Assignment 2: Research Methods paper
In this course you have explored Quantitative, Qualitative and Mixed Method approaches to research. Consider the research question you wrote in Module 1. Now that you have explored each type of methodology, decide which methodology would best answer your question and use this for your final mini-methods paper.
Based on the work you have previously prepared and the feedback you have received from your instructor and your peers, prepare the mini-methods section (including all appendices, such as informed consent, copy of instruments, interview protocol, etc.).
The final paper should not exceed 15 pages, not including the appendices. This paper should primarily consist of the work that you developed in Modules 2-5 and modified based on feedback from your instructor and your classmates. For the informed consent, and letters of permission, please refer to the University IRB handbook or a dissertation example for templates. If something that should be included is missing (for example, the measure you will be using) place a page with the title or topic of the measure and a few sentences about what will be measured.
The paper must include the following components. Use proper headings and Subheadings, as per the current edition of APA guidelines.
1). Introduction, Problem Statement, Purpose, Research Questions and Literature Review including:
2). Methods including:
3). Limitations (1–2 pages) in which you discuss the limitations of your study in terms of participants, design, data collection, etc. This is a new contribution to your methods. Please refer to your textbook for examples of limitations.
4). References—should be included in accordance with APA style.
5). Appendices including data collection instruments when possible, interview protocols, recruiting, or advertising documents, informed consent forms, etc. Use your sample dissertations and Argosy dissertation guide to help you in writing your consent forms. Please note you should not have any formal permissions at this point, but should include a page with a description of what will be included for the proposal (ie permission from schools etc). If measures are not yet available provide a description of potential measures.
All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.
