Learning Goal: I’m working on a writing question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Please provide no less than a 150 word response with at least 1 citation and reference to Regena’s response in the dialogue below. I have included the original question and my response for context. Reference included in answer must be in APA 7th edition format.Question:What considerations must be given to the selection of a quantitative methodology for a research study? Based on what you know now, which of these considerations do you believe are the most important? Why? My Response: Multiple considerations influence the selection of a quantitative research method. They include the objective of the research study to ensure alignment of methodology and research questions. Other considerations include reconciling with norms of the research areas and the best practices of researchers in the field. Also, the method’s practicalities are a vital consideration. I believe that the research questions and objectives are the most vital consideration. Shechtman & Sarig (2016) have an objective to determine the influence of feedback systems on counseling outcomes. In this view, the authors’ objective is the most influential consideration in guiding their choice of quantitative research method. The consideration allows the researchers to engage a methodology that includes all variables during data collection to facilitate analysis and integration of findings. In the same vein, including methodologies that align with the norms of the research area is a vital consideration. It enables researchers to eschew common missteps and errors in selecting a methodology. Shechtman, Z., & Sarig, O. (2016). The effect of client progress feedback on child/adolescent’s group-counseling outcomes. The Journal for Specialists in Group Work, 41(4), 334-349. https://doi.org/10.1080/01933922.2016.1232323 Regina’s Response: Yes, I agree that research questions are very important to the overall functionality of a study. I think each piece of a study has its place in the overall outcome of the study. However, I also think that if the research questions are not well thought out and researched beforehand, then the outcome of the survey could be jeopardized. Have you ever come across any studies where you thought that the research questions could have been more defined?
