How do you formulate a hypothesis?



Hypothesis needs to be structured before the data-gathering and interpretation phase of the research:

  • A well-grounded hypothesis indicates that the researcher has sufficient knowledge in the area to undertake the investigation.
  • The hypothesis gives direction to the collection and interpretation of data.

Hypothesis must be:

  • It must have explanatory power.
  • It must state the expected relationship between variables.
  • It must be testable.
  • It should be consistent with the existing body of knowledge.
  • It should be stated as simply and concisely as possible.
