The Epistemological Foundations of Quantitative Research Concept Map
The concept map of the epistemological foundations of quantitative research refers to beliefs about knowledge and how knowledge is constructed. One of the philosophical assumptions influences the methodologies and methods that researchers think are appropriate (Crotty, 1998; Lather, 2006). Epistemology influences all aspects of the research process, from embedded assumptions about what is known to developing theories, research questions, and study designs (Pallas, 2001; Collins, 1990). Epistemologies influence how research is interpreted and understood within a research community (Pallas, 2001), as illustrated in this concept map of the epistemological foundations of quantitative research.
