Research Draft Two Assignment Instructions

Begin this assignment by reviewing each of the questions/prompts below and provide as much detail as possible for each. Submit this Word document with each of your completed answers directly after each question/prompt (do not delete subheadings, questions, or prompts).

Remember, even though there may be some repetition from one draft to another, you should not expect to re-submit the exact same work for subsequent drafts. Even if your instructor does not provide specific feedback for revision on any one subsection in a draft, you should continually be working to improve each draft by enhancing your research design acumen through organizing your thoughts and making better associations among key components as well as improving clarity and thoroughness.

 

1. Research Topic: (Based on feedback you’ve received, restate your revised topic and/or title here.)

 

 

2. Unit of Analysis: (Based on your topic and using information from presentations and readings, identify the unit of analysis. Keep in mind the connection should be clear in either your topic, research question and/or hypothesis.)

 

 

3. Variables: (For the topic you have selected, tell me how your variable (s) could be measured. What is the dependent variable? If applicable, what is (are) the independent variable (s)? Do you have any intervening variables? If so, what are they?)

 

 

4. Research Question: (Using the information from presentations and readings, place your research question here. If you have more than one, include them here as well.)

 

5. General Research Design: (In this section, tell me whether you are thinking about using a qualitative or quantitative approach and why. A mixed-methods is not recommended due to limited time in this course however, if you are sure a mixed-methods approach is appropriate, tell me why. Then choose either a., b., or c. below to complete.)

a. Theories FOR QUALITATIVE DESIGNS: (If you are planning to use a qualitative approach, identify and briefly summarize the theoretical or conceptual framework you could use to guide your study.)

b. Theories FOR QUANTITATIVE DESIGNS: (If you are going to use a quantitative approach, identify and briefly summarize the theory that you could test in your study.)

c. Theories FOR MIXED-METHODs DESIGNS: (If you are planning to use a mixed-methods approach, briefly summarize the theoretical or conceptual framework you could use and why this approach is appropriate for your study. Will you give the quantitative or qualitative paradigm priority? Why?)

 

 

6. Hypothesis: (If you are taking a quantitative approach, state your hypothesis as either H0, H, or H1.)

 

7. Statement of Purpose: (Using information from presentations and readings, write your statement of purpose here.)

 

8. References: (For each of the domains below, list at least one scientific research study (not previously used) that informs the same domain of your research proposal. All sources must be peer-reviewed and references in APA format.)

a. Scientific study about your topic content (or closely related):

b. Scientific study that uses a research design you think you can use for your proposal:

c. Scientific study that uses a theoretical framework or conceptual model that associates well with your topic and research design:
