Week 3 Forum Question
In a seamless posting, please incorporate the following into your initial posting:
Discuss the differences between the three major approaches surrounding collection and analysis of data i,e., quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods. As well as, describe the design of scientific inquiry that may go with each method i.e., survey, narrative, phenomenological, ethnographic, grounded theory, or case study and why it would be selected. Then address which method and design you think you would prefer to use to conduct research and why.
Student expectations for Forum questions:
Your initial Forum posts require a minimum of a 500 word substantive response. All follow-up responses (minimum of 2) should require 250-300 words.
A total of three posting is necessary to have completed the bare minimum amount of forum work each week.
responses to the Forum group question need to be substantial and
significant supported by at least one additional scholarly reference
that goes beyond the readings. Students should be using the APUS Online
Library to search for peer-reviewed journal articles
that help support their argument. The in-text citation and references

as a response to the Forum question. Please be sure to use your own
words; meet the deliverable length; support your main post (in-text
citations AND list of references); use paragraphs in your main post to

Students will also be required to respond to at least two (2) other

thinking by asking additional questions or adding to the body of
knowledge started. If you argue, controversial issues use a reference to

substance. Your responses should contribute in a meaningful way to
helping advance our knowledge of the topics the class explores.
