Question Description

I’m working on a psychology discussion question and need support to help me understand better.

Only 50 word minimum per response/feedback.


First Discussion

According to Creswell and Creswell (2017), a purpose statement is a part of a research introduction that explains why the study is being conducted, the major idea, and what accomplishments are expected, this could be done in one or several sentences that is easily identifiable. With qualitative purpose statements, the central phenomenon is introduced as well as the participants and the research site (Creswell & Creswell, 2017). In terms of quantitative purpose statements, they focus more on the variables and constructs (independent, intervening, mediating, moderating, or dependent), and also includes the participants and research site (Creswell & Creswell, 2017). Mixed methods purpose statements include the main intent of the study, a brief summary of both the quantitative and qualitative aspects, and the reasoning for using both quantitative and qualitative strands in the research study (Creswell & Creswell, 2017). It was interesting to learn that quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods purpose statements differ so much with what is included, I had not thought of that before. The more I learn about the differences between the three of them, the more I question which type of research study I would conduct.


Second discussion

Using the deficiency model for writing research introductions the purpose statement is a crucial thing to have when writing an introduction paper. A quality purpose statement should address the main components such as who are the main characters, what their main idea is, supporting details to support those ideas. After finishing the readings this week, I thought that the most interesting idea or plot that I took away was that a research matrix or study can be important in the sense of understanding the content of the study before supporting it with details.
