Correlational Research

Methods for Scientific Inquiry Presentation Group Project.

Create eight to ten slides (length does not include the cover or references slides) PowerPoint presentation with references about your group’s assigned research method.

My group assigned research method: Correlational Research

In your PowerPoint presentation, include the following:

– Description of the research method.

– Describe whether it is qualitative or quantitative, or both, and why.

– What are the steps to using this method? Explain in detail.

– Provide an example of one study where it has been used. Summarize the study and how it used your group’s assigned research method.

– Identification of challenges and limitations of this method.


Correlational Research

I’m studying and need help with a Writing question to help me learn.

Correlational Research

Descriptive research methods are nonexperimental methods that are used to acquire information about a phenomenon or to describe the relationship between two or more phenomena. Nonexperimental methods are different from experimental methods in that they do not involve the manipulation of variables or the modification of the situation under investigation. Explain the purpose of correlational research and develop three research examples of when a correlational study would be required. Pertaining to the examples you provided, what type of information would the data/results provide and what would the proposed strength of the associations be? Discuss some potential third variables that could be responsible for the relationships between the variables and how those could be threats to internal validity. Post should be at least 3625 words.
