On this part of chapter 3: Data Gathering Instruments and Techniques the proponents of the study must state all the techniques and instrument they used to complete the study. These techniques and instruments helped the proponents to gather data and information about the study. There are many tools that the proponents can use, like sample there are many sampling method that the researcher can use but you need to choose what is the best to your study.
Note: I only used bullet form for formatting this post. The items on the bullet falls on the main category.
Data Gathering Instruments and Techniques: Faculty Loading
Data Gathering Instruments and Techniques
The proponents used different instruments in order to gather data for the development of the proposed software; the instruments used are techniques which consist of observation and instruments which consist of interview and evaluation.
Sampling. Concerns with the selection of individual observations intended to yield some knowledge about a population of concerns.
- Purposive Sampling. Is constructed to serve a very specific need or purpose, it is use when you want to access a particular subset of people. Respondents are selected because of their characteristic.
Techniques. The proponents used different techniques to gather important information that will be needed in the development of software.
- Observation. This device was used by proponents to identify the problems, difficulty encountered by the user by observing how the present manual faculty loading and class scheduling works.
Instruments. The instruments used by the proponents are questionnaire and evaluation. The instrument will help the proponents identify problems and how to improve the existing system
- Interview. This device was used by the proponents to identify the problems, difficulty encountered by the user by observing how the present manual faculty loading and class scheduling works. (See Appendix B)
- Evaluation Form. This type of data gathering instrument where in the respondent will evaluate the proposed system. Criteria were accuracy, efficiency, reliability, conciseness and user- friendliness.(See Appendix C)
