Psy-5107-week 8 – signature assignment: create a research proposal

signature assignment

For this task, you will pull together your learning from the previous assignments to create a quantitative or qualitative  research proposal in PowerPoint. Assume you will be presenting your proposal to the committee that decides who will receive funding for their study. The required components for your PowerPoint presentation are as follows (consider using 1-2 slides for each area). Begin your presentation with a brief description of your topic of interest.

  • Research Question and Hypothesis.
    Select a research question that would be appropriate for your area of specialization or experience. Note the research question, as well as the null and alternative hypotheses. Be sure to clearly identify the specific independent and dependent variables you would like to study.
  • Research Method.
    Clearly state the specific method that you selected to use with as much detail as possible, along with a rationale as to why it is appropriate given your research question. Which of the four research goals does this question address?
  • Population.
    Define the population of interest for your study and its characteristics. This should include, but is not limited to 1) age; 2) gender; 3) ethnicity; 4) additional cultural factors; and 5) education level.
  • Sampling.
    Define your method of sampling the population (for example random, convenience, etc.). State how you would gain access to the participants. Justify your choice of the sampling method.
  • Procedures.
    Describe the treatment(s), conditions, intervention(s), etc. that you could potentially use. Explain and justify your choices.
  • Measures.
    Briefly describe the measures you would use, what scale they are a part of, how they fit, etc.
  • Data Type and Collection.
    State the type of data you need to collect and how it would be collected. Explain how the data you collect will answer your Research Question. Discuss how this data and collection method is appropriate for your qualitative research design. Justify your choices.
  • Ethical Protection of Participants.
    Describe any ethical issues you foresee with your study. Make a preliminary assessment of the level of risk associated with participation in your study that might need to be raised with the Institutional Review Board.
  • Validity.
    Discuss ways in which the results of your study may not be valid, such as threats to internal and external validity. Examine any problems or limitations in your design that may lead to concerns here, along with possible concerns regarding the role of the research, and any biases, values, personal interests, etc. that might influence your study.
  • Role of the Researcher.
    Briefly, but explicitly, state biases, values, and personal interest in the area of study and your experience with it. Predict how these would affect your study.

Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as speaker notes for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists and should cite material appropriately.

Support your presentation with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.

Length: 15-20 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide

Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style where appropriate. Save the file as PPT with the correct course code information. Upload your document, and then click the Submit to Dropbox button.
