Exploratory and formal studies

Exploratory studies are designed toward loose structures with an objective of learning more about a subject so that hypotheses may be obtained for further investigation or research. A formal study continues from an exploratory study in that involves precise procedures and data sources and it requires that the researcher and sponsor both have some understanding of the hypotheses involved; the formal study generally tests hypotheses posed for the solution of a problem.
