Research The goal of this assignment is to challenge you to integrate and apply majority of the information that you will learn through this class over the course of the semester to develop a research proposal. The research proposal can be quantitative or qualitative. Once you have identified a problem, you will then undertake a brief literature review on the topic and come up with objectives/research questions that your proposal will seek to address/answer. You then select an appropriate methodology based on consultation with the instructor. The mode of data collection may include surveys, interviews with key stakeholders, focus groups, or analysis of existing data, among others.
Paper should be 7 pages not including reference page Your research proposal will typically involve: (1) identifying the problem; (2) describing the nature and extent of the problem; (3) conducting a literature review of the problem and what past studies have found with respect to your problem; (4) identifying gaps in the literature and state the objective(s)/research question(s) that the proposal will be addressing; (5) proposing a method for that you will want to use to carry out the research and explaining the process in detail; (6) proposing a method that you will use in collecting the data; and (7) discussing possible implications that could arise if you are able to carry out the proposed research.
Please follow the outline listed below to structure your paper and ensure that you are including all of the relevant information.
I. Introduction and Background (5 pts.) a. Introduce the problem and briefly state the magnitude of the problem. Identify the gap in the literature
II. Literature Review (15 pts.) a. What else has been done in terms of researching this or similar problems and what has past studies found regarding this problem? b. What has studies found c. Where else has your methodology been used? d. What can we learn from what others have done regarding this problem?
III. Objective(s)/Research question(s)/hypothesis(es) (10 pts.) a. What are your objectives, or what questions are you trying to answer, or what are your hypotheses?*
IV. Methodology (50 pts.) Come up with a study plan a. What will be the sample size b. What sampling method will you be using (i.e., probability, nonprobability, etc.) c. Design (i.e., qualitative, quantitative, exploratory, survey, quasi-, or experimental design, etc.) d.How will you collect the data
V. Implications (5 pts.) a. What are some of the possible implications that could results from undertaken this research?
