To familiarize the students with classification of research

Learning outcome

After attempting this GDB, students will be able to analyze different aspects of classification of research.


The premise

There is no doubt that Middle East is a challenging place for working women.  Mr. Ali is working in Research and Development (R&D) department of a UN (United Nations) in Middle East region. He was assigned to explore why the culture of women empowerment is deteriorating in the region. For this purpose, he conducted focus group discussion with 10 working women for refining the interviews. After that, he interviewed 50 informants (women); working at managerial positions and analyzed the interviews afterwards. The results of the data depicted that circumstances for working women are better than past but still male chauvinism is prevailing in the organizations; even multinational companies are still unable to eradicate this belief.

Point of Discussion:

In the light of above case, classify the study done on the basis of use and the time dimension in Research. Provide sound justification of each stance

Dear Students Don’t wait for solution post your problems here and discuss ... after discussion a perfect solution will come in a result. So, Start it now, replies here give your comments according to your knowledge and understandings....

on the basis of uses the study is basic or applied? because it shows that it is the research for the sake of research so it could be basic, but in applied research we also find the reasons of the problems. 

Mr. Ali uses qualitative way

And time of dimension is cross-sectional research 

check handouts page no 25

In terms of time dimensional research 
It can be categorized as Cross-Sectional Research:-

particular class of women holding particular position

In terms of the basis of use research 
It can be categorized as Applied Research:-

Limited class of women holding particular position

i agreed with this commnt


according to the basis of use it is applied research and according to time dimension it is cross sectional study what is your openion?

yes sir the above statement is right , but i think according to the use of research we have two types of researches quantitative and Qualitative, and in this case Mr.Ali uses qualitative technique, because he used focus group discussion for his results ..

No sir Qualitative and quantitative are techniques used to collect data but in GDB the question is classify this research on basis of The Use Of Research (See page 12 of handout) and i think this is APPLIED RESEARCH on basis of use bcoz we have given a special case in GDB and Applied research is also done for solve specific task..

Final solution:

In scenario of time dimension Mr. Ali using cross-sectional research technique.

In scenario of Use of research Mr. Ali using Applied research technique. 

Kindly Acknowledge if correct
