Chapter 2: Scientific investigation




Question;13.;Which of the following is a;hierarchical listing of the hypothetico-deductive research method?;a. Identify;a broad problem area - Define the problem statement - Develop hypotheses - Determine measures - Data;collection - Data analysis - Interpretation of data;b.;Identify a broad problem area -;Define the problem statement - Determine measures - Data collection - Develop hypotheses - Data;analysis - Interpretation of data;c.;Define the problem statement -;Identify a broad problem area - Determine measures - Develop hypotheses - Data collection - Data analysis -;Interpretation of data;d. Identify a broad problem area -;Develop hypotheses - Determine measures - Data collection - Data analysis - Interpretation of data;14.;A hypothesis is falsifiable if it;is possible to disprove the hypothesis.;a. T;b. F;15.;Both theory generation (induction);and theory testing (deduction) are essential parts of the research process.;a. T;b. F;16.;Inductive processes are more;often used in causal and quantitative studies, whereas deductive research processes are regularly used in exploratory;and qualitative studies.;a. T;b. F;17.;Action research involvesin-depth, contextual analyses of;similar situations in other organizations;where the nature and definition of the problem happen to be the same as experienced in the current;situation.;a. T;b.;F;18.;Hypothesis testing is inductive in nature because we test if a;general theory is capable of explaining;a particular problem.;a. T;b. F;19.;According to Karl Popperit is not possible;to ?prove? a hypothesis by means of induction, because;no amount of evidence assures us that contrary evidence will not be found.;a. T;b.;F;20.;Analyses of both quantitative and qualitative data can be done to;determine if certain conjectures are;substantiated.;a. T;b.;F;21. A scientific hypothesis must be;testable and falsifiable.;a. T;b.;F;22. Simplicity in explaining the phenomena or problems that;occur, and in generating solutions for;the problems, is always preferred to complex research frameworks that consider;an unmanageable number of factors.;a. T;b. F;23. A researcher who observes individual;phenomena, and on this basis attempts to arrive at general conclusions, works inductively.;a. T;b. F
