Draft Study uplaoded
Hypothetical Qualitative Example
The three research methods include qualitative, quantitative, and mixed methods (cite). I
selected the qualitative method to use open-ended questions. Qualitative researchers use openended
questions to discover what is occurring or has occurred (cite). In contrast, quantitative
researchers use closed ended questions to test hypotheses (cite). Mixed methods research
includes both a qualitative element and quantitative element (cite). To explore (your topic), I
will not be testing hypotheses which is part of a quantitative study or the quantitative portion of a
mixed methods study.
47 Note: As you can see, the example clearly starts with topic sentences (red text) that foreshadow what is to be
addressed in the paragraph. Notice the quantitative method paragraph does not address the design, as the topic
sentence does not suggest the design is the focus of the paragraph. The design is not foreshadowed in the topic
sentence. Remember, a topic sentence alerts the reader to the main topic of the paragraph.
