Task 1: Critical Comparison of Research Tools, Methods and Sources

Before starting a Research we need to be clear about what we are looking for.

The important thing is that when a possible research topic is raised, the researcher asks three questions:

  • What do I want to investigate? (Definition of the problem),
  • What do I want to investigate him for? (Objectives)
  • How am I gonna find out? (Methodology).

The purpose of the methodology is to understand the research process and not the results.

Other skills that the designer may have is to develop their own methodologies. You should be able to choose the most suitable method for the research, such as the something you will give you and the techniques and tools you will use to obtain data.

Primary Resources Vs Secondary Resources

Primary research involves the study of a subject through firsthand observation and investigation’.


For the primary research for example you could have a file or folder notes from each contact can be separated by a contact sheet or document which gives the name of the person, the date and time you met and a contact number or address.

Secondary research involves the collection of information from studies that other researchers have made of a subject’
In the secondary research file or folder each page of notes or document can be headed by details of the publication in the same format that will be used in the bibliography – author and initials; date of publication; title of publication place of publication and publisher. If it is a journal article, remember to include the name of the journal the page numbers of the article and the volume and number of the journal. It is also useful to include the location of this publication so that it can be found easily if needed again (website or library shelf location).
