    In both Qualitative  and quantitative research, hypothesis is needed. However hypothesis must be based on reasoning.


    I would like to ask: Is it possible to apply some statistical tests such as Chi-Square, t-test, etc. on a data sample without any hypotheses in place?

    I am doing a qualitative study where the data I have collected is mostly on a lickert scale. But I didn’t have any hypos formed both at the beginning of the study or at this point. All I had were my research questions. Your feedback will be highly appreciated.
