Importance of Formulating Clear Research Problems

Slide Note

Addressing a research problem is crucial in research endeavors as it guides the process, helps in setting objectives, and determines the direction of the study. Formulating a well-defined research problem aids in understanding the research procedure, clarifying objectives, designing the research process, and laying a strong foundation for the study. This process is essential for both practical and theoretical research to contribute to knowledge and facilitate change.

Presentation Transcript

  1. Introduction A research problem is a specific issue or gap in existing knowledge that you aim to address in your research. You may choose to look for practical problems aimed at contributing to change, or theoretical problems aimed at expanding knowledge. Some research will do both of these things, but usually the research problem focuses on one or the other. The type of research problem you choose depends on your broad topic of interest and the type of research you think will fit best.

  2. What is a research problem? A research problem is a specific question, problem, or difficulty that needs to be investigated or analyzed. It is a concise statement that expresses the difference between what is currently known and what needs to be known or the difference between a current situation and a desired state. Examining research problems helps to identify the key concepts and terms of research. A research problem should be clear, concise, and specific enough to guide the process and contribute to the definition of research project objectives, methods, and outcomes. It is the foundation of any research project, and a well-formulated research problem is required for any research study to be successful.

  3. Advantages of formulating a research problem Understanding the research procedure- Writing research problems helps in a more comprehensive understanding of the research procedure in a better way. Many researchers think that formulating a research problem is simple, but that is not true. The researcher needs to put a lot of effort into creating a specific problem and then understand the research procedure.

  4. Determining the research objective A research problem helps to understand the intention and goals of the research. The methodology cannot be defined without a clear research problem. Design the research process A research problem helps you identify the approach you must take for the research activity. It helps in the identification of each step you must take to do your research the sampling strategy, the research design, the research analysis, and the research instruments to be used.

  5. Lays the foundation for research Formulating a good research problem is compared to laying the foundation of a building. If the research problem is well-identified, you will face fewer hiccups during the research process.
