Research
Problem
Research Problem
The educational issue or
problem that will be studied.
Research Problem
Quantitative Research seeks to
predict, explain, or describe an
outcome or event (Johnson &
Christensen, 2014).
Though the NCLB (2002) includes the arts as a core subject, the
focus on reading and mathematics accountability has altered
priorities, causing many administrators to reduce arts education
opportunities in response to the challenges posed by this act (Arts
Education in Maryland Schools Alliance [AEMS], 2006). In doing so,
critical links to academic success are nonexistent for many
students, especially those attending rural schools (Garcia, Jones, &
Isaacson, 2015).

Quantitative Research Problem


Popa & Pucs (2015) research investigates effects of
dynamic assessment on mathematics achievement
among elementary school students, with potential
giftedness analyzed as additional predictor.

Quantitative Research Problem


Mutawahs (2015) research seeks to
investigate the development of
mathematics anxiety and its effect on
mathematics performance.

Quantitative Research Problem


Research Problem
Qualitative Research seeks
understanding the realm within a
group or investigates a
phenomenon, process, or event
(Johnson & Christensen, 2014).
Dar (2016) believes individuals who may have
advanced academic skills to pursue their careers
further... do not have adequate empathetic and
pro social (E & P) skills to adjust well into the
society at large.

Qualitative Research Problem


While studies about how teachers create and
implement culturally relevant practices have
increased over the past decade, few include
teachers of preschool age children.
(Gichuru, Riley, Robertson, & Park, 2015)

Qualitative Research Problem


Chambers & Hausmans (2014) research problem
was to investigate critical factors that may
contribute to a students achievement in rural-
Appalachia.

Qualitative Research Problem


Research Problem
Mixed Research is a balance between
the emic perspective in exploring a
phenomenon and the etic perspective
of explaining, predicting, or describing
an incident (Johnson & Christensen,
2014).
Agodini & Harris (2011) research problem
centered around weak math skills and the
association to low socioeconomic backgrounds

Mixed Research Problem


Clements (2011) research problem was to
investigate the addressing the mathematics gap
prior to a child beginning school and how that
relates to achievement.

Mixed Research Problem


VanDoorn and Eklund (2013) stated The
challenge for educators is how to use social
media which is, after all, social to
enhance learning outcomes.

Statement
of Purpose
Statement of Purpose
The intent or objective of the
study.
Statement of Purpose
Quantitative Research identifies
the relationship explored between
a set of variables (Johnson &
Christensen, 2014).
This study sought to provide evidence which would determine if a
statistically significant difference existed among the third- through
eighth-grade reading and math state assessment scores in Texas of
all students who participated in a fine arts program, and ... students
who did not participate in a fine arts program across levels of fine
arts implementation during the 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010 school
years in a small, rural south Texas school district (Garcia, Jones, &
Isaacson, 2015).

Quantitative Research Purpose


primary classroom applications of dynamic assessment; the
relation between static and dynamic in curriculum-based
evaluation in primary classroom; and the role of potential
giftedness in explaining potential differences in mathematics
achievement when dynamic assessment is used in the
classroom (Popa & Puc, 2015).

Quantitative Research Purpose


This study aims to determine the reliability and validity of
the translated Revised Mathematics Anxiety (R-MANX) Survey
when used with the students in Bahrain schools. The study
also explores the relationships between mathematics anxiety
and achievements for middle and high school students
Mutawah, 2015.)

Quantitative Research Purpose


Statement of Purpose
Qualitative Research
defines the central idea your
research seeks to describe, discover,
or understand
States the method(s) in which data
is collected and analyzed
Dar (2016) states his purpose is to achieve a fine
cognitive-affective balance and to demonstrate
that affective skills can be taught in fair unison
with cognitive skills without compromising the
latter.

Qualitative Research Purpose


investigate how childrens cultural backgrounds
are reflected in Head Start classrooms based on
the perceptions of seven Head Start teachers.
(Gichuru et al, 2015)

Qualitative Research Purpose


The purpose of this study was to identify and
describe factors distinguishing between high and
low-performing elementary rural Appalachian
schools on reading achievement (Chambers &
Hausman, 2014).

Qualitative Research Purpose


Statement of Purpose
Mixed Research
Relates that both quantitative and
qualitative perspectives are
implemented to analyze the event,
process, or phenomenon (Johnson &
Christensen, 2014).
To determine and compare the effectiveness of
early elementary school math curricula at
improving student math achievement in
disadvantaged schools (Agodini & Harris, 2011).

Mixed Research Purpose


This paper examines the longitudinal effects
of a randomized field trial involving the scale-
up of a preschool mathematics curriculum
(Clements, 2011).

Mixed Research Purpose


The aim of Van Doorn & Eklund (2013) was to
explore the issue of student perceptions of the
use of CMC by assessing the perceived social-
interactional and learning benefits of
Facebook chat.
Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC)

Mixed Research Purpose


Research
Questions
Research Questions
The author will state specific
question(s) that he/she seeks
to answer through research.
Research Questions
Quantitative Research will
typically question the
relationship between two or more
variables (Johnson & Christensen,
2014).
Is there a difference in reading and math achievement, as
measured by the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills
(TAKS) test, across levels of fine arts implementation 2007,
2008, 2009, and 2010 for all students in third through eighth
grades enrolled in a small, rural south Texas school district?
(Garcia, Jones, & Isaacson, 2015)

Quantitative Research Question


Popa & Puc (2015) state their research questions in the form of
hypotheses:
H1: Dynamic assessment techniques and procedures determine
significant improvements of mathematics performance in
elementary school students.
H2: Potential giftedness enhances the effect of dynamic assessment
techniques and procedures on mathematics performance in
elementary school students.

Quantitative Research Question


Is the Revised Mathematics Anxiety (R-MANX) Survey reliable and
valid?
Is there a relationship between mathematics anxiety and student
performance?
Mutawah (2015)

Quantitative Research Question


Research Questions
Qualitative Research will pose a
question concerning an event,
process, or phenomenon (Johnson
& Christensen, 2014).
Dars (2015) major objectives were to:
1. analyze the English curriculum and textual materials ... for the presence of E & P
themes.
2. explore how teachers manifested and taught E & P skills in classrooms
3. raise awareness of E & P skills through materials and activities.
4. observe students interest in academic work while they focused on E & P
integrated class activities.
5. explore the ways parents considered the teaching of E & P skills in schools.
empathetic and pro social (E & P)

Qualitative Research Question


How do Head Start Program teachers
reflect their childrens cultural
backgrounds in the classrooms? (Gichuru
et al, 2015)

Qualitative Research Question


What factors differ in rural Appalachian
elementary schools that are high and
low-achieving in reading? (Chambers &
Hausman, 2014)

Qualitative Research Question


Research Questions
Mixed Research will pose
questions through both the
quantitative lens and the
qualitative lens.
Research Questions
Mixed Research - Separate questions
may exist for the quantitative portion
of the research than the qualitative
portion (Johnson & Christensen, 2014).
What are the relative effects of the studys four math curricula on
math achievement of first- and second-graders in disadvantaged
schools?
Are the relative curriculum effects influenced by school and
classroom characteristics? (Agodini & Harris, 2011)

Mixed Research Question


Do children who are exposed to the Building Blocks
mathematics curriculum in preschool perform better
on measures of mathematics skills through the end of
first grade than do children who were not exposed to
that curriculum? (Clements, 2011)

Mixed Research Question


Does the ability to use Facebook chat to
communicate with the teacher benefit
the learning experience?
(VanDoorn & Eklund, 2013)
