Variations in qualitative research designs exist and new ones continue to be advanced and refined. However, there is a basic set of research designs used in most qualitative research. Our textbook, Understanding Research, describes four common qualitative research designs.
See figure 9.2 in your Understanding Research textbook. Study the four common qualitative research designs found in figure 9.2 and select 10 peer-reviewed, scholarly articles from your online library related to your final project topic or research question that employs qualitative designs. Describe the research design used in each of the 10 articles.
Evaluate the application of qualitative decision support tools and techniques used in each article. Identify and critique decision-making models and supporting concepts and theories used in each article. Include an assessment of how the described research designs could be used to create the research design for your final project.
Your paper should be 4-6 pages in length and conform to the APA.
