What is Research?
Research is the searching of information using sources of your own or someone discoveries for a particular subject.
Types of Research
There are multiple types of research to help find the information that you are looking for:
Primary Research: Primary research is when you do your own investigations towards your study. e.g. Observing peoples behaviour in specific situations, having 1 to 1 interviews, a small focus group of people interested in the product or surveys/questionnaires.
Secondary Research: Secondary research is when you look at other peoples investigations towards the subject you are studying. e.g. Searching the internet, Reading Non-fiction books or records of previous research.
Quantitative Research: Quantitative research is a method of research used when your investigation is focusing on particular answers, limiting your results, so you can use statistics for a better understanding.
Qualitative Research: Qualitative research is a method of research used when your investigations have a focus on a particular subject but with no limits to the results, so you can get more feedback.
Triangulation Research: Triangulation Research is a combination of multiple types of research, mainly the combination of Quantitative and Qualitative research
From this task, I have learnt about different types of research and how they can be used. I could use this in the future in my own research.
