Using data from secondary sources
  • Paraphrasing
  • Summarizing
  • Quoting
  • Paraphrasing, Summarizing and Quoting are
    involved with using thoughts, ideas and fact from
    other authors to explain your topic of your
    report. When you paraphrase, summarize or quote,
    you must acknowledge the source. In other words,
    you must cite the sources you took from.

Ways of citing the sources
  • Author Prominence
  • Information Prominence

Ways of citing the sources
  • Author Prominence
  • Use the author surname as part of the sentence
    with year of publication and page number in the

David (2003, p. 21) has agued that It is the
responsibility of all developed nations to ease
their burden.
David and Christopher (2006, p. 99) stated, The
number of world refugees now exceeds 11 million.
David et al. (2005, p. 98) stated, The number of
world refugees now exceeds 11 million.
David et al (2005) stated, The number of world
refugees now exceeds 11 million (p. 80).
Ways of citing the sources
  • Information Prominence
  • Use the authors surname, year of publication
    and page number in the parentheses at the end of
    the sentence.

It has been agued that It is the responsibility
of all developed nations to ease their burden

  • Use your own words to write someones idea
    without changing the meaning.
  • You paraphrase by using synonyms or expressing
    the ideas in your own sentences.
  • Is as long as the original information.
  • Contains all the details of the original

Paraphrasing Sample
Original text The citizens of Siem Reap are
complaining loudly about the problems and
inefficiency of the sanitation system, because
Friday the sanitation crew removed approximately
half of the refuse on the center street.
Source Abrams, K. (1982, p.23) Sanitation
System, New Jersey Prentice Hall
Paraphrase Garbage removal for people of Siem
Reap has been a problem. They are unhappy about
the way the garbage collectors have done their
job. For example, only half of the garbage was
removed on Friday. (Abrams 1982, p.23)
  • To write the main ideas of a paragraph, section
    or article.
  • To put the writers main ideas into your own
  • To shorten a large amount of material.
  • To leave out unnecessary details.

  • To use someones exact words in your report.
  • You quote coz the author wrote clear and exact
    words that you think are valuable.
  • You quote coz the author is the one you trust and
    you want to use his or her words to explain your
  • You quote coz the author wrote unique words that
    will add interest in your report.
  • There are two types of quotationshort quotation
    and long quotation.

Short quotation
  • Consists of fewer than 30 words.
  • Should be incorporated into your sentence without
    disrupting the flow of your paragraph.
  • Should have the full stop outside the reference.
  • Should keep the same font size of the paragraph.

Short quotation model
Short quotation The church is not the only
setting where the soul may be nurtured as the
soul also finds substance in more domestic
settings, like the family home where customs and
values have created a spirit handed down over
generations (Jones 1998, p.89).
Long quotation
  • Contains more than 30 words.
  • Should be begun on new line. Do not use quotation
  • Period is put at the end of quotation.
  • Put citation at the end of the sentence.
  • You should introduce sentences in your own words
    before you use long quotation.
  • Fully indented to make sure it looks distinct
    from sentences in the paragraph.
  • Use smaller font than other sentences in the

Long quotation sample
Long quotation The church is not the only
setting where the soul may be nurtured as The
soul also finds substance in more domestic
settings, like the family home where customs
and values have created a spirit handed down over
generations. According to Thomas Moore, the
soul finds sacredness in the ordinary, and may
benefit most when its spiritual life is
performed in the context of mundane daily life.
(Jones 1998, p.89).
Important points about quoting
  • When you quote other peoples ideas
  • Be accurate. Do not change the original. If you
    have a good reason to omit part of a quotation,
    use an ellipsis (...) in place of the missing
  • Example
  • The first reason . . . is the inability of
    underdeveloped nations to produce enough food,
    Dr. Doom (2003, p. 32) stated.

Important points about quoting
  • If you have a good reason to add words to the
    original, put brackets ( ) around the added
  • Example
  • The first reason for the inevitability is the
    inability of underdeveloped nations, which have
    only thirty percent of the population, consume
    seventy percent of the food, he said.

Using data from primary sources
  • Observation
  • Interview
  • Questionnaire

  • Systematic and selective way of watching and
    listening to an interaction or phenomenon as it
    takes place.
  • Is appropriate for studying the individuals
    behavior not their perceptions.
  • Is also appropriate in situations where full and
    accurate information cannot be elicited by
  • Types of observation Participant Observation and
    Non-participant Observation

Participant Observation
  • An observation in which a researcher participates
    in the activities of the group being observed in
    the same manner as its members.

Non-participant observation
  • An observation in which the researcher does not
    get involved in the activities of the group being
  • A researcher, in this type of observation,
    remains a passive observer, watching and
    listening to its activities and drawing
    conclusions from this.

Problems with using observation
  • Individuals may change their behavior when they
    become aware that they are being observed.
  • The interpretations drawn from observation might
    vary from one observer to another.
  • There is the possibility of incomplete
    observation and/or recording.

Ways of recording observation
  • Narrative recording
  • Scale recording
  • Categorical recording
  • Recording on mechanical devices

Narrative recording
  • The researcher records a description of the
    interaction in his or her own words.
  • He or she makes brief notes while observing and
    soon after observation makes detailed notes in
    narrative form.

Scale recording
  • The researcher develops a scale so as to rate
    various aspects of the interaction or phenomenon.

Scale recording example
Categorical recording
  • Observer decide to record his or her observation
    using categories.
  • The type and number of categories depend on the
    type of interaction and the observers choice
    about how to classify the observation.

Categorical recording example
Recording on mechanical devices
  • Observer use a video tape to record his or her
    observation and then analyze.

  • A person-to-person interaction between two or
    more individuals with a specific purpose in mind.
  • Types of interview
  • - Unstructured interview
  • - Structured interview.

Unstructured interview
  • Is also known as in-depth interview.
  • Interviewer formulates questions spontaneously
    during an interview.
  • It can be carried out in a one-to-one situation
    or collectively with a group of respondents
    called focused group interview.

Structured interview
  • The investigator asks a pre-determined set of
    questions, using the same wording and order of
    questions as specified in the interview schedule.
  • Interview schedule is a written list of
    questions, open or closed-ended, prepared for use
    by an interview.
  • Interview can be carried out by face-to-face,
    telephone or other electronic media.

The advantages of the interview
  • is appropriate for complex situations
  • is useful for collecting in-depth information
  • Information can be supplemented
  • Questions can be explained
  • has a wider application
  • Can investigates motives and feelings
  • Good response rate

The disadvantages of the interview
  • is time-consuming and expensive
  • geographical limitation
  • the quality of data may vary when many
    interviewers are used
  • the interviewer may be biased
  • possible embarrassment

Planning interview
  • List the area in which you require information.
  • Decide on type of interview.
  • Transform areas into actual questions.
  • Try them out on a friend or relative.
  • Make an appointment with respondents.
  • Try and fix a venue and time.

Conducting interview
  • A written list of questions, the answers to which
    are recorded by respondents.
  • In questionnaire respondents read the questions
    and write down the answers.
  • The difference between an interview schedule and
    a questionnaire is that, in the interview
    schedule it is the interviewer who asks and
    explains the questions and records the
    respondents replies on an interview schedule.

Considerable aspects when designing questionnaire
  • Questions must be clear and easy to understand
  • The layout should be easy to read and pleasant to
    respondents eyes.
  • The sequence of questions should be easy to
  • The questionnaire should be developed in an
    interactive way.
  • A sensitive question should be prefaced by an
    interactive statement explaining the relevance of
    the question.
  • Use a different font for interactive statements
    to distinguish them from the actual questions.
  • Excessive size can only reduce response rates.
  • Short and simple questionnaire are the best.

The choice between a questionnaire and an
interview schedule
  • The nature of the investigation
  • The geographical distribution of the study
  • The type of study population

Ways of administering a questionnaire
  • The mailed questionnaire
  • Collective questionnaire
  • Administration in a public place

The advantages of a questionnaire
  • Less expensive
  • Offers greater anonymity
  • Can cover a large number of people or
  • Wide geographic coverage
  • No prior arrangement are needed
  • Avoids embarrassment on the part of the
  • Respondent can consider responses
  • No interviewer bias

The disadvantages of a questionnaire
  • Limited application
  • A low response rate
  • Lack of opportunity to clarify issues
  • The response to a question may be influenced by
    the response to other questions
  • It is possible to consult others
  • A response cannot be added with other information

Designing your questionnaire
  • It is important that you write a covering letter
    with your questionnaire
  • - introduce you and the institution you are
  • - describe in two or three sentences the main
    objectives of your study.
  • - convey any general instruction
  • - indicate that participation in the study is
  • - assure respondents of the anonymity of the
    information provided by them.
  • - provide a contact number in case they have any
  • - give a return address for the questionnaire
    and a deadline for its return.
  • - thank them for their participation in the

Forms of question in questionnaire
  • Open-ended questions
  • Close-ended questions
  • Attitude questions
  • Ranking questions
  • Categorical questions
  • Listing questions

Open-ended questions
  • the possible responses are not given.
  • the respondents write down the answers in his or
    her words.

Open-ended question model
  • Questionnaire
  • . What is your current age? ........... years
  • . How would you describe your current marital
    status? ............
  • . What is your average annual income?
  • . What, in your opinion, are the qualities of a
    good administrator?
  • ..........................
  • ..........................
  • ..........................
  • ..........................
  • ..........................

Advantages of open-ended questions
  • provide in-depth information
  • provide respondents the opportunity to express
    themselves freely, resulting in a greater variety
    of information

Disadvantages of open-ended questions
  • Analysis is difficult
  • some respondents may not be able to express
    themselves, so information can be lost

Close-ended questions
  • the possible answers are set out in the
  • the respondent or the investigator ticks the
    category that best describes the respondents
  • It is usually wise to provide a category other,
    please specify to accommodate any response not

Close-ended question model
  • Questionnaire
  • . Please indicate your age by placing a tick in
    the appropriate category
  • ? under 15
  • ? 15-19 years old
  • ? 20-24 years old
  • . How would you describe your current marital
  • ? Married
  • ? Single
  • ? Divorced
  • . What, in your opinion, are the qualities of a
    good administration?
  • ? Able to make decisions
  • ? Fast decision maker
  • ? Able to listen
  • ? Other, please specify
  • ..................................................
  • ..................................................

Advantages of close-ended questions
  • As it provides ready made categories, it helps to
    ensure that the information needed by the
    researcher is obtained
  • Because the possible responses are already
    categorized, they are easy to analyze.

Disadvantages of close-ended questions
  • information obtained lacks depth and variety
  • chance of investigator bias

Attitude questions
  • The respondent says how much they agree or
    disagree with each one.

Attitude question example 1
Attitude question example 2
Ranking questions
  • Ask the respondent to place things in rank or

Ranking question model
Categorical questions
  • Each respondent's answer can fit only one

Categorical question example
Listing questions
  • Offer the respondent a list of responses, any of
    which they can choose.

Listing question sample
Considerations in formulating questions
  • Always use simple and everyday language
  • Do not use ambiguous questions
  • Do not ask double-barreled questions
  • Do not ask leading questions
  • Do not ask questions that are based on

Process of questionnaire development
The construction of questions in questionnaire or
  • Step 1 list all the specific objectives,
    research questions or hypotheses
    to be tested.
  • Step 2 For each objective, research
    question or hypothesis, list all the
    associated questions that you want
  • to answer through your study.
  • Step 3 Take each question identified in step 2
    and list the information required to
    answer it.
  • Step 4 Formulate questions to obtain this

Constructing question model
Order of questions
  • Random order
  • Logical progression

Prerequisites for data collection
  • Motivation to share the required information
  • Clear understanding of the questions
  • Possession of the required information

Sampling methods
  • Technical terms about sampling
  • Need to do sampling
  • Steps for doing sampling
  • Types of sampling

Technical terms about sampling
  • Population does not necessarily mean people it
    can refer to aggregates of texts, institutions,
    or anything else being investigated.
  • A sample is simply a small group drawn from the
    survey population.
  • Sampling is the process of taking samples from
    population in order to generalize our results
    back to the population from which they were
  • Sampling frame is a list that should contain all
    or most of the elements of the population you
    wish to sample.
  • Quantitative data is anything that can be
    expressed in statistical or number form or can be
    measured in some way, such as age,
    qualifications, or income.
  • Qualitative data is concerned with peoples
    feelings about some issues. Data may be gathered
    from either primary sources or secondary sources.

Why a need to do sampling?
  • It would be impractical to survey the entire
  • Your budget constraints.
  • Your time constraints.
  • You have to collect all the data but need the
    results quickly.
  • However, you can survey an entire population when
    it is of a manageable size.

Steps for doing sampling
Types Sampling
- Snowball sampling
Probability sampling
  • Any method of sampling that utilises some form of
    random selection.
  • Units are selected by chance.

Simple random sampling
  • Selecting samples at random from the sampling
    frame using either random number table or lottery
  • In lottery method, you write number in a piece of
    paper and then put them in a box and you pick up
    the number until you reached the sample size.

Systematic sampling
Example 1
Systematic sampling
Example 2
Stratified random sampling
  • Involves separating the research population into
    distinct, non-overlapping groups (strata), each
    containing subjects that share similar
  • Strata is plural
  • Stratum is singular
  • Stratified random sampling is also called
    proportional or quota random sampling.

Stratified random sampling
Stratified random sampling
Cluster or area sampling
  • Divide population into groups or clusters.
  • Randomly sample clusters
  • Measure all units within sample clusters

Multi-stage sampling
  • Sometimes population is too large and scattered
    for it to be practical to make a list of the
    entire population from which to draw a sample.
  • For example, when a polling organisation samples
    provinces in Cambodia. The organisation lists are
    compiled by provinces. They might first do a
    sample of provinces then samples within the
    selected provinces. These illustrate two stages.
    They might use even more stages.

Non-probability sampling
  • Any method of sampling that utilises some form of
    non-random selection.
  • Usually, researchers purposively select sample

Convenient sampling
  • is also known as grab, accidental or opportunity
  • involves the sample being drawn from that part of
    the population which is close to hand.
  • a sample population selected because it is
    readily available and convenient.
  • the researcher using such a sample cannot
    scientifically make generalizations about the
    total population from this sample because it
    would not be representative enough.

Convenient sampling example
  • Interviewing people at a shopping mall as they
    walk by. This is easy because you just choose it,
    without any random mechanism. You just choose the
    people that walk by you as your standing there.
  • Or if you want to choose 5 people from a class of
    50. You could choose First 5 students who raise
    their hand. First 5 students in the first row. 5
    tallest students .

Judgment sampling
  • is also known as purposive sampling.
  • A method of choosing a data sample drawn from a
    larger population based on one's own judgment,
    grounded in relevant experience.
  • is used when you want a quick sample and you
    believe you are able to select a sufficiently
    representative sample for your purposes.
  • use your own judgment to select what seems like
    an appropriate sample.
  • For example, market researchers might judge a
    particular town centre shopping centre to be
    representative of their target market.

Quota sampling
  • It is similar to stratified random sampling.
    However, the selection within strata is
  • In quota sampling, the population is first
    segmented into mutually exclusive sub-groups,
    just as in stratified sampling. Then judgment is
    used to select the subjects or units from each
    segment based on a specified proportion.
  • Quota sampling is useful when time is limited,
    sampling frame is not available, research budget
    is very tight or when detailed accuracy is not
    important. you can also choose how many of each
    category is selected.

Quota sampling example
Snowball sampling
  • Use when you do not have access to sufficient
    people with the characteristics you are seeking.
  • Find people to study. Ask them to refer you other
    people who fit your study requirements, then
    follow up with these new people. Repeat this
    method of requesting referrals until you have
    studied enough people.

Snowball sampling example
  • A researcher is studying environmental engineers
    but can only find five. She asks these engineers
    if they know any more. They give her several
    further referrals, who in turn provide additional
    contacts. In this way, she manages to contact
    sufficient engineers.

Chapter 5 Data analysis, Result Discussion
  • Processing Data
  • Result Section (Displaying Data)
  • Discussion Section

Processing data
  • - Editing data
  • - Integrating data
  • - Analysis

Steps in Data Processing
Editing Data
  • scrutinizing the completed research instruments
    to identify and minimize errors, incompleteness,
    misclassification in the information obtained
    from the respondents.

Why editing data?
  • forget to ask questions
  • forget to record a response
  • wrongly classify a response
  • write only half a response
  • write illegibly

Ways of minimizing such problems
  • By inference
  • By recall
  • By going back to the respondents

Ways of editing data
  • Examine answers to one question or variable at a
  • Examine answers to all questions at the same
    time, this is examine the responses given by a

Integrating and analyzing data
  • Use SPSS program to integrate data.
  • SPSS stands for Statistical Package for Social
    and Science.
  • SPSS is used to integrate, analyze and display
    the data.

  • You can download SPSS program from the website
  • Call to the number, 012 346 682, if you have any

Result section (Displaying data)
  • This section is the analysis of the result you
    have obtained from the field.
  • In this case, tell the readers what you have
    searched or found, and what the results mean.
  • Graphs and tables are good methods for presenting

Result section consist of 3 points
  • Presenting the result
  • Analyzing the result
  • Drawing conclusion

Presenting the result
  • Presenting result through tables.
  • Presenting result using graphs.

Chapter 6 Conclusion Recommendation
  • Summary
  • Conclusion
  • Recommendation

  • the highlight of the important findings.
  • In the result part in the report writing, you
    meticulously introduce the results
    point-by-point, but in summary you are now
    writing bigger chunk of information.

  • Researcher judge the conclusion upon the
    completion of the projection implementation and
    report writing.
  • Abstract drawn from the summary of findings.

  • Recommendations are geared toward education and
    practical utility.

Chapter 7 Reference Appendices
  • Reference
  • Appendices

  • Reference is written to recognize the sources
    from where you have quoted.
  • Reference is written at the end of the paper.
  • Reference must be alphabetically in logical
