What is the Difference Between the Theoretical and the Conceptual Framework?

Many students, both in the undergraduate and graduate levels, have difficulty discriminating the theoretical from the conceptual framework. This requires a good understanding of both frameworks in order to conduct a good investigation. This article explains the two concepts in easily understandable language.

Many graduating college students and even graduate students have difficulty coming up with the conceptual framework and the theoretical framework of their thesis, a required section in thesis writing that serves as the students’ map on their first venture into research. The conceptual framework is almost always confused with the theoretical framework of the study.

What is the difference between the conceptual and the theoretical framework?
A conceptual framework is the researcher’s idea on how the research problem will have to be explored. This is founded on the theoretical framework, which lies on a much broader scale of resolution. The theoretical framework dwells on time tested theories that embody the findings of numerous investigations on how phenomena occur.

The theoretical framework provides a general representation of relationships between things in a given phenomenon. The conceptual framework, on the other hand, embodies the specific direction by which the research will have to be undertaken. Statistically speaking, the conceptual framework describes the relationship between specific variables identified in the study. It also outlines the input, process and output of the whole investigation. The conceptual framework is also called the research paradigm.

Examples of the Theoretical and the Conceptual Framework
The difference between theoretical framework and conceptual framework can be further clarified by the following examples on both concepts:

Theoretical Framework: Stimulus elicits response.
Conceptual Framework: New teaching method improves students’ academic performance.
Notice in the illustrative example that the theoretical framework basically differs from the conceptual framework in terms of scope. The theoretical framework describes a broader relationship between things. When stimulus is applied, response is expected. The conceptual framework is much more specific in defining this relationship. The conceptual framework specifies the variables that will have to be explored in the investigation. In this example, the variable “teaching method” represents stimulus while the “students’ academic performance” represents the response. The variables make clear the kind of statistical treatment that will have to be used to analyze the relationship.

How can students come up with their theoretical and conceptual framework?
In order to come up with their own set of theoretical and conceptual framework that will guide the conduct of the research, students have to review literature pertaining to their chosen research topic. Students need to read a lot and find out what has been studied so far in their respective fields and come up with their own synthesis of the literature. They should look for gaps in knowledge and identify what questions need to be answered or what problems need to be given solutions. Thus, they will be able to formulate their own conceptual framework to serve as guide in their research venture.

Abia Polytechnic ASUP Suspends Strike; to Resume Monday

The Abia State Polytechnic chapter of the Academic Staff Union of Polytechnics today announced the suspension of its 12 day old strike.

The union had on August 12 embarked on a strike following the failure of the governing council and management to pay lecturers’ salary arrears.

The ASUP Chairman, Precious Nwakodo, said in Aba that the strike was suspended because the authorities of the polytechnic paid two month arrears.

Mr. Nwakodo said that work would resume on Monday, August 25.

He said that the governing council had, in a letter dated July 10, 2014 and signed by its Chairman, Christopher Enweremadu, promised to pay two out of five months’ arrears.

The chairman expressed gratitude to the state government for the payment, adding that the remaining three months arrears would be paid when its subvention was released.

300 Level Student of Covenant University Kidnapped and Murdered

kidnapped covenant university studentA 300 level Electrical Engineering student of the Covenant University, Otta in Ogun State, John Chinedu Okere, has been murdered and left in the pool of his blood by friends, who demanded for ransom from his parents.

According to reports, Chinedu, 20, left home Wednesday morning, August 6, 2014, to a Hospital in Yaba, Lagos for medical reasons and never returned.

He reportedly left home with about N6000 and that was the last time he was seen alive.

The mysterious disappearance of Chinedu caused tension as the parents ran helter-skelter in search of him to no avail.

They gathered from some family members that one of his friends called on phone earlier that morning to tell him to meet him at an undisclosed hotel.

At about mid-day, the victim’s father, Jude Okere, received an SMS notifying him that Chinedu had been kidnapped.

Later, he received a phone call from a hidden number demanding N10 million ransom for the release of his son. The caller allegedly threatened to kill the victim if the parents refused to comply as the line went dead.

Chinedu’s father said “At about mid-day, I received an SMS that John had been kidnapped. Later, I received a phone call from a hidden number. The caller said they had my son, Chinedu and demanded N10 million as ransom threatening to kill him if we refuse to comply. Immediately, I inquired who the caller was, the line went dead. My wife and I quickly reported the case to the Divisional Police Station at Sabo, Yaba.”

After the case was reported to the Police at Sabo, Yaba, it was later transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Ikeja the next day where investigations commenced.

It was learnt that initially when the whole issue started, the family of the victim felt it was a kidnap that would just be resolved but unfortunately, as events continued to unfold, it turned out to be a premeditated murder. Shockingly, the decomposed corpse of Chinedu was discovered in one of the rooms at ‘DE Homes Hotel’ located in Ejigbo by one of their staff, two days later.

According to reports, the Manager of the hotel went to Ejigbo Divisional Police Station on Friday, 8, 2014, to report the case of murder and investigation began.

A reliable source in the hotel told Vanguard that early Wednesday morning, the prime suspect, Okorocha Michael along with another young man simply identified as Okey, checked into the hotel with the name Christian. “He booked the room for three days with the name Christian. He claimed he was a youth corps member who wanted to write exams and would be there from that Wednesday to Friday. He also said he was expecting his Cousin to join him in the hotel.

‘After booking, Michael left his friend Okey in the hotel and returned an hour before the victim, Chinedu arrived the hotel, which was at about 3pm that day. As soon as Chinedu arrived the hotel, Michael took him to the room. We don’t know what happened inside the room. However, it was later gathered that during their stay in the room, the suspect reportedly confronted the victim on some personal issues. The confrontation eventually led to a heated argument, which later led to the suspect strangulating the victim to death. On Friday, a hotel staff discovered the lifeless body of the young man and alerted the police.

The 24-year-old suspect, Okorocha Michael, who was arrested on Sunday, in a friend’s house around Ajah area in Lagos, is a graduate of Lagos City Polytechnic, Ikeja. He has been unemployed since he completed his youth service in February this year.

The Lagos state Police Command is currently investigating the case.
