Flashcards in 2.3 Inductive or Deductive? Two Different Approaches Deck (10):
Inductive approach - starts with something ?/empirical(hands-on)/?
The following study by researchers Katherine Allen, Christine Kaestle, and Abbie
Goldberg’s involved 23 young men and understanding how they learn about ?. Their narratives were looked at and the pattern found was that sisters play an imp. role in their understanding.
What type of research approach is used here?
What approach starts with a set of testable hypotheses/theory that is found compelling?
Which approach is typically associated with scientific investigation?
A study on US law enforcement responses to hate crimes. Ryan King and colleagues hypothesized that law enforcement's response would be less vigorous in areas of the country that had
a stronger history of racial violence. The authors developed their hypothesis from their reading of prior research and theories on the topic. , they tested the hypothesis by analyzing data on states’.
What type of approach does this study take?
• Inductive and deductive approaches to research can be employed together for a more ? understanding of the topic that a researcher is studying.
Though researchers don’t always set out to use both ? and ? strategies in their work, they sometimes find that new questions arise in the course of an investigation that can best be answered by employing both ?
Through the ??? we understand the routes in which both the deductive approach and the inductive approach take on research.
Walter Wallace Model
Within this approach a researcher begins by collecting data relevant to the topic of interest; then steps back to observe the data and develop a theory to explain certain patterns in the data.
