Introduction to Research Methods: Build a Qualitative Proposal

Taking what you have learned from the readings and the feedback given on your past assignments, present a mini proposal that includes the following:

  1. Statement of problem. Provide a clear justification with evidence on why this study is relevant to your field and worthy of doctoral-level study. Support your efforts using scholarly information published within the past 5 years to ensure relevancy. Remember the problem statement should reflect your degree type (applied or research).
  2. Purpose statement (how your study will address the problem using qualitative methodology). This statement should flow from the problem statement.
  3. Research questions (make sure there is alignment with the problem and purpose).
  4. Find 2 to 3 articles related to your topic of interest and provide an overview of the research methodology and design where you specifically discuss the elements below from each article and discuss how each applies (or does not apply to your current study):
    • A specific qualitative design,
    • The population and sample,
    • Steps for data collection and protection of human subjects,
    • Steps for the analysis of the data, and
    • Issues of trustworthiness within a qualitative framework.
  5. Based on your analysis above, what seems most applicable to your hypothetical study and why? Be sure to discuss the qualitative design, population and sample, data collection, analysis, and trustworthiness.
  6. Discussion of the inherent strengths and challenges of your hypothetical study to include any ethical considerations that might need to be addressed in the study.

Make sure to support all assertions and research choices, using the course resources as well as additional scholarly literature you have found.

Make sure to justify your steps and choices, using the course resources to help support your points.
