HYPOTHESIS AND RESEARCH DESIGN:

Hypothesis:

Since your hypotheses may serve as your research questions (what you plan to measure/examine), list the questions and then convert them into hypotheses. Research questions must be individual questions that measure only one item (one question = one measurement). A couple of questions are expected in this section (typically 2 to 4). You MUST convert these questions into traditional hypotheses format. For example: If someone grows up in a poor neighborhood, they will be more likely to be involved with crime than someone in a middle or upper-class neighborhood. A hypothesis is a statement and not a question.

The Research Design (Methodology) Section:

This section should provide the reader with a summary of the research. You will address the research problem, the research questions (hypotheses) that need to be addressed to resolve this problem, the research method (qualitative or quantitative), how you will select your sample population, how you will collect your data, and how you will analyze your data.

In short, your research design should illustrate the “step by step” directions that would enable another researcher to  execute your research if you are unable to conduct the study yourself. Think of this as directions from how to get to point A to point B. This detail is necessary as it demonstrates that you understand how to best conduct your research for your topic.

References:

Incorporate your references into this section and provide one comprehensive list. Remember to use APA 6th Edition format. If you have a citation in the body of your work, you must provide the appropriate reference in the reference section. Also, if you have a reference in your reference section, you must have a citation from that work somewhere in the body of your work. The citations and references must match up. You will be strictly held to the APA standards. Use proper citations and references!

Submission Instructions: 

You are to submit your Hypothesis (Research Questions) and Research Design (Methodology) in a Word document with your references. 

Upload your MS Word document to this assignment as an attachment as Turnitin will assess your matching percent.

Major Areas to Review:

For clarity, the intent of this section is for you to explain what you will do to collect and analyze your data. It is not intended for you to explain what you did as you did not carry out the full study in this course. Also the goal is to speak in the future tense when you complete this section. You want to address the following below using APA format

Hypothesis:

These are your research questions (what you plan to measure/examine). List the questions and then convert them into hypotheses. Research questions must be individual questions that measure only one item (one question = one measurement). A couple of questions are expected in this section (typically 2 to 4). You MUST convert these questions into traditional hypotheses format. 

For example (Alternate Example): If someone grows up in a poor neighborhood, they will be more likely to be involved with crime than someone in a middle or upper class neighborhood. A hypothesis is a statement and not a question.

For example (Null Example): There is no statistical significant difference between someone who grows up in a poor neighborhood and someone from a middle or upper class neighborhood likely involvement in crime (quantitative design would use this example).

The Research Design Section:

  • Outlined the method you selected to gather data to answer the research questions, and possible implications of resolving the research problem.
  • Identified and Operationalized (measurement)  Variables.
  • Provided Sampling Plan (i.e., study population and sampling procedures, if appropriate) and justification. This section is primarily focused on the population or sample you will use for your study and why? For example, will you use APUS students and faculty, an organization of people, or the general public to collect data.
  • Provided Data Collection (secondary literature, archives, interviews, surveys, etc.). For example, what instrument will you use (survey, interview, etc.)? What documents will you use if conducting a document analysis?
  • Provided a Summary of Analysis Procedures (pattern-matching, etc.). The goal of this section is to explain how you will analyze the data collected using descriptive statistics, (Mean, Median and Mode), frequency distribution, T-test, ANOVA, Chi Square; Correlation, pattern matching (using charts, diagram, tables, models), etc.
  • Provided the Limitations of Study and bias discussion.

In short, your research design should illustrate the “step by step” directions that would enable another researcher to  execute your research if you are unable to conduct the study yourself. Think of this as directions from how to get to point A to point B. This detail is necessary as it demonstrates that you understand how to best conduct your research for your topic.
