Report on Research Design and Methodology
Words limit: 2500 words
Assignment 3 – the Research Design and Methodology – is to ensure each student is able to contribute to the
construction of a written report demonstrating their understanding of the business research paradigm,
appropriate methodology, data collection, analysis and interpretation.
This assessment builds upon your Literature Review (assessment 2) in that you are now aware of what
additional data is needed to lead you to the answer to your research question(s) (as defined in Topic Approval
(assessment 1). Rather than search for additional secondary data, this methodology report requires you to
specify what primary data you would hope to collect, by applying qualitative or quantitative methods. [Note
that you are NOT required to actually go out and collect primary data].
In this assessment you will document what your team has decided as the most appropriate methodology. If
you choose a quantitative approach, you will go ahead and state your hypothesis, how you intend to verify it,
what data you need, how it can be collected and analysed. If you choose a qualitative approach, you will go
ahead and decide which method is appropriate, how you would design the questionnaire (including a few
example questions), and state how you would collate and interpret your data. [Note that you are NOT
required to actually obtain primary data].
Assignment Structure should be as the following:
1. Introduction (an edited and adjusted version of your topic approval) including a justification for your

research question(s).
2. A detailed research methodology addressing the qualitative-quantitative debate, hypothesis (if appropriate),
additional secondary data, proposed primary data sample size and sampling approach, questionnaire design
factors (include some sample questions), data collection method, envisaged analysis and interpretation.
3. A summary of your findings OR what you would expect to find
4. A conclusion (relating back to your original research problem and question(s))
5. List of references in Harvard style (only for sources mentioned in this submission)
Note: Approval may be requested (via your tutor to be approved by the Unit Coordinator) to undertake this
assignment with variation, such as a Business Plan or Business Development Case. If that is approved the
Assignment Structure and Marking Criteria may differ accordingly.
