Research paper


  • You      will review both quantitative and qualitative research. The topic is up to      you as long as you choose a peer-reviewed, academic research piece. I      suggest choosing a topic that is at least in the same family as your      expected dissertation topic so that you can start viewing what is out      there. There are no hard word counts or page requirements as long as you      cover the basic guidelines. You must submit original work, however, and a      paper that returns as a large percentage of copy/paste to other sources will      not be accepted. (Safe Assign will be used to track/monitor your      submission for plagiarism. Submissions with a Safe Assign match of more      than 25% will not be accepted.)
              Please use APA formatting and include the following information:
    Introduction/Background:      Provide context for the research article. What led the author(s) to write      the piece? What key concepts were explored? Were there weaknesses in prior      research that led the author to the current hypothesis or research      question?
    Methodology: Describe      how the data was gathered and analyzed. What research questions or      hypotheses were the researcher trying to explore? What statistical      analysis was used?
    Study Findings and Results: What      were the major findings from the study? Were there any limitations?
    Conclusions:      Evaluate the article in terms of significance, research methods,      readability and the implications of the results. Does the piece lead into      further study? Are there different methods you would have chosen based on      what you read? What are the strengths and weaknesses of the article in      terms of statistical analysis and application? (This is where a large part      of the rubric is covered.)
