Appropriate research design
This research intends to use a qualitative design in the collection of data. This design will
happen in a natural environment by using a combination of various methods, such as, interviews,
participatory observations, focus groups and document reviews. This is a system that aims at
developing a holistic, narrative description that informs researcher’s understanding of the topic
of study. This design is influential in providing relevant answers to research questions.
Describe the procedures you will use for the research.
The study will be carried out by following certain qualitative procedures, which include
observations, interviews, focus groups and document reviews. To begin with, observations are
methods that will require one or more individuals to collect firsthand information on the
processes, behaviors, or programs under study. In this study, this technique will enable the
research team to gather information on a wide variety of behaviors, capture a wide range of
interactions, and explicitly explore the assessment topic. Besides, this method can enable the
researcher to directly observe activities and operations in the institution; thus developing a
holistic viewpoint.
The research will also employ interview method in gathering information regarding the
topic of study. Interview method is categorized into in-depth and structured interviews. By in-
depth interview method, qualitative researchers will explore some general topics in order to
uncover the respondent’s opinions, but respects how participants structure and frame their
answers. The method requires the use of systematic questions in relation to the topic of study;
and that the respondents’ views are highly valued by the investigators. In this study, the research
team will conduct in-depth interviews on the institution’s members of administration officials,
lectures and students, as regards the topic of research.

On the other hand, structured interview involves the use of cautiously worded
questionnaires that are issued to the respective respondents. Here, much focus is on getting
responses to the well-paraphrased questions. The questions should demonstrate high level of
uniformity through question wording, unlike in-depth interviews where are allowed to provide
open and free answers to the questions asked. Besides, the use of interview method in this
research is based on assumptions that participants’ standpoints are knowable, meaningful and
can be made explicit, and that these views influence the project’s success. In this case, research
team will design questionnaires that will be issued to lectures, administration and students at
Strayer University.
Furthermore, the research is set use focus groups in the collection of data. This method
uses a combination of elements of participant observation and interviewing. This is intended to
apply group interaction to elicit information and insights that can likely come out without the
group’s communication. It is influential in that it will intrinsically allow discussion, observation
of group dynamics, attitudes, language, firsthand insights into participants’ behaviors. In this
study, the technique involves creation of focus groups among administration officials, students
and lectures in to gather relevant data.
The research can also engage in review of documents in the process of data collection.
This technique entails the use of secondary information collected by earlier researchers, which is
found in textbooks, university journals, magazines, and websites. This method is influential in
enabling investigators to access information and data that cannot be observed or achieved in a
different way.

The use of a qualitative research design and the aforementioned procedures will facilitate
effective collection of relevant information to the study. The research team will manage to gather
information related to the research questions. Some of the probable information collected in the
study relating to poor communication systems in Strayer University includes, but is not limited
to: missed lectures due to communication failure among administration, lectures and students;
missed examinations by students because of inefficient communication about examination
timetables; poor publicity of the university to the target market; ineffective transmission of
information regarding fee payments, students’ admission and registration; poor customer client
satisfaction; and poor general performance of the university.
Explain how your research design will be useful in answering the research questions
Qualitative research design used in this study will be influential in answering the study
questions since it employs appropriate techniques of collecting data. The use of observation
method in the collection of data enables the researchers to access firsthand information relating
to the research questions. Besides, the design entails the use interviews, both structured and in-
depth interviews, which are essential in collection of adequate information that responds to the
research questions. Furthermore, it uses focus groups and document reviews that are instrumental
in provide respondents’ perspectives on the study questions. What is more, this design will allow
researchers to talk face-to-face with respondents. Consequently, it facilitates collection of candid
perceptions, behaviors and attitudes as regards the topic of study. Therefore, the design is vital in
answering research questions because it provides one with suitable methods of gathering relevant
data and information about the topic under research.
