Question description

Application

Continue: Three Abbreviated Research Plans

Last week, you began to develop an abbreviated quantitative research plan, determining that a survey or experimental design best suited your research problem, questions, and hypotheses. Now, suppose that your role as researcher is crucial to answering the research question—it turns out that a qualitative approach fits best.

This Week: Submit Draft of an Abbreviated Qualitative Research Plan

You will apply qualitative research methods this week when you develop a qualitative research plan that seeks to answer your research problem and research question.

To prepare for this Application, first focus on the following instructions:

Review Chapter 9 in the course text, Research Design, the "Trustworthiness" handout, and "Qualitative Methods: Examples" from the Course DVD Research Theory, Design, and Methods.

Consult Table 9.1 (p. 174) in the course text, Research Methods to guide you in polishing your abbreviated qualitative research plan.

Draft an introduction for your abbreviated research plan.

Next, ask yourself the following questions:

What are your research questions? To what extent can you test them? How would you justify the viability of your questions?

Why would this design be the most appropriate for answering the research questions? Conversely, why would quantitative and mixed methods not be appropriate?

What approach would you select for this study (ethnography, grounded theory, case study, phenomenology, narrative)? Why is this approach the most appropriate one for answering the research questions?

What theoretical framework or perspective would you use?

What would be your role as the researcher?

What is your target population? How would you identify and recruit participants? What factors would contribute to determining appropriate sample size? You will not need to calculate sample size for this assignment.

If appropriate for your plan, what instruments might you need?

What data collection procedures might you use? Why would those be the most appropriate methods to use? How would that data help to answer your research question(s)?

How would you ensure quality and reliability of data?

What are threats to validity? How might you mitigate them?

How might you analyze the data?

What are the ethical considerations related to the plan?

In this Week 9, you will develop an abbreviated qualitative research plan and submit the draft for instructor feedback.

The assignment:

Craft a 2- to 3-page paper in which you:

Provide an introduction.

Provide a purpose statement.

Provide viable research questions.

Generate a written research plan that addresses the above questions.

Over each successive week, you will focus on a specific approach culminating in a refined document:

We are using the same Stress Management as last week’s assignment.

Stress pervades many areas of life. Whether it is stress from relationships, work, school, or the social environment, research has shown that it can have a profound impact on mental health, physical well-being, productivity, performance, and decision making. Research on cognitive appraisals, coping, and social support has also provided insight into how people view and manage stress.
