Concept of Research
Research is considered to be more formal, systematic and intensive process of carrying on a scientific method of analysis. Scientific method in solving problems may be an observation, analysis and conclusion or observation, problem identification and hypothesis formulation by formal application. Research may be defined as the systematic and objective analysis and recording of controlled observation that may lead to the development of generalisations, principles, or theories, resulting in prediction and possibly ultimately control of an event.

THE OBJECTIVES/AIMS OF RESEARCH IN EDUCATION.
Research is applied to solve problems in a certain area.
It helps the learners to gain the knowledge and skills.
It can also be used to simplify the process of teaching and learning.
The research conducted can be used to test the validity and be used to develop new theories.
STAGES OF RESEARCH
Research is scientific and systematic process of collecting, analysing and interpreting data basing on a certain problem or phenomena, Research work also is the scientific and systematic process of finding the truth concerning a specific phenomena or problem. Normally research work use scientific stages and finding the solution of the identified phenomena such stages are Identification of problem, Pre-survey, Literature review, Formulation of hypothesis, Research design, Data collection, Analysis of data, Hypothesis testing, Data interpretation and preservation, Report writing.
The Importance of Research in Daily Life
Assess the importance of research in daily life
The main purpose of research is to discover answers to different questions through application of scientific procedures. All fields of studies require research to develop their theories both in natural sciences.Countries with manpower in research and development they are far more developed than others.The purpose of research is to bridge gap between what is known and what is not known.
