This should be your ‘proposal ready’ review of the literature, defining why you think the study is important, and defending the choices you have made (intend to make) in the design and analysis of your data.
A key component of a research proposal is a review of the literature. You need to establish what is known and what is unknown about your chosen topic. Every CHOICE you make in the research project design (such as interventions, media, education approach, assessments, analysis and statistical methods, etc.) needs to be supported by ‘grounding’ in the
This personal search, reading, and analysis of the current literature is demonstrated through the literature review section of your final proposal. You tell the story of what you found in the literature that drove your decisions to the final proposal you are (will) submit.
The assignment should generally be of adequate length to clearly demonstrate your critical analysis and synthesis (conclusions) of a minimum of 10 references, with an additional attached page of the references. This should be written as a cohesive paper that integrates and discusses the relevant literature that you have collected and reviewed.
This component should be in APA style, and be ‘publication ready’ at the time of submission for the points available. All scores applied per the rubric are considered final for this assignment.
Feedback will be provided, and corrections are expected for the final Research Proposal submission.
