A case study on the technique of simple observation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Conducting scientific research through time tested methodologies like questionnaires and interviews could be expensive and time consuming. In the past two decades, several researchers in the field of behavioural science tried out a less expensive option: observation. Appreciating the positive attributes of the tool, the author employed the method in a post-implementation evaluation of the North American Skyway System, during the summer of 1990, and concludes that observation could be effectively used as a tool in various quantitative research works, where funds are limited.
