Write a paper (750-1,000 words) in which you present a clearly articulated argument for whether a qualitative or quantitative research methodology is the best approach to answer the potential dissertation research questions and address the problem statement you drafted in a previous course. Include the following in your paper:
- A literature-supported discussion identifying the critical attributes of the selected methodology (qualitative or quantitative).
- A literature-supported rationale that clearly articulates why the critical attributes of the selected methodology are the best or appropriate fit for the stated problem and research questions. Cite specific examples where a similar methodology was used to answer similar research questions or to address a similar problem statement.
- A literature-supported rationale that clearly articulates why the opposing methodology (qualitative or quantitative) is not appropriate for the study.
- A concluding statement that clearly affirms the methodological choice (qualitative or quantitative).
