For  this task, you will pull together your learning from the previous  assignments to create a quantitative or qualitative mock 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
