Review the “Levels of Measurement” Skill Builder. Pay particular attention to definitions, examples, and differences between and among levels of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio).
Review the “Visual Displays for Categorical Variables” and “Visual Displays for Continuous Variables” Skill Builders,as well as the video, Visual Displays of Data. Think about how the level of measurement of a variable determines an appropriate visual display.
Review the “Independent and Dependent Variables” Skill Builder. Consider the differences between independent and dependent variables.
Think about a social problem or phenomenon that could be researched using quantitative methodology, perhaps something you are considering as a dissertation topic. Consider the independent and dependent variables you would include in a study about the social problem or phenomenon and their respective levels of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, and ratio).
Alignment of scenario elements is important. See the Examples of Aligned and Misaligned Scenarios document, which can be downloaded from the Week 6 Learning Resources area of the classroom.
Discussion posts are pass/fail but have minimum criteria to pass. See the Discussion Rubric to ensure you understand the pass/fail criteria.
By Day 3
This week is only about the quantitative scenario. Repost, or build on or refine as needed, your quantitative scenario using the following headings and according to the italicized instructions given for each element:
Program of Study: Identify your specific program of study and, if applicable, your concentration area.
Social Problem: Briefly describe the social problem or phenomenon of interest. Typically, this can be done in 3 or fewer sentences.
Quantitative Research Problem: Complete the following sentence: The scholarly community does not know…
Quantitative Research Purpose: Typically, this is a 1-sentence statement addressed by completing the following sentence: The purpose of this quantitative study is…
Quantitative Research Question: Typically, this is a 1-sentence question unless you have more than one research question.
Theory or Conceptual Framework: Identify a specific psychological or sociological theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework that guides the scenario. Briefly describe how the specific theory or conceptual framework guides your research question and will aid in interpretation of results.
Quantitative Research Design: Identify a specific quantitative research design. Do not use broad terms, such as survey design, cohort design, longitudinal design, causal-comparative design, cross-sectional design, and so on. Briefly describe how the selected design fits your scenario.
Quantitative Sampling Strategy: Be specific.
Quantitative Data Collection Method: Be specific.
Variables: Briefly describe each of your variables to include their range of measured values, level of measurement (nominal, ordinal, interval, or ratio), and identification as either an independent or dependent variable.
Note: Use proper APA format. If helpful, support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources..

This week’s assignment involves mixing two methods designs in research to ascertain and understand the results from quantitative and qualitative research. With week 1 and 2 assignments, I will explore more on an explanatory sequential design method for week five. It is a mixed research method where there are two phases of research conducted earlier – qualitative and quantitative research, and analyzing and interpreting this data is done later.
The explanatory sequential design:
Program of study: Mental health and economic safety nets.
Social problem: Understanding why a higher population in the black community are suffering a mental breakdown. Checking the demographics to see how safe this population is in the economic aspects. Understanding why this community never want to seek mental health services.
The explanatory sequential research problem: is that the scholarly community does not know why the black community members are not willing to seek for metal health care services. Also, a concern on how they can be sure with the economic safety nets to cushion their financial strain.
The explanatory sequential research purpose: aims at finding out the relationship between mental health breakdown and economic safety nets amongst the black community. Explanatory sequential research question: How would the black communities know that there is enough support they get to cushion their economic concerns? Why are the black society not willing to attend the mental health sessions to be better?
Research theory: is the ERG theory, as it will explain the correlation between financial independence, economic support, and mental health status within a population.
Explanatory sequential research design: is data analysis since the research intends to link the qualitative and quantitative findings, analyze and interpret.
Sampling strategy: Random and systematic sampling.
Explanatory sequential data collection method: are Focus groups, surveys and observation.
