Share and discuss KIN 100W Name: Olivia Palmer Exercise #1: Research Questions 1. Compare and contrast the styles of each article. How are their research questions different or similar? Identify unique characteristics of each. MMA Article Subjective paradigm Uses figurational sociology theory Uses interviews as their method Thematic analysis Text formed for their results/findings Uses “participants” Unique characteristic: Uses more of a narrative approach, though what is written is still fact and research related. It is not the typical research paper that goes through “abstract”, “findings”, “discussion”, etc. This article also ties in some history and talks about social norms. Soccer Article Objective paradigm Lab controlled experiments Uses numbers, graphs and tables to interpret and display results/findings Uses “subjects” Unique characteristic: This article is written in a strict research paper form and displays most of the results in quantitative forms. There is a small interpretation section at the end when it discusses “practical applications.” 2. What are the strengths and weaknesses of using these different methodologies? Strengthssubjective Weaknessessubjective Strengthsobjective Weaknessesobjective Ability to ask big More work Smaller, more precise Not much room for questions Can be interpreted questions interpretation, findings Use of “participants” differently by different Results are supported by are generally “hard” who have a willingness to people (a lot of room for numbers and are more results participate in the study interpretation) “definitive” Use of “subjects” 3. Come up with: a. 3 research questions that would be best answered via qualitative methods 1. How does pain tolerance affect a gymnast’s intrinsic motivation? 2. How do fitness and physique competitions affect or contribute to the development of body dysmorphic disorder? 3. How does comfort and familiarity of an athlete’s regular practice field/gym/studio/etc. affect their ability to perform as well in nonfamiliar territory? b. 3 research questions that would be best answered via quantitative methods 1. Do “women only” gym’s positively affect fitness outcomes more so than mixed gender gym environments? 2. How does dynamic stretching prior to strength training compare to static stretching to decrease probability of injury? 3. Does “fasted” cardio increase weight loss for the slightly overweight, nonathlete individual?
