Research Methods (STA630)
Due date: May 24th, 2018
Topic: Classification of Research
Objective of the activity
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
UNICEF (United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund) aims to ensure the world, a safe and inclusive place to nurture the children. It works to develop the policies and services to guard their rights. There are millions of severe cases where a child becomes the victim of several types of violence, abuse, bullying, and exploitation etc. There is an utmost need to modify the current rules and regulations to ensure child protection in every aspect. Children are more vulnerable to such exploitations (based on their gender, race, ethnicity or other socio-economic status). Children having disabilities, are orphans, or having single parent, are poor or belongs to the minorities, are at additional risks which make them suffer (mentally, physically, psychologically) for the rest of their lives.
UNICEF is therefore working on various projects to strengthen the child protection system especially in Pakistan. There is sufficient evidence of the latest wave of child abuse in Pakistan which raised several questions regarding prevention of exploitation and abuse in one way or the other.
In Pakistan, there are various working groups, NGOs, and other public or private institutions to work on child protection system. For this purpose, several research teams were organized by Federal Bureau of Statistics. One of them was under the supervision of Mr. Babar Armani, Deputy Director, to do research on the above-mentioned issue in the districts of upper Punjab. Mr. Babar Armani briefed his research team about the said research project. After working of two months, the research team submitted the research proposal. In research design, it was mentioned that it will be a quantitative study and will specifically focused on the single parents of victimized children in the districts of upper Punjab. This research will be conducted for a thoughtful analysis over regular time intervals.
Point of Discussion:
After reading the above-mentioned case, you are advised to identify the type of research based on “purpose of doing research”. Discuss your stance with sound justifications.
Note: For acquiring the relevant knowledge, do not rely only on handouts but watch the course video lectures and read additional material available online or in any other mode.

Justify please.

Pleasse shre Gdb solution

It is Explanatory research.
We have usually experienced Explanatory research after Exploratory research and Descriptive research respectively.
Exploratory research is usually about to explore new knowledge which we dont know before. then comes descriptive research
which is conducted about something to get increased our knowledge about it or to describe more about that thing or topic.
after these Explanatory research is conducted which is purely based on "why". In easy words explanatory research is conducted
to know the causes of some phenomenon or case. In explanatory research we connect the ideas to understand the cause and effects.

Researcher tries to find out the reasons and causes behind a phenomenon or case.
Here is a common example to elaborate these three types.

  • In a school examination has been held. (this is exploratory research.)
  • 36 students failed to pass the examination out of 1000. ( this is descriptive research because it is telling more about it )
  • 36 students failed due to lack of attention in study because they are interested in sports rather than study.

             ( this is explanatory research as it is explaining the reason and answering the question of "why")
Now comes to given case. as the research going to conduct in pakistan by UNICEF is based on the purpose to find out about
the causes of a specific case ( about children abuses and exploitation). so it is explanatory research.
Thank you.
