Introduction A Research Proposal is a document that researchers and scholars often submit to research advisors, funders, stakeholders or other interested persons prior to the beginning of a pilot/full-research study. The goal of a research proposal is to succinctly outline your study so that stakeholders and organizations can have a better idea of your intentions to carry out a specific study. Research proposals can vary in length from 5-30 pages and are often organized based on the audience that will be reviewing the proposal and providing approval for the researcher to carry out the study. Assignment As a capstone project for the course, you will complete a 10-page research proposal on a topic of your choosing. Based on the readings, course instruction and other assignments completed in this class, you will construct the research proposal as if you were actually going to conduct a research study. This assignment will guide you in getting familiar with research project requirements as you prepare for your thesis/non-thesis projects. Please include the following in your assignment: • Introduction: Typically one or two paragraphs that describe the proposed study and what topics are to be discussed in the proposal. This section should generate reader interest in your topic. The introduction should be written in past tense as it will be reported in your completed study. • Statement of the Problem: In research your goal is to state a problem or problematize a social phenomenon such as, what is the impact of student preparedness on educational outcomes in K-12 schools? • Theoretical Framework: Which theory from ORGC 502 will you apply to your study/research? Choose on theory only, define it and substantiate its use in your research. • Variable Definitions: Depending upon your topic, there may be terms and concepts associated with your research that may require definition. For instance, if you are conducting research on sports organizations or the medical field, there will be terms and ideas that are familiar to the average reader. These terms should be defined under variable definitions, if applicable. • Purpose of the Study: What do you hope to accomplish with your study? Which audience of scholars and fellow researchers and policy makers are you seeking to compel with your research and why? • Review of Literature: The review of literature can be adapted from your annotated bibliography and should be shortened for your proposal. The information contained in your literature review should establish the road map of previous research that your proposal stands upon. • Methodology: Which methodology will you employ for your research proposal? Will you use a survey focus group, comparative analysis, literacy analysis, a meta-analysis or other method? Will the method be qualitative or quantitative in nature? Whichever method you choose, it should be defined based upon existing methods and its use also justified in your methodology section. • Data Analysis: How will you analyze the data you have collected? This must also be outlined in your methods section. • Proposed Timetable: How will you conduct your proposed study and what is the time frame from start to completion? • References: Your references are to be adopted from your annotated bibliography, minus the annotation and should be listed alphabetically and in APA style at the end of your proposal.
