In contrast to qualitative designs, which are all basically non-experimental and descriptive, quantitative research designs may be either experimental or non-experimental. Within the non-experimental category, descriptive and correlational research are sub-categories.

Using the Ashford University Library databases, look for a scholarly/peer-reviewed quantitative research study on the topic you selected in Week 1. In your initial post,

  • Appraise the differences between experimental and non-experimental research.
  • Differentiate between a correlational study and an experimental study.
  • State the hypothesis being tested in the selected quantitative research study.
  • Identify the major variables and categorize them as independent or dependent.
  • Describe the methods and results of the study.
  • Determine whether the study is descriptive, correlational, or experimental, and explain why it fits this classification.

Document your sources in APA style (Links to an external site.), with in-text citations and references listed at the end of the post.
