Categories in the findings the general inductive approach provides a convenient and efficient way of analysing qualitative data for many research purposes the outcomes of analysis may be indistinguishable from those derived from a grounded theory approach many researchers are likely to find using a general inductive. Learn about market research methods which are grounded in philosophy and logical reasoning, such as deductive and inductive research. A voyage of discovery ethnography is often both iterative and inductive in the way it proceeds i summarise this approach as iterative-inductive but what does this mean in deductive research, the researcher comes up with a hypothesis based on what he or she thinks is already known (or based on a. Abstract:a general inductive approach for analysis of qualitative evaluation data is described the purposes for using an inductive approach are to (a) condense raw textual data into a brief, summary format (b) establish clear links between the evaluation or research objectives and the summary findings derived from the raw.

What is inductive and deductive approach to research the difference between inductive and deductive reasoning to research with clear example, figure and some. What is the difference between inductive and deductive research in this lecture, i talk about the research process and the stage at which you begin with an. In logic, we often refer to the two broad methods of reasoning as the deductive and inductive approaches deductive reasoning works from the more general to the more specific sometimes this is informally called a top-down approach we might begin with thinking up a theory about our topic of interest we then narrow.
In contrast to quantitative content analysis techniques, which enable researchers to derive quantitative measures from non-numerical information sources, inductive content analysis is well-suited for research where few or no previous studies of the phenomenon in question exist the inductive approach enables researchers. You may have heard or read the position taken that quantitative methods are for deductive research, while qualitative methods are for inductive research while this is often the way these methods are used, it is by no means the case that these methods are or should always be linked with those logical approaches.
The main difference between inductive and deductive approaches to research is that whilst a deductive approach is aimed and testing theory, an inductive approach is concerned with the generation of new theory emerging from the data. This discussion paper compares and contrasts inductive and deductive research approaches as described by trochim (2006) and plano clark and creswell ( 2007) it also examines the exploratory and confirmatory approaches by onwueghuzie and leech (2005) with respect to the assumption each holds about the nature.
