Example text

What if my research does little to inform policy makers and/or educators about practice? One of the major challenges for researchers is to refrain from overstating the importance of their study by making assumptions about what the results may tell the reading audience. ” Discussions with experienced researchers and practitioners can help you uncover your assumptions, so that you can acknowledge them without relying on them.

You should be able to verify each of your claims with primary and secondary sources; if you cannot, consider whether it is a bias or an assumption. For example, suppose I were to begin with the following statement: 39 40 Debra L. ” The first assumption is that simultaneous interpreting is effective in legal settings. Can this statement be justified? What is unique about legal settings that would make this question interesting? The second assumption is that my research questions will inform policy and practice.

The extent of theoretical engagement may also depend on the researcher’s personal intellectual preferences and academic socialization, but the mutual interdependence between theory and empirical data should never be in doubt. Based on this assumption, a relevant distinction regarding the interplay of theory and data can be made in terms of the type and direction of logical reasoning used in developing a fuller understanding, or “better theory” of the phenomenon. Inductive reasoning, in which specific observations are made in search of patterns that can lead to tentative explanatory hypotheses, would be associated with the original approach to empirical science as practiced by Isaac Newton.
