Abstract

Empirical Research is a research that based on experimentation or observation, i.e. Evidence. Such research is often conducted to answer a specific question or test a hypothesis.

1. Theory.

2. Design.

3. Evaluation.

4. Implementation.

Objective:

• Capture contextual data and complexity.

• Learn from the collective experience of the field.

• Identify, explore, confirm and advance theoretical concepts.

• Enhance educational design.

• Combine rigorous research thorough case study.

• Foster environments to enhanced understanding.

• Relevance of theory is proved by ability to work in a real world.

Benefits:

• Establish relationship between intervention and behavioural response.

• Understand and respond to dynamics of situation.

• Respect of contextual differences.

• Build up what is already known to work.

• Meet accepted professionals of research.

Empirical cycle:

[pic]

Observation: The collecting and organisation of empirical facts.

Induction: Formulating hypothesis.

Deduction: deducting consequences of the hypothesis as testable predictions.

Testing: testing the hypothesis with new empirical material.

Evaluation: evaluating the outcome of testing.

What is Empirical research?

Empirical research methods are the class of research methods in which empirical observations or data are collected on order to answer a particular research questions. While primarily used in academic research, they can also be used in answering particular questions.

The popularity of empirical methods in software engineering researches is in the rise. Surveys, Experiments, Metrics, Case studies, and field studies are examples of empirical methods used to investigate both in software engineering processes and products.

• Research questions.

• Theoretical models....
