lecture note: Introduction to psychology and Research methods chapter 1 · 1 In the scientific method, systematic observation is used - How is the to test hypotheses.
Scientists are engaged in explaining and understanding how the world around them works, and they are able to do so by coming up with theories that generate hypotheses that are testable and falsifiable. Theories that stand up to their tests are retained and refined, while those that do not are discarded or modified. In this way, research enables scientists to separate fact from simple opinion.
Research method is only one phase in that research process, and possibly the easiest and most structured one. Research Methodology Research methodology refers to the strategies that researchers use to ensure that their work can be critiqued, repeated, and adapted. These strategies guide the choices researchers make with respect to sampling, data collection, and analysis.
