planned observation for some intended purpose
Harlow's Rhesus Monkeys
used the contact-comfort theory versus the nursing- wire theory
How do you develop good research questions?
make sure they are answerable, measurable, empirical with operationally defined variables, important, testable, and not too broad
Specific Measurable Attainable Relevant Timely (Evaluate and Re-evaluate were added)

What articles should you look for?
ones that have to do with the ESSENCE of the study you are doing with a large enough sample size
In what two ways can a theory help you develop research ideas?
one: allows you to predict behaviour
two: when two or more alternative theories
account for the same initial
observations you can test them
How can applied issues suggest research ideas for you?
research ideas often arise from the need to solve practical problems
A question that can be answered through objective observation
- able to make observations under precisely
- observations must be reproducible within
those same conditions
- observations must be confirmed by others
Operationally Defined Terms
allows you to measure the precise variables and determine whether a relationship exists between them, working with precise definitions which limits the generability of the answers
What makes a research question important and why should you ask them?
- don't use participants to answer trivial
- important if it will clarify relationships
- important if it leads to obvious practical
- unimportant questions are a waste of time

Knowledge of research design is important in developing an appropriate study to approach a problem or opportunity.
They refine or clarify questions , reveal badly worded questions , gives the interviewer practice so the real one goes smoothly
Marketing research studies cannot be designed to find out what consumers' problems are and to assess the suitability of different proposed methods of resolving those problems.
