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?
