An analytical model is a set of variables and their interrelationships designed to represent, in whole or in part, some real system or process.
In verbal models, the variables and their relationships are stated in prose form. Such models may be mere restatements of the main tenets of a theory.
Research Questions and Hypotheses
• Research questions (RQs) are refined statements of the specific components of the problem.
• A hypothesis (H) is an unproven statement or proposition about a factor or phenomenon that is of interest to the researcher. Often, a hypothesis is a possible answer to the research question.
