Objectives
Identify and discussion basic designs, corresponding or additional questions, analytical methods related to research questions, and limits on implications of findings (e.g., causal vs. relational)
Deliverables
Write a 3-4 page (not including the title and reference pages) paper
APA formatted paper with an introduction and conclusion.
APA headings for each section of the paper
At least 5 peer reviewed articles
Step 1: Research
Review the readings and video and research basic designs, corresponding questions, analytical methods related to research questions and limitation on implication of findings (causal vs relational).
You may want to base this research on your idea for your Capstone Project.
Step 2: Consider
Related to the research questions and limitations on implications or findings (causal vs relational):
What are the basic research designs?
What are the corresponding or additional questions used?
What analytical methods are used?
Step 3: Write
Write a paper that addresses the questions above.
Step 4 Save and submit
When you have completed your assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy to your instructor using the dropbox.

Demonstrates an understanding and some critical analysis of the research topic and thesis (argument). Adequately compares/contrasts perspectives, counter-arguments, or opposing positions but broader connections and/or implications are not as thoroughly explored
5 pts
Developing
Identifies a research topic but may be too broad in scope and/or the thesis is somewhat unclear and needs to be developed further. Focal point is not consistently maintained throughout the paper. Demonstrates general understanding with limited critical analysis of the research topic and thesis (argument). Summarizes perspectives, counter-arguments, or opposing positions.
0 pts
Unsatisfactory – Beginning
Fails to identify a relevant research topic or is not clearly defined and/or the paper lacks focus throughout. Demonstrates a lack of understanding and inadequate analysis of the research topic and thesis. Analysis is superficial based on opinions and preferences rather than critical analysis.

Content is somewhat organized. For a paper, occasionally ideas from paragraph to paragraph may not flow well and/or connect to the central position or be clear as a whole. May be missing a required component and/or components may be less than complete. For a slide presentation, multiple aspects of the design require further development for optimal audience viewing.
0 pts
Unsatisfactory – Beginning
Content lacks logical organization and impedes readers’ comprehension of ideas. For a paper, central position is rarely evident from paragraph to paragraph and/or the paper is missing multiple required components. For a slide presentation, the design lacks clarity for optimal viewing by an audience.
