Assignment Details:

Prepare a 4000 word research proposal to address your chosen research topic. There is a proposed structure and a recommendation for how long each section should be below. The recommended lengths of each section are approximate, and will vary depending on the research question you are proposing to investigate and the methodology you are proposing to use in your hypothetical research proposal.

Guideline for Preparing the Assignment

  1. Abstract / Overview of the project. Point out the importance of the project, why it is being conducted, what the results are expected to show, and the significance of the findings. (~300 words, not included in word count, write it at the end)
  2. With reference to evidence, describe the research objectives. (~700 words)
  3. Critically evaluate evidence. Describe and evaluate the evidence concerning the research topic. The aim is to provide a critique of existing work and identify gaps in knowledge and / or methodological weaknesses in existing research. You have limited space, and so are not expected to provide a comprehensive critique, but to evaluate a small number of appropriate, recent, peer
  4. reviewed studies to demonstrate your skills in identifying and evaluating appropriate evidence. (~1000 words) 4. Identify and justify an area that requires further research. Based on your critical review, identify and justify an area that requires further research. (~300 words). 
  5. Pose a research question or a research hypothesis. This will be closely related to the content of your section on further research. The principal variables or issues being examined should be identified (~200 words).
  6. Describe a hypothetical research study to answer the research question / test the research hypothesis. Remember, this is hypothetical. You do not have to actually be able to carry out the study, but you need to think about what you would need to carry out a study to answer your research question / test your hypothesis. (~1800 words in total, with sections as noted below). 

a. Design / Methodology. This section includes details of the research methodology to be used. Will this be a randomized controlled trial? A quasi-experimental design? A cross-sectional survey? A longitudinal design? A qualitative research study using focus groups? A qualitative research study using semi-structured interviews? A combination of these or something else entirely? In this section the aim is to accurately describe the characteristics of a research design / methodology that is capable of answering the research question / testing the hypothesis posed. (~500 words). 

b. Details of participants. How many people will participate? What are their characteristics? Any inclusion / exclusion criteria? How will the sample be recruited? Identify the sampling method. (~300 words). 

c. Description of materials / measures. This may include tests, surveys, questions to be used in a semi-structured interview, or many other things. The measures need to be consistent with the methodology described at 6(a). (~500 words). 

d. Data Analysis. Describe the proposed analysis strategy briefly. (~250 words). 

e. Ethical issues. This section describes the ethical issues that need to be considered in the research. For example, how you would ensure that participation is voluntary and that people who participate provide informed consent? (~250 words). 

f. Reference list. (not included in the word count) 

When preparing your research proposal please keep in mind that you are being assessed as a level 9 AQF student. This means that your report must: 

(a) Follow the accepted conventions for writing academic reports in terms of writing style and referencing; 

(b) Demonstrate your ability to critically review evidence and draw conclusions based on your evaluation.
