Types of Quantitative Research
There are mainly two (2) types of quantitative research which both have a subdivision. Experimental research divides into three (3) design while non-experimental research divides into four (4).

It is a research study with manipulation of control of the independent variable, presence of control group and randomization of samples.
- Quasi experimental design
An intervention study that may not have a control group and/or subjects may not be randomly assigned.
- Pre-experimental design
Pre-experimental design is a type of experimental design wherein the researcher has little control over the research.
- Survey studies
Facilitate the identification of characteristics of certain population based on data gathered on certain variables.
- Correlation studies
Examine the degree of relationship between variables.
- Comparative studies
