1. This paper includes
a. Data analysis,
b. Anticipated results (based on previous research and own clinical knowledge). Since this study is only a proposal and will not be done, a reasoned outcome should be provided. It is acknowledged that this proposed outcome may be in error or faulty.
c. Strengths and weaknesses of the proposed study
d. Suggestions for future research
2. Write a 3â€“5-page paper, excluding the title and reference pages,
3. Current APA format.
4. Include a minimum of 2-3 scholarly references (excluding the textbook and Bible).
In this section your will describe how you will analyze the data. This information needs to be very specific. It is insufficient to just describe the statistical software package you will be using like SPSS. The analysis of data includes description of (a) preparation of the data for analysis, (b) description of the sample, (c) testing the reliability of the measurement (d) level of significance. In addition, quantitative data always uses descriptive statistics (analysis of the sample) as well as analysis of variables. A rationale should be provided to support the choice of statistical analysis. A full description of the statistical procedures that are used to analysis the variables to be done should be given.
If you have chosen to do qualitative proposal, a full description of how you would analyze this data should be done. Qualitative data does not use inferential statistics. The analysis of data would also include description of (a) preparation of the data for analysis, (b) description of the sample as well as a full analysis of the data itself.
Based on previous research and your clinical experience, what would be the possible anticipated result of the study if it were done? Try to be as specific as possible based on the research question, relationship between variables, and the statistical analysis. What would be your rationale for this outcome? As previously stated, â€œSince this study is only a proposal and will not be done, a reasoned outcome should be provided. It is acknowledged that this proposed outcome may be in error or faulty.â€
Strengths and Weaknesses
Discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your proposed study. Review your research question and literature. Consider your sampling procedure, sample, sample size, type of research design, extraneous variables, data collection tool used, etc. Also discuss external validity (generalizability) of your proposed study.
Suggestions for Further Research
What would be the next steps in the research of this topic or these variables. Is ther a new direction the research should go? Should there be replication studies? Where does the research go from here?
