The assignment requires you to write a 3000 word research proposal + 500 reflective words . The aim of the assignment is to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of research design.
The assessment will comprise a research proposal of a selected issue of interest to you.
You will need to describe and justify an appropriate research design (research question, sampling, methodology, methods, data analysis, an ethical framework and issues) in order to investigate your research question.
Evidence of evaluation of a range of research methodologies and methods must be demonstrated and incorporated into this assignment.
You are also expected to demonstrate critical appraisal skills. These are particularly evident when discussing the literature which informs your research question and evaluating a range of research methodologies and methods. Select two articles to critique in depth.
Select a critical appraisal tool to support this e.g. CASP. Remember to focus on the research design of the papers you select.
