PRACTICAL RESEARCH 2
Course Description: The course aims to develop critical thinking and problem-solving
skills through quantitative research.

Course Content:
The Nature of Inquiry and Research
Identifying the Inquiry and Stating the Problem
Learning From Others and Reviewing the Literature
Understanding Data and Ways to Systematically Collect Data
Reporting and Sharing Findings
Research is a scientific, experimental, or inductive manner of thinking
(Baraceros, 2016).

Research is a systematic process of collecting, analyzing, and


interpreting information in order to increase our understanding of a
phenomenon about which we are interested or concerned (Leedy &
Ormrod, 2013).

Practical research aims to discover truths about topics that interests


or affects the researcher(s) in order to improve.
Is research relatable?
The Effects of Korean Drama on Students
Majority of students who took part in the research do not consider
their fanaticism with Korean drama to have affected their sleeping
patterns. Also, the study shows the same students are financially
responsible and are not even willing to buy products and franchises
relative to this type of entertainment.

Todays Teens: More Materialistic, Less Willing to Work
Jean Twenge and Tim Kasser, San Diego State University (2007)

Compared to previous generations, recent high school graduates are


more likely to want money and nice things, but less likely to say theyre
willing to work hard to earn them

62 percent of student-teenagers from 2005-07 think it is important to have lots of


money as compared to only 48 percent of the teenagers within 1976-78.

39 percent of the group admitted that they are not willing to work compared to
only 25 percent from the older group.

Social Media Usage and Depression
University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine

The more time young adults use social media, the more likely they are
depressed.

The 1,787 participants of the study used social media 61 minutes per
day and visited various social media accounts 30 times per week. 25
percent of these participants were classified as having high indicators
of depression.

Teens, Kindness and Cruelty on Social Network Sites
Amanda Lenhart (2011)

Despite the negative portrayal of adolescent social media usage by


most news outlets, nearly 70% of over 800 teens surveyed said that
they view people are mostly kind to one another online. 20%
responded that their peers were mostly unkind, while the rest said it
depends.
What research is NOT
(Leedy & Ormrod, 2013)

1. Research is not merely gathering information.


2. Research is not merely rummaging around for hard-to-locate
information.
3. Research is not merely transporting facts from one location to
another.
