SMALL RESEARCH PROPOSAL
The purpose of this assignment is to describe how you would research a particular topic/hypothesis. You will not be required to conduct the actual research.
Part A: (required by Thursday, Day Four of Module 3 to the Small Research Proposal Discussion Room, 0 point)
State your research question and hypothesis. The topic should be business-related. The hypothesis should not be obvious or innocuous. It should typically be a proposed explanation of a problem or proposed solution which can be supported/not supported by measurable statistical data. The research variables will be definable, multi-level, and measurable by statistics. Students will need faculty approval in Module 3 before moving forward with their research proposal. (Submit to Small Research Proposal Discussion Room by Thursday, Day Four, and comment on the work of your classmates.) (required). Students are strongly encouraged to submit parts B and C to the Small Research Proposal Discussion Room for peer review and comment during Modules Four and Five.
Part B: (recommended by Thursday, Day Four of Module 4 to the Small Research Proposal Discussion Room). Students are strongly encouraged to submit parts B and C to the Small Research Proposal Discussion Room for instructor feedback, peer review and comment during Modules Four and Five.
1) Describe your population.
2) Develop three scholarly resources in support of your research problem and hypothesis. These resources should come from scholarly journals, as opposed to Wikipedia or random internet sources, and should help underpin the theoretical framework of your research problem.
3) Suppose that you are going to test this hypothesis with a sample. Select a sampling technique to collect and test data from your population. Justify why this sampling technique is appropriate. List the number of groups needed in your sample.
4) Develop three good survey questions or describe your experiment. Why will this process lead to valid and reliable data?
Part C: (recommended by Thursday, Day Four of Module 5 to the Small Research
Proposal Discussion Room). Students are strongly encouraged to submit parts B and C to the Small Research Proposal Discussion Room for instructor feedback, peer review and comment during Modules Four and Five.
1) List all variables involved in the hypotheses.
2) Specify data levels of all involved variables.
3) Select appropriate statistical techniques that can be used to test your hypotheses. Justify it.
