There is likely no concrete support with a qualitative research. • What are your hypotheses? How would you test them? There is no hypothesis; however the research question can be tested through observation.
Also, the information can be anonymous, which is helpful when dealing with sensitive subjects in which it might be more difficult to get reliable answers in a qualitative study. Cause and effect relationships can be tested.
An example of research question might be "Is there a difference in the grade point average of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors?" The grade point average is continuous, and the class level is categorical.
This question is confusing, so let me tell you what I think of all the possible answers. The alternative hypothesis is the one that the researcher thinks might be true and is testing to see if it is true.
Finding a research question involves knowing the literature on the topic. There you will learn the variables that have already been tested on your topic and what other authors thought still needed to be learned about the topic.
Since I have no idea what your research might include, please note and address the answer in the fourth paragraph. If you have any further questions, please ask. I am happy to help.
This solution outlines what questions should be asked when evaluating a research hypothesis. Additionally, the solution explains what should be examined when evaluating a methods section of a research paper.
Provides two more research questions: one could that could be answered with a quasi-experimental design and one that could be addressed with a true experimental design.
A survey that is put together quickly might have weak questions (questions that are not worded well, that are not clear, might have grammatical or typos, might lead the subject in a specific way, might be repeated...)
Mary - What are the research questions? - What are the hypotheses? - What variables are to be considered? - What ethical considerations must you take into account?
