Research Tools

VNI research supervisors are experienced in the sophisticated application of BluAgile Research Design & Methodology.

Research Tools

VNI facilitates the entire research design and methodology activity across both qualitative and quantitative research types, including mixed-method and triangulation. VNI can assist you in formulating theoretical and conceptual research frameworks.

The difference between qualitative and quantitative research:

Qualitative Research

  • Methods include focus groups, in-depth interviews, and reviews of documents for types of themes
  • Primarily inductive process used to formulate theory or answer problem statements
  • More subjective: describes a problem or condition from the point of view of those experiencing it
  • Text-based
  • More in-depth information on a few cases
  • Unstructured or semi-structured response options
  • No statistical tests
  • Can be valid and reliable: largely depends on the skill and rigour of the researcher
  • Time expenditure lighter on the planning end and heavier during the analysis phase
  • Less generalisable

Qualitative Research

  • Surveys, structured interviews & observations, and reviews of records or documents for numeric information
  • Primarily deductive process used to test pre-specified concepts, constructs, and hypotheses that make up a theory
  • More objective: provides observed effects (interpreted by researchers) of a program on a problem or condition
  • Number-based
  • Less in-depth but more breadth of information across a large number of cases
  • Fixed response options
  • Statistical tests are used for analysis
  • Can be valid and reliable: largely depends on the measurement device or instrument used
  • Time expenditure heavier on the planning phase and lighter on the analysis phase
  • More generalisable
