Water is a basic resources required by organisms for survival. Various activities have caused water quality to remain contaminated. These problems are present in the Malacca River, Malacca state. This research study has been carried out based on methodology framework review towards water quality assessment in Malacca River. Methodology can be divided into three processes, namely the planning process, applying process, and analyzing process. The planning process includes the design to collect and gather, analyze, and present the data in result form, for example qualitative or quantitative analysis, and primary data or secondary data. Applying process refers to the methods used to collect and gather data for analysis; for example, primary data will require researcher to collect raw samples data from the site, and secondary data will require researcher to collect data from government departments and institutions, the private sector, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and so on. Lastly, the analyzing process refers to the raw data undergoing analysis to provide result and information; for example, primary raw data and secondary raw data will need to be analyzed in a laboratory, in-situ analysis, GIS analysis, remote sensing analysis, other system analysis, and so on, depending on the objective of research study. If there were no mistakes or errors before, during and after collecting data, the results and information generated can determine the achievement of objectives or hypotheses of a research study.
