INTRODUCTION
The present report is based on finding out the value of the research approach which is
been used by the students in their research project. Since the researches are the shadow of the
approaches, which tells the learner whether the research is appropriate or not(Knights, 2015).
Thus this report will make the learner know whether the approach used for the project study has
been appropriate to draw conclusions or not.
MAIN BODY
Ontological And Epistemological Assumptions Of The Interpretivisim
As far as research project is concerned it includes framing the recommendations and
findings by analyzing the data collected. But there are two assumptions which have never been
talked about in past with respect to the approaches used. The two assumptions are Ontological
and epistemological both these assumptions have their own meaning through which the research
approach is justified. When talked about Ontological, it is the study of reality, i.e this particular
assumption deals with the theory of being there, it talks about the present scenario(Nightingale,
2016). It is concerned with questioning that what is with the nature of existence. Both the terms
Ontological and epistemological are related they can't be segregated. If you talked of
constructing a building then building construction meaning is to talk of the reality.
Ontological means the reality and Epistemological means the objectivity. It is seen that
reality is often taken to imply objectivity. Thus it can be noted that for the purpose of conducting
the research the approach used in the research have both the aspects which shows reality and
objectivity of the data collected and also make the people build better perceptions about the data
undertaken in the research. The data collected can be quantitative data or the qualitative data,
irrespective of that the data is analyzed from both the point of view which is reality and
objectivity(Platenkamp and Botterill, 2013). Through any of the research approaches data
collected is assumed to be real as the ontological assumptions are there and with that the data is
also seen as objective data which can be showed in the numbers. Epistemological assumptions
mainly deals with the knowledge and possibility of happening of the thing. Like a probability of
the chances of getting out of batsmen is not known thus here also this type of game takes place.
