Best Practices for Measuring Students’ Attitudes toward Learning Science
Literature Review of Sample Design and Methods
The purpose of this paper is to determine if the professional information technology IT in Puerto Rico has had an impact during the job search process, financial compensation and success in the industry, from the point of view of management, with the emergence of certification. To analyze the data in this study the authors used descriptive and inferential statistical techniques. In accordance with the views expressed by managers, IT professionals with experience are more likely to be selected during the recruitment process and achieve success in their industry compared to professional certification or degree. When managers evaluate the compensation of professionals, certification, academic degree or work experience do not significantly affect the attitude of managers. The research questions were answered based on the views of managers about the phenomenon studied and did not consider the professionals themselves. The mechanisms for certification are expensive and tend to be time consuming. The results of this study provide practical benefits to IT professionals because they can be used as a reference.
This guide is aimed at anyone who is keen to develop their understanding of research. This may be because you need to design a research project of your own, or simply to help you understand and critically evaluate research findings that are presented to you. It aims to demystify the vocabulary surrounding methods and methodologies, and provide practical advice on some of the issues to be considered when designing a research project. In particular it highlights some of the most common mistakes made by new researchers. Research is at the heart of academic life, one of the defining characteristics of Higher Education which differentiates it from other forms of adult training.
Impact of information technology certifications in Puerto Rico
The purpose of this paper is to provide evidence that the debate between quantitative and qualitative is divisive and, hence, counterproductive for advancing the social and behavioral science field. We advocate that all graduate students learn to utilize and to appreciate both quantitative and qualitative research methodologies. As such, students will develop into pragmatist researchers who are able to utilize both quantitative and qualitative techniques when conducting research. We contend that the best way to accomplish this is by eliminating quantitative research methodology and qualitative research methodology courses from curricula and replacing these with research methodology courses at different levels that simultaneously teach both quantitative and qualitative techniques within a mixed methodological framework.
