What is quantitative research approach?
The deductive or quantitative research approach is concerned with situations in which data can be analyzed in terms of numbers. The researcher primarily uses post positivist claims for developing knowledge (i.e., cause and effect thinking, reduction to specific variables and hypotheses and questions, uses of measurement and observation), employs strategies of inquiry such as experiments and questionnaires, and Data Collection via predetermined instruments that yield Statistical Analysis. Its results are more readily analyzed and interpreted. The most common quantitative research methods are experiments and questionnaires.
