determine repetition in themes that have been uncovered in the iterative process of this design.

Grounded Theory is a research design for cultivating theory that is grounded in information that is methodically and thoroughly collected and examined (Corbin & Strauss, 1990). Grounded Theory’s main focus is on generating a theory, or modifying an existing theory from the information that is being studied. This design therefore utilizes an inductive rather than a deductive methodology, because it forms understandings from disparate types of data – it is a means of discovering theory from data (The Grounded Theory Institute, 2008). One of the hallmarks of grounded theory is its focus on developing a theory from the data and interviews conducted. The focus is on allowing participants to tell their stories to gather data rich in context, background, and motivations.
For example, the researcher may begin by asking a question or series of focused questions to participants with the intent and fore-planning being the creation of a theory regarding some aspect of life. The course of examination and data analysis provides the researcher with the information necessary to begin to cultivate a theory regarding the questions that the researcher is asking. Once a theory is built, the researcher’s next step is to determine and further understand what is being studied. This becomes a process of repeatedly and repetitively collecting and analyzing further data and participating in a process that is referred to as constant comparative analysis, which results in themes that have evolved from the analysis. This analysis continues until the researcher attains what is referred to as saturation. This is the final step in the process of this design in which no new information, concepts, or perspectives are found in the data that has been collected. This is referred to as saturation, and when saturation is accomplished the researcher is able to determine repetition in themes that have been uncovered in the iterative process of this design.
Be sure to review all previously assigned resources carefully. You are expected to apply the information from these resources when you prepare your assignments.
For this task, you will expand the framework of your understanding of qualitative design, and then develop a set of questions intended for a grounded theory study.
Propose one overarching question (on your research topic interest that you presented in Week 1) and four sub-questions, which will result in open-ended responses that will address context, background, and motivations of your participants.
Then, write brief conclusions of your thoughts on asking personal questions. For example, what ethical considerations must be addressed to have this type of relationship with a participant?
