FINAL RESEARCH PROPOSAL
Your Final Research Proposal should be submitted in the classroom through the assignment link as a Word document. This Word document is to be uploaded to this assignment as an attachment.
Please note: Your FINAL research proposal will consist of the following sections: title page, abstract, table of contents, introduction, literature review, hypothesis/problem statement, research design/methodology, definitions, references and appendix (if applicable).
This proposal will include all of the sections in your first proposal and it will include the additional research design section. It is expected that you will have incorporated the instructor feedback from your week 4 proposal and continue to build upon your draft. The exact length of the paper will depend on the design selected in light of the demands of the research question; for example, survey research designs should include a copy of the proposed survey, and experimental designs should detail methods for random selection and assignment. You must demonstrate a goodness-of-fit between design and question, as well as rigor, variously defined. The demands of the research design will become clearer as the course progresses.
About the Research Design Section: Your research design will be the â€œstep by stepâ€ directions that would enable a researcher to carry out and execute your research should you be unable to conduct the study yourself. Think of this as directions from how to get to point A to point B. This detail is necessary as it demonstrates that you understand how to best do your research.
The paper is to be in APA format and the body of the paper is to be between 12 and 20 pages. The body of the paper does not include the title page, table of contents, appendix or references. The paper will be based on a 100-point scale. This is to be of high quality, free of spelling and grammatical errors, and of original work. Plagiarism will be dealt with harshly.
AT NO TIME ARE YOU AUTHORIZED TO CONDUCT RESEARCH, IMPLEMENT SURVEYS OR CONDUCT INTERVIEWS RELATED TO THIS RESEARCH PROJECT. THIS IS A PROPOSAL FOR RESEARCH; AND YOU WILL NOT ACTUALLY CARRY OUT THE RESEARCH AS PART OR THIS COURSE.
