Fundamentals of Research Design.
Alvir, Howard P.
A research design is used to find out how effective a given piece of research has been. This short course in the fundamentals of research design is intended to bring together a few typical examples and a few generally accepted principles of research in a practical kit. After a brief introduction on how to progress from data that is uncountable to data that is countable, stress is placed on coming up with data that is accountable. Since analysis of research design must be done quickly and accurately, a shorthand notation is introduced that helps x-ray a wide variety of designs through common terminology. Whenever a piece of research has been analyzed in this framework, it is possible to distinguish valid design from invalid design. The second section of the document provides self-study material that can be used for independent study. This will give a brief introduction to the fundamentals of research design. (RC)
