To Prepare

·  Read the Learning Resources on conducting a literature review. Pay particular attention to how reviewing the literature can help you build on and refine your research problem.

Read the Learning Resources on theoretical and conceptual frameworks. Think about the differences between the two and how each might guide a quantitative or qualitative study.

·  Review your prior Week’s Discussion on a quantitative and qualitative research problem, purpose, and research question. Given the additional literature you have read about your research problem, consider how you might build on and refine it.

·  Identify a specific psychological or sociological theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework that guide your quantitative and qualitative scenarios. Depending on the context of each scenario, the same specific theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework could guide both scenarios.

Post by day 3; Repost, or build on or refine as needed, your Week 1 Discussion using the following headings and according to the italicized instructions given for each element:

Program of Study: Identify your specific program of study and, if applicable, your concentration area.

Social Problem: Briefly describe the social problem or phenomenon of interest. Typically, this can be done in 3 or fewer sentences.

Quantitative Research Problem: Complete the following sentence: The scholarly community does not know…

Quantitative Research Purpose: Typically, this is a 1-sentence statement addressed by completing the following sentence: The purpose of this quantitative study is…

Quantitative Research Question: Typically, this is a 1-sentence question unless you have more than one research question.

Theory or Conceptual Framework: Identify a specific psychological or sociological theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework that guides that guides the scenario. Briefly describe how the specific theory or conceptual framework guides your research question and will aid in interpretation of results.

Qualitative Research Problem: Complete the following sentence: The scholarly community does not know…

Qualitative Research Purpose: Typically, this is a 1-sentence statement addressed by completing the following sentence: The purpose of this qualitative study is…

Qualitative Research Question: Typically, this is a 1-sentence question unless you have more than one research question.

Theory or Conceptual Framework: Identify a specific psychological or sociological theory or specific aspects of a conceptual framework that guides the scenario. Briefly describe how the specific theory or conceptual framework guides your research question and will aid in interpretation of results. If this is the same as described for the quantitative scenario, then just indicate “same as quantitative.”
