In preparation to complete the Signature Assignment, a quantitative research proposal, collect and read five peer-reviewed primary source research articles dated within the previous 5 years related to a research topic of interest. The same sources may be used from this course or from any previous courses that meet the requirement.
Using these sources as justification, properly cited in APA format, develop the following initial quantitative research proposal sections:
- Statement of the Problem
- Purpose of the Study
- Research Question(s)
- Hypotheses (null and alternative)
Ensure the Statement of the Problem focuses solely on the problem, the Purpose of the Study focuses solely on the intent of the study, the Research Question(s) addresses the Purpose of the Study and do not elicit a yes or no response, and the Hypotheses address the Research Question(s). Ensure all four sections are aligned in content and in wording.
Support your assignment with at least five scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages
Your assignment should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts presented in the course by providing new thoughts and insights relating directly to this topic. Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.
