Philosophical differences between qualitative and quantitative | PSY 635 Research Design & Methods | Ashford University

PLEASE Review PSY635 Week Two Discussion Scenario ATTACHED!In that scenario, the three instructors realized there are limits to the insights they can gain through anonymous counting of discussion posts. The instructors would like to answer two additional research questions: (a) How do their students actually feel about the intervention? and (b) How do students view the influence of the intervention on their learning inside and outside of the classroom (if applicable)?

Compare the characteristics of appropriate research designs and recommend a qualitative research design that would facilitate answering the instructors’ additional questions. Explain the philosophical paradigm underlying the recommended approach. Evaluate the required articles attached and describe the  assumptions the instructors might have to set aside as they enter into a qualitative research study. Be sure to identify any ethical issues that may apply to the research. Review the characteristics of the quantitative approach described in the PSY635WK2 DISCUSSION attached. Explain the ways in which the quantitative approach and paradigm differs from the qualitative approach and paradigm you have recommended here.
