For this assignment you will submit a draft of a proposal to conduct a hypothetical course relevant research study. You may use a published study as a “prototype” of what the various components look like, but the study you design must be for your own original research idea. The draft proposal will consist of an Introduction, a Method section, a Literature Review and a Procedure section. The paper must comply with APA formatting rules. It will be automatically run through Turnitin.com and an originality report generated on submission.
Your midterm Study Proposal Draft will include the information below, with the bold font words as section headings in your proposal submission. The Final Study Proposal will be comprised of the same information, with any errors corrected following prof feedback and the addition of a Methodology and an Analysis heading following the Hypothesis section. Instructions for completion of it are on the Final Proposal screen.
