Research methods vary and different approaches are needed.  A magazine editor in a small town would like to include articles on several topics in the next issue.  Decide which of the following proposed article topics are suitable for a quantitative or qualitative research and explain why.
Coin collections, favorite recipes, rising home costs, best high schools, carpools, political polls. Parent teacher participation, book fairs.

With book fairs, parent teacher participation, favorite recipes, and coin collections the magazine editor would benefit from using the research method of  qualitative research. Reason being, is that qualitative research is good for individual level and identifying how people feel or their perspec tives on things. It is usually open ended responses and you really getting word of mouth feedback.
However, with rising home costs, best high schools (if they are referring to academic standings), carpools, and political polls, it would be best  suitable for him to conduct quantitative research because it is numerical data, and or measurements, and usually empirical evidence. Although, I think the best high schools and carpooling can be researched by using both.

For the editor to decide on a method of research for a topic a clear understanding of what the purpose is should be established. The editor would need to select a research question or research hypothesis to establish a focus on the topic which would drive the development of the research (M.U.S.E., 2013). Because qualitative research is exploratory and is used to gain an understanding of underlying reasons it could be used to identify trends and opinions on the topic. Qualitative research provides detailed information that can be used to establish an idea for potential quantitative research.

The choices for qualitative topics would be coin collection and why people enjoy doing it and lead to quantitative research providing statistic and hard fact about the topic. Favorite recipes for qualitative research could involve individual preferences and lead to quantitative research which identifies healthy eating statistics and cost preparation. Rising home cost qualitative data can be contributed to individual choices of where to live leading to quantitative data on the statistics for supply and demand. The best high schools can be an opinion gathered from qualitative data or quantitative statistics gathered and compared to other schools.

Car pooling qualitative research could be the observation of how many cars are in the car pool lane during a period of time for qualitative or for quantitative it could consist of an on line survey to establish fact and numbers. Parent teacher participation for qualitative research could be interviewing teachers and parents or students to determine any underlying problem followed with quantitative research to identify reasons why or why it does not happen and the effects. Book fairs can be qualitative if the reason is to explain why they occur and quantitative if the objective is to identify facts and numerical evidence for the phenomenon. It would be mute to attempt to identify qualitative research for politics. Politics is all about the number and statistics and is best left to quantitative research to identify anything you need to know about it.

Long, White, Friedman, & Brazeal (2000) discuss the proponents of qualitative research relating to quality information associated with social behaviors and quantitative research having power effects for ephemeral aspects. The selection of the research method will depend highly on the researcher’s desired learning outcome for the audience. All of the topics the editor wishes to discuss can be either associated with qualitative or quantitative research depending upon how you perceive the topic and what your objective for the audience is going to be. According to Carey (as cited by Sale, Lohfeld, & Brazil, 2002) quantitative and qualitative research techniques are merely tools; integrating them properly answers the important questions.

Research methods can be one of the most difficult, rigorous requiring design and great deal of expense.  Quantitative research largely uses methods such as questionnaires and surveys. It’s all about numbers. Quantitative research has the predetermined and large number of respondents involved. The article I chose is favorite recipes I’m pretty sure everyone likes to eat and enjoy the food they eat. Why not put together a receipt that’s good. The article title is called Taste so Good you can “Slap Your Mama”. It would be staff chili cook-off contest with 12 contestants. Each contestant would create a chart with their recipes. Then each contestant would cook their chili and prepare for tasting. Volunteered staff members can take a survey on whose chili recipe is the best. The numerical data for the testing favorite recipes can be from a scale 1-10. Where 10 is being the highest where the recipes are great and 1 where the recipe was not great.  A criteria chart is useful with three questions. Question 1 (Taste) and most importantly question, is the chili pleasing to the taste buds? Question 2(Appearance or Presentation) Does the chili look appetizing?  Question 3(Originality) Does the dish have creative flavor combination? The contestant score is calculated. The highest score wins the prize and their recipe will be the topic for next issue. Quantitative research is more logical and data-led approach which provides a measure of what people think from a statistical and numerical point of view .Quantitative is defined as measurement must be objective, qualitative and statistical valid.The sample size for a survey is calculated by statisticians using formulas to determine how large a sample size will be needed from a given population in order to achieve findings with an acceptable degree of accuracy (Anderson, 2006).

Part One:
Research methods vary and different approaches are needed. A magazine editor in a small town would like to include articles on several topics in the next issue. Decide which of the following proposed article topics are suitable for a quantitative or qualitative research and explain why: coin collections, favorite recipes, rising home costs, best high schools, carpools, political polls. Parent teacher participation, book fairs.

Qualitative and quantitative are methods to collect data when conducting research.  Depending on the type of data needed, either qualitative, quantitative or both methods can be utilized.  Data is gathered to solve a problem or answer a question (Creswell, 2015).  Qualitative research methods are composed of gathering data through interviews, questionnaires and observations (McLeod, 2008).  Qualitative research will not result in numerical data.  Quantitative research methods are numeric and can be composed of surveys that are based on a rating scale or raw numerical data that result in statistics (McLeod, 2008).

Various topics can be researched to increase understanding.  A magazine editor looking to discuss different topics can use qualitative, quantitative, or both research methods to inform readers.  Coin collections can be researched by quantitative research methods by collecting data of the average worth of coin collections and a rank of rarest coins.  Favorite recipes can be both qualitative and quantitative methods of research.  The magazine could allow its readers to choose their favorite recipes from a certain book and allows votes to be open-ended.  After the information is gathered, a poll can take place to measure the top five favorite recipes from that particular book.  Rising home costs are both qualitative and quantitative methods as well.  Numeric data can be gathered as the average percentage of rising costs in homes, the average size of the homes and the areas with the largest increase.  Qualitative data can include how first-time buyers are dealing with increased costs.

Best high schools can be researched with quantitative data by looking at average grades, graduation rates, retention rates, and ranking top high schools by city.  Carpools can be researched with quantitative methods by collecting data on how many people carpool versus those that drive alone and the average dollars saved on gas and time per month.  A survey can be conducted on why people choose to carpool with 4-5 different options to choose from and that data can be shared with a percentage.  Political polls use a quantitative method to see the percentage of votes for a particular participant or votes counted to pass certain propositions.  Qualitative research can be gathered as well for political polls and interviews can be held with people from different political viewpoints and their thoughts on different political topics.  Last, parent teacher participation in a book fair can be measured with both quantitative and qualitative measures.  The success of the book fair can determine the sales compared to other school’s book fairs as well as a list of the top five books purchased by children.  Qualitative research can be used by interviewing and observing teachers and parents and their approach to a successful book fair and how they will use funds generated by the proceeds.
