Question Description

I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?

Item 1

For this Assessment, you will evaluate the purpose statements this journal article and consider the alignment of theory, problem, and purpose. You will also explain your position on the relationship between research and social change.

Alignment means that a research study possesses clear and logical connections among all of its various components. To achieve these connections, researchers must carefully craft the components of their study such that when they are viewed together, there is a coherent interrelationship.

As you read the authors' purpose statements, consider how well the intent of the study, and its connection to the problem and theoretical framework, is presented. Also, consider if the purpose statement reveals the study's potential for engendering positive social change.

As you know, social change is a distinguishing feature of the University's mission. Positive social change implies a transformation that results in positive outcomes. This can happen at many levels (e.g., individual, family systems, neighborhoods, organizations, nationally, and globally); and positive social change can occur at different rates: slow and gradual or fast and radical.

With these thoughts in mind, refer to http://ijmbr.srbiau.ac.ir/article_7957_00f359f786fbf60d13a40db3cc4b4497.pdf

Submit a critique of the research study in which you:

Evaluate the authors' use of literature using the Use of Literature Checklist as a guide.

Evaluate the research problem using the Problem Statement Checklist as a guide.

Explain what it means for a research study to be justified and grounded in the literature. Then, explain what it means for a problem to be original using the Litmus Test as a guide.

(2–3 paragraphs)

Item 2

Provide an explanation of a threat to internal validity and a threat to external validity in quantitative research. Next, explain a strategy to mitigate each of these threats. Then, identify a potential ethical issue in quantitative research, and explain how it might influence design decisions. Finally, explain what it means for a research topic to be amenable to scientific study using a quantitative approach. (2–3 paragraphs)

Item 3

The selection of a research design is guided by the study's purpose and research questions and hypotheses, and the design then links the research questions and hypotheses to the data that will be collected. You should keep in mind, however, that the research process is interactive, not necessarily proceeding in a linear fashion from one component to the next. Rather, the writing of research questions could, for example, necessitate adjustments to the study's purpose statement. Nevertheless, when presented together, the various components of a research study should align. Alignment means that a research study possesses clear and logical connections among all of its various components.

In addition to considering alignment, when researchers select a research design, they must also consider the ethical implications of their choice, including, for example, what their design selection means for participant recruitment, procedures, and privacy.

For this question, you will evaluate quantitative research questions and hypotheses in assigned journal articles in your discipline and consider the alignment of theory, problem, purpose, research questions and hypotheses, and design. You will also identify the type of quantitative research design the authors used and explain how it was implemented. Quasi-experimental, casual comparative, correlational, pretest-posttest, or true experimental are examples of types of research designs used in quantitative research.

With these thoughts in mind, refer to this journal article

http://ijmbr.srbiau.ac.ir/article_7957_00f359f786f...

In your response, provide a critique of the research study in which you:

Evaluate the research questions and hypotheses. (Note: The Research Questions and Hypotheses Checklist can be used as a guide to facilitate your evaluation. It is not meant to be used in a Yes/No response format in writing your response.)

Identify the type of quantitative research design used, and explain how the researchers implemented the design.

Analyze alignment among the theory, problem, purpose, research questions and hypotheses, and design.

Be sure to support your critique with reference to the Learning Resources and other scholarly evidence in APA style.

Item 4

For this question, you will submit the annotation of a quantitative research article on a topic of your interest. Quasi-experimental, casual comparative, correlational, pretest/post-test, or true experimental are examples of types of research designs used in quantitative research.

An annotation consists of three separate paragraphs that cover three respective components: summary, analysis, and application. These three components convey the relevance and value of the source. As such, an annotation demonstrates your critical thinking about (and authority on) the source.

An Annotated Bibliography is a document containing selected sources accompanied by a respective annotation of each source. In preparation for your own future research, an Annotated Bibliography provides a background for understanding a portion of the existing literature on a particular topic. It is also a useful first step in gathering sources in preparation for writing a subsequent literature review as part of a dissertation.

Use a Library databases to search for one quantitative research article from a peer-reviewed journal on a topic of your interest.

Before you read the full article and begin your annotation, locate the methodology section in the article to be sure that the article describes a quantitative study. Confirm that one of the types of quantitative designs (such as, quasi-experimental, casual comparative, correlational, pretest-posttest, or true experimental) was used in the study.

Annotate one quantitative research article from a peer-reviewed journal on a topic of your interest.

Provide the reference list entry for this article in APA style followed by a 3-paragraph annotation that includes:

A summary

An analysis

An application, as illustrated in this example

Format your annotation in Times New Roman, 12-point font, double-spaced. A separate Reference page is not needed.

Use of Literature Checklist Use the following criteria to evaluate an author’s use of literature. Look for indications of the following ways the author used literature: • • • • Introduced a problem Introduced a theory Provided direction to the research questions and/or hypotheses Compared results with existing literature or predictions Then, consider these questions: • • • • • • • • Did the author mention the problem addressed by the study? Is the purpose of the study stated? Are key variables in the study defined? Is information about the sample, population, or participants provided? Are the key results of the study summarized? Does the author provide a critique of the literature? Are sources cited to support points? Are the citations to recent literature, within the past 5 years, with the exception of seminal works? Does the literature justify the importance of the topic studied? Problem Statement Checklist Use the following criteria to evaluate an author’s problem statement: • • • • • Is a problem identified that leads to the need for this study? Is a rationale or justification, for the problem, clearly stated? Is the problem framed in a way that is consistent with the research approach? Does the statement convey how the study will address the problem? Are the citations to literature current (within the past 5 years, with the exception of seminal works)? Research Questions and Hypotheses Checklist Use the following criteria to evaluate an author’s research questions and/or hypotheses. Look for indications of the following: • • • • Is the research question(s) a logical extension of the purpose of the study? Does the research question(s) reflect the best question to address the problem? Does the research question(s) align with the design of the study? Does the research question(s) align with the method identified for collecting data? If the study is qualitative, does the research question(s) do as follows? • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Relate the central question to the qualitative approach. Begin with what or how (not why). Focus on a single phenomenon. Use exploratory verbs. Use nondirectional language. Use an open-ended format. Specify the participants and research site If the study is quantitative. Do the descriptive questions seek to describe responses to major variables? Do the inferential questions seek to compare groups or relate variables? Do the inferential questions follow from a theory? Are the variables positioned consistently from independent/predictor to dependent/outcome in the inferential questions? Is a null and/or alternative hypothesis provided as a predictive statement? Is the hypothesis consistent with its respective research question? Does the question(s) and/or hypothesis specify the participants and research site? If the study is mixed methods, do the research questions and/or hypotheses do the following? • • • • • Include the characteristics of a good qualitative research question (as listed above). Include the characteristics of a good quantitative research and/or hypothesis (as listed above). Indicate how the researcher will mix or integrate the two approaches of the study. Specify the participants and research site. Convey the overall intent of the study that calls for a mixed methods approach. ...

JOB SATISFACTION AND COMMITMENT

2

Job Satisfaction and Commitment
Job satisfaction among employees working within an organization can be estimated by
the duties and responsibilities of each worker to recognize organizational commitment. Given
that there are multiple aspects of a job, further results to determine the extent of job satisfaction
can be noted by both intrinsic and extrinsic elements. Organizational commitment is seen as a
relative strength that is identified by individuals in an organization. Those who hold stronger
effective commitments will remain with the organization because of increased satisfaction with
their job. The study conducted by Gangai & Agrawal (2014) reveals that job satisfaction among
employees if positive can increase organizational commitment whereas if job satisfaction is
viewed from a negative aspect, the organization committee will decline.
Item 1
The purpose of this article is to examine the relations that exist among organizational
commitment and job satisfaction to emphasize significant contributions towards extant research
that relates to management and organizational behaviors. The study uses three fundamental
components that relate to effectiveness, continuance, and normative values that exist in
organizations whether those values are deemed to be positive or negative by individual
employees (Gangai & Agrawal, 2014). Those who feel positive in the organization will reflect it
by demonstrating affection towards the orga...
