In lieu of a final exam, students will submit a 5-7 page (1000 – 1500 words) Final Research Proposal (25% of your grade) that represents a synthesis of all the work you have been conducting on your proposal all semester.
Drawing on research proposal blogs and peer feedback, lectures, along with the content from Creswell book, students are to develop a formal research proposal as the culminating project for INTS 434.
Proposals should follow the formatting conventions of APA 7th edition ( ) and include both in-text citations and a formal ‘References’ section at the end of the paper. Papers should be proofread and be free of typos and grammatical issues.
Please make use of the checklists in the Creswell chapters noted below for each section of your proposal to ensure you are addressing all elements of each section as appropriate in a formal research paper (for example, rather than just relying on what you think typically goes into an introduction, the introduction section of a formal research proposal must address several key questions as outlined in Creswell).
You will not get full credit if your paper does demonstrate that you have reviewed Creswell and placed appropriate information in each section outlined below.
Your paper should include the following sections:
Title and Abstract: Title and abstract (usually 50-100 words) should be informative, succinct, and offer specific details about the issue, variables, context, and proposed methods of the study.
Introduction (Creswell Chapter 5): Your paper should present a significant research issue related to a relevant social issue (note: if you are having trouble narrowing your issue, read current peer-reviewed studies on the topic – they will really help you with scope and specificity). Provide a detailed description of the significance of the issue and how the proposed study will contribute to knowledge and practice. Proposals should be clearly supported from the research and theoretical literature, and the purpose of the study needs to be clearly stated.
Literature Review (Creswell Chapter 2): Your literature review should present prior studies done on topics related to your area of inquiry. Your literature review integrates critical and logical details from the peer-reviewed theoretical and research literature and includes your own voice. Each key research component is grounded to the literature. Attention is given to different perspectives on the topic. At least FIVE peer-reviewed articles should be cited and reviewed in your literature review.
Purpose Statement/ Research Questions (Creswell Chapter 6 & 7): Indicates why you want to do the study and what you intend to accomplish. It sets the objectives, the intent, or the major idea of a proposal or a study. Your research question(s) narrow the purpose statement to what will actually be done and should be clearly identifiable, and appropriate to your selected methodology (see Creswell p. 119/124/or 127).
Description of Methods (Creswell Chapter 8, 9, or 10): The methods section includes detailed information about sampling strategy and recruitment of participants; types of data to be collected (numbers or narratives); instruments used (surveys, interview protocols); steps of data collection and a description of how data will be analyzed or interpreted.
To Give Detail On What Topic I have Chosen For The Paper, I have attached a file containing all of the blogs I have submitted on the topic. PLEASE look at the blogs, include all of the information I have gathered myself including the sources, find your own sources, and follow the rubric by detail (talk about Creswall).
