The research designs may be roughly categorized as ‘Observational’ or ‘Experimental’. The experimental studies are done on variables whose control lies in the researcher’s hand. In an observational study, the researcher observes things as they happen. In experimental studies, the researcher observes the findings in different studies by manipulating independent variables and records the resultant variation in dependent variables.
