Summary of ALL lectures for the midterm or WO: Scientific research methods UU 2018-2019
I hereby sell a PDF version of my summary for the course Wetenschappelijke Onderzoeksmethoden (WO). This course is given at Utrecht University and the summary contains all the material for the midterm exam that we had. When you buy this PDF, it will certainly ensure that you have a good chance of achieving a sufficient grade if the material is quite similar. Here, I assume that would be the case, but it can be happening of course that something has been added or something has been deleted, so check the parts that I discuss in the summary below and see if that matches. This summary contains all the important material from all lectures about the midterm in 2018-2019, and is therefore everything you need. Material discussed in the summary: design problems, knowledge questions, design science, social context, knowledge context, improvement design, knowledge sources, literature forms, goal structures, empirical knowledge, design research questions, engineering cycle, treatments, validation and evaluation, design cycle, research context, six rules for searching for information, 6W formula, problem descriptions, question types, GQM model, variable types, hypotheses, multipoint scale (Likert), sampling rules, samples, reliability of qualitative research, trade-off analysis, experiments, validity, plagiarism, fraud, quoting, copying, copyright, types of research, case studies, and the five stage process for conducting focus groups. Above is just a part of what is discussed in the summary, there is many more but these are the headlines. Among these elements are definitions, explanations about concepts, and examples. There are also images from the lectures inserted that must ensure that it is all clearer. These are explained in turn. The material is written in English. Everything is put down nicely under headers. Definitions or other important parts are printed in bold. NOTE: I am not responsible for any changes in the fabric this year that cause certain parts to be modified, or parts that have been added without my knowledge.
