Research Proposal (3 Parts, Completed Paper, Presentation)

Students will be putting together a research proposal that utilizes a flexible design about a problem they would like to explore. Students are encouraged to choose a topic related to their program project so that the research completed will contribute to their overall applied project. Applied Research projects often are designed to answer practical questions and involve applying specific theories (Fixed Designs /Quantitative Studies) and findings to a specific real-world problem that a specific organization is experiencing. This course focuses on the use of flexible designs utilizing Qualitative methods of Phenomenology, Narrative, Grounded Theory, Case Study and Ethnography. While fixed designs and Quantitative methods will be reviewed, your proposal should be a flexible design using a Qualitative method of study.

Strategic Leadership (SL) degree culminates in a Case Study that is comprised of three parts to include:

1.Foundation of the Study

2.The Project

3.Application to Professional Practice

To be clear, for the purpose of Strategic Leadership (SL) degree, you will be writing a single Case Study for the Research Project (RP).

some schools traditionally have five parts to include: 1. Introduction 2. Background (Literature Review) 3. Methods 4. Results 5. Conclusion. Textbook readings for this class generally will follow the traditional concept of the five-part dissertation. In this class, students are going to complete parts 1 through 3 (Introduction, Background/Literature Review and Methods). Specific to this class, part 1 deals with the Introduction, part 2 deals with the Background (Literature Review) and part 3 covers Methods.

The students will complete a proposal only and will not actually complete the research project in this course. Students should incorporate the Merida: Christ-centered Exposition: Exalting Jesus in 1 & 2 Kings text in parts 1 and 2 of this paper as it relates to the chosen applied research topic. Each area of the project proposal will be discussed in further detail in class and will relate to the textbook chapters.

Regarding the textbooks chosen, Robson & McCartan: Real World Research and Creswell & Poth: Qualitative Inquiry & Research Design: Choosing Among Five Approaches, each will use slightly different terminology in their writings. Robson writes of flexible and fixed designs whereas Creswell references Qualitative and Quantitative methods. Generally speaking, flexible designs are aligned with Qualitative methods and fixed designs are aligned with Quantitative methods.

Part 1 – Project Justification (Introduction): Students will submit their research topic, problem statement, purpose statement, the importance of the study, the central question for conducting the research, research questions, nature of the study and definition of the key terms. Part 1 will be between five pages in length. Reference to the Read: Simple but Effective Problem Statements and Research Questions White Paper will be of great assistance.

Part 2 – Background (Literature Review): Students will discuss the search strategy and then conduct a review of the existing literature about this topic and write the literature review in APA format. The background will consist of 15 pages in length using a minimum of 10 academic references. Students should start researching and collecting scholarly references as soon as possible as this can be a very time-consuming process.

Part 3 – Project Approach (Methods): Students will identify the research process, how they will collect data, how they will analyze data, and the instrumentation used. This can include selecting what Qualitative research method to use, the research target (population and sample). Through a flexible design, using qualitative methods, a concept will be discussed. The methods sections will consist of five pages and will include two additional academic references on the methods chosen in addition to the textbooks.

Completed Final Project – Students should combine the previous three parts of the paper into a final research proposal. Students should update the sections based on the feedback from their instructor.

Final Project Presentation – Students will put together at least ten slides that discusses the major components of their presentation. A title slide and references slide are required utilizing APA format.

    Research Proposal

    You need to conduct some research (Qualitative/Quantitative or Mixed Methods in nature) related to your own interests or to serve the interests of some organization (employer/client/sponsor). Before you start writing a formal proposal, you (or your employer/client/sponsor) would like to gather some information about the problem as well as understand its importance.

    Choose your research topic thoughtfully, as this assignment will be part of your term paper.

    HERE ARE THE KEY PARTS OF THIS TERM PAPER (PART 1):

    Title of your research

    Make it intriguing –

    Introduction/Background

    Provide a brief description of what the proposed research topic is about and how you came to be interested in it, following the elements of a Proposal document.

    Statement of the Problem

    Detail the problem that you are considering. Write a Statement of the Problem following the elements of a Proposal document. Make sure you address the following questions as well:

    ●Why is this topic important?

    • Why does this research need to be conducted?

    Purpose of the Study

    Detail the purpose for your study. Write a purpose section following elements of a Proposal document. Make sure you address the following questions as well:

    ●How are you defining and delimiting the specific area of the research?

    ●What it is that you hope to learn by conducting this research?

    ●How might your research contribute to our understanding of the issue, or be useful?

    • Discuss the anticipated outcomes and benefits to the researcher, the organization, or society.
    • What is the scope of your research? Is the Scope reasonable?

    Research Question

    Provide focused research questions which will be the subject of your final Research Proposal. Draft the questions following section 4 of The elements of a Proposal document. Also provide a back-up question in case the first one does not pan out.

    Hypothesis

    If you decide to do Quantitative research you will have to provide Hypothesis which includes:

    • The original claim that your research is making i.e., Null hypothesis.
    • Alternative claim i.e., Alternative hypothesis
    • Test and verify the phenomenon that you are studying.

    MIND MAPING

    • Students are required to provide a spray diagram (mind map) in the appendix of part 1 submission
    • The mind map has to illustrate how the student worked with the topic and designed the main and sub-questions for their research
    • Mind map also has to elaborate the research interest of the students in particular dimension of their research topic

    Literature Review

    The purpose of literature review is to develop skills in finding valid literary resources for your research proposal. You will develop an annotated bibliography by doing searches of the literature on your chosen topic of interest. You will also design a literature map of the sources you have found for your Research Proposal.

    This part of your research proposal should be written in paragraphs, report format. All citations and references for this course are to be done in the APA style.

    Please note: Cite with in text citations all ideas, concepts, text, and data that are not your own. If you make a statement, back it up with a reference!

    1. Research a minimum of 15 relevant literature sources (focus on material available in digital format only for this course). Carefully choose your 15 “keepers” that are clearly related to your study. (Note: you might need to find 30 to “keep” only 15).
    2. Write a literature review section that summarizes what you found and evaluate the literature. State how the reviewed research results connected to your proposed study.
    3. Critique and analyze the similarities and differences among the articles (e.g. different or the same point of views? different or the same research methods? why? etc.). Identify the gaps in the literature and provide recommendations for what needs to be done to move forward in your research. You will be using the information in this section in the final research proposal as well.
    4. Design a literature map of the sources you have found for your Research Proposal. This map should help you organize your source materials in a way that will facilitate the organization and writing of your Literature Review.

    Note: For the final research proposal, you need to review more than 15 literature sources. Aim for at least 30.

    Note: Part 1 should be about 7-9 pages Maximum in length – excluding title page, literature mapping table, list of references and appendix. 5% deduction would be applied in case of excessive length. Late submission would result in 10% marks being deducted.

    Research Proposal

    Research Proposal

    PSYCH/610 Version 2

    1

    Create a topic of interest within psychology, then create a

    Research Proposal based on that topic

    Develop an original research study proposal and describe it in detail in a 10-12 page (APA style) paper. Include at least 10 scholarly references in your proposal. Use the following outline as a guide when writing your paper. Be sure to include detailed information on all of the topics listed below and use headings to organize your thoughts.

    1. Statement of the problem: Introduce the reader to the problem to be studied. Provide sufficient background information such that the reader has a grasp of the situation and its importance.

    2. Review of the literature: Provide the reader with a review of most relevant literature, beginning with general information, and narrowing the focus to the specific issues under consideration in the study.

    3. Purpose of the study: Identify why the study that you are proposing is needed.

    4. Hypotheses or research questions: List them as simple statements. Make sure they are measurable.

    5. Definition of terms: Operationally define terms the average reader may not know, or that have a specific meaning in your study.

    6. Assumptions: Identify issues you assume to be true in order for your study to be valid.

    7. Research methods and procedures

    a. Population: Describe the population sample to be studied

    b. Procedure: Discuss how the study will be carried out.

    c. Instruments: Describe the specific measurements (instruments) to be used to test each hypothesis (research question).

    d. Data Analysis: Describe the procedures you intend to use to analyze the data produced from your instruments, and how that would answer the hypotheses (research questions).

    e. Discussion: Since you are only proposing (not conducting) a research study, you will not have results; however, you can discuss potential outcomes. Review your hypothesis and discuss how this study will address it. For example, if the results allow you to reject the null hypothesis, what are the implications? What would happen if you fail to reject the null hypothesis? Discuss the implications of your proposed study, the limitations of your study, and future research ideas and directions.

    8. Implications: Provide a brief summary of your proposal and a powerful statement as to how your study would advance the field.

    9. References: Include at least 10 scholarly sources in your Reference section. Be sure to use APA style throughout your p
