RES 850 Module 2 Assignment 10 Strategic Points Quantitative Study Extraction #1

Details:

In the prospectus, proposal, and dissertation there are 10 strategic points that need to be clear, simple, correct, and aligned to ensure the research is doable, valuable, and credible. These points, which provide a guide or vision for the research, are present in almost any research study. The ability to identify these points is one of the first skills required in the creation of a viable doctoral dissertation. In this assignment, you will identify and evaluate 10 strategic points in a published quantitative research study.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • Review the Mulligan dissertation.

RES 850 Module 5 DQ 2

In “The Practice of Social Research,” Babbie (2013) suggest the following research question as a simple example: Are social sciences teachers, natural sciences teachers, or arts teachers more beloved among students on a college campus?

To answer the research question, you might observe throughout a semester the attendance rates for a key course in each of the groups; review end of course surveys and compare average instructor ratings among the groups; or compare the number of cards, letters, and gifts received by faculty members in each group at the end of a semester.

Use Google or a search engine of your choice to conduct an internet search using the search question “What is alignment in research?” Select several sources from the search results list and read about alignment. Given the information in your reading, which of the methods suggested above may be good choices (align well with) and which may not bring about the desired results for the study Babbie suggested? Why? What does your consideration of these options tell you about operationalization and alignment? Why is that significant?
