Introduction To Quantitative Research
DQ 1) What is the nature of quantitative methodology? What types of measurements are best explored using quantitative methodology? Why? Based on your initial readings in Chapter 1 of the course textbook, how is this different from qualitative methodology? Explain.
DQ 2) Imagine that you already have a doctoral degree and have a new job as a supervisor. It comes to your attention that several employees are dissatisfied and talking about leaving. Turnover is costly and disruptive, so you urgently need to identify a solution. The intensity of the situation and the burgeoning negative bandwagon have you concerned that talking to employees about the problems they are experiencing will unnecessarily heighten emotions and exacerbate the situation. Nonetheless, you wish to come to your boss with a fact-based list of measures that may be taken, starting with the most urgent, easiest to implement, and most effective. What kind of data do you need? How do you acquire the information you need? Support your position.
For each DQ elaborate within 260-300 words. Use in text citations accordingly. Use scholarly reference(s) along with the one(s) attached as well. Use and cite references using APA 7th Style Guide accordingly. Doctoral level class
