Quantitative and Qualitative Research Approaches

Briefly describe the topic area you are considering for your course project:

Begin with a 10 to 12 word title that summarizes the main idea of the paper in a concise statement.

Provide a clear statement of the problem in 3 to 5 sentences, being sure to address the so what factor (that is, what is wrong, missing, unmet needs, opportunities, or unknown).

Include a set of research questions you will use to organize and focus your continuing search for information and reading of the literature.

Identify the source for the problem, topic, issue, opportunity, or questions (for example, your own experience/observation, questions emerging from reading in the literature, et cetera), and describe whether you see this as a potential gap in your own knowledge or skills, theory, or previous research.

Identify one or more library or electronic databases that will serve to give you access to the scholarly literature on your topic, providing a very brief description of how you will access this and the subject areas included in the database. (Note: Until you conduct a more thorough review of the literature, it may be difficult or premature to state whether this topic represents a true gap in the literature.)

If you have read articles, books, or other sources of information that have informed your conceptualization of this topic, be sure to cite and reference them.
