study? If so, what are they? How did the authors address this possibility?

            The possible cofounding variable could be the presence of motivation to learn. Even if appropriate learning structures are not available, motivation of the students, compel them to study with devotion. Therefore, it is important to consider that variable for the sake of clarity. The motivation and urge to learn comes from the family background of the students because it matters the most in their learning skills.

  1. What research design was used in the study?

            Explanatory research design was used in the study to investigate the relationship between independent and dependent variable. Explanatory research design finds the causal relationship between variables under investigation for the study.  The elaborative or explanatory style of research explains the causes or reasons for a particular issue as in the case the issue was the slow learning of the students in terms of the mathematic skills.

  1. What method of analysis was used in the study?

            Descriptive analysis was used in the study. Mean and standard deviation were analyzed and comparative analysis was used to assess the impact of variable over other. The impact was sassed to find the relationship between two variables. The mean and standard deviation are the two basic measures for central tendencies in a study that are used to assess the certain effects.  

  1. What ethical issues, if any, were encountered and how did the authors deal with them?

            Confidentiality of the respondents is an important factor that needed to be acknowledged. Respondent’s personal data should remain safe and no personal information should be publicized.  Moreover, study is conducted for academic purpose only. It has no commercial purpose. The secrecy of the data of the students and the issues faced by them during their classroom learning’s abilities in mathematics.

10. In your own words, describe the results of the study.

            Results indicate that classroom structures are important factor that need to be addressed while teaching. It has significant impact over the learning of mathematics for elementary students.  The impact was significant and structure significantly influences classroom learning for mathematics. The personal view of the study allows the experts to investigate the real causes in the slow learning abilities of the students. There are some other factors as well but which could be treated as external causes.

11. What limitations did the authors of the study acknowledge? What other    

      Limitations did you notice, if any?

            The sample size could be enhanced and In case of large sample and inclusion of more respondents lead to improvement in the results. This major limitation needed to be addressing in future research. This was the major limitation. The limitations of the study were related with the fewer number of elementary students in a particular school or college, which needs to be focused more.

12. Based on your understanding of the whole article, what was YOUR final “take-away” message from this study?

            It is utmost important to consider learning oriented classroom structure. If classroom lacks learning oriented environment, it will definitely affect the learning of students in mathematics for the sake of improvement in          academic grading. The learning capabilities of the elementary students needed to be enhanced but with the application of more advanced scheme of studies as well as sound infrastructures.

II. Analysis of Qualitative Research Study

 

  1. What was the central phenomenon of the study? What emerged as the central question of the study as the data were analyzed?

            The central phenomenon of the study is to assess the level of trust between mothers of children with disabilities and school principles.

The central thought of the study is related with the reduced capabilities of the students in learning mathematics.

  1. How did the authors recruit participants for their study? What was the rationale for their recruiting methods?

            The mothers with disable children were approached to recruit the desired level of participants for the study. It was necessary to approach mothers with disabilities so that appropriate sampling would be attained. Lack of inappropriate sampling could affect the results of the study. The reason for hiring the disabled parents or mothers of the children was for identification of issues.

  1. What type or types of data were collected? What techniques were used to collect the data?

            Primary data was collected to get latest and updated responses. For that purpose, interview techniques were employed. Interviews were conducted to assess the relevant information for the understanding of family professional relationship and between mothers and schoolteachers. The primary data could affect the study or research in terms of further examination of the samples. It is also helpful in the determining the real influences of the factors.

  1. Describe the procedures that were used to analyze the data.

            Interview techniques were used with structured questions to assess personal and professional principle attributes as well as principles action within education system of school. Therefore, these procedures were analyzed to assess the problem under investigation. The interview is considered as a direct mean of getting the real information from the respondents.

  1. What kind of format was used to present the results of the data analysis (e.g., table, graph, concept map).

            Descriptive analysis with tables was used in the paper to assess and present findings for the study. This is appropriate method for qualitative research study and facilitates qualitative research process for the study. The tables and charts are helpful for the reader to get the real insight about the study and methods utilized in the research.
