Rough Draft Comments from Professor:
In accordance with the rubric, you earned 83 points.
Please see your Turnitin results where detailed comments have been added for you to incorporate into your paper final submission.
20 points earned for grammar and spelling.
10 points were earned for the structure of your paper.
18 points earned for sources. You used credible scholarly sources including the text to give compelling evidence to support claims, but they are not clearly and fairly represented.
35 points earned for content. Your essay illustrates an understanding of the relevant material, but there are a few areas I would like for you to revise. The research methods section and conclusion need a lot of work.
Please find the rubric attached.
Each student will be required to complete the term project, which is a research proposal written in an APA Style. The project should have at least 8-10 pages of substance not counting the cover and reference page. Please include a Cover Page, an abstract and a list of references. The research proposal you write in this course will NOT be sent to the IRB for approval. This is because you will not be conducting actual research for the purpose of this class. You will, however, gain an insight as to how to write a research proposal.
Each student will be required to complete a research proposal, as the term project. The research proposal will include the following:
- Title page
- Abstract (100-120 words)
- Problem Statement
- Purpose Statement
- Literature Review and Definitions included in the research
- Research methods/design
- Appendices – as needed (annotated bibliography, example consent form, example survey if used)
The research proposal (Term Project) must be in a Word Document (.doc) uploaded to the student’s folder through the assignment section. Students will be required to use at least five scholarly references in their work.
Students are required to follow APA Style guidelines.
Please make sure that you are using the course-writing rubric to use as a checklist so that you write a solid paper.
Students must use a topic, which was approved by the instructor or their research proposal.
Do not include quotes in your work. The student needs to display good critical thinking skills and not a string of quotes written by published authors. Your proposal is what is needed for a successful research project to be conducted in the future.
