IED 574 - Final Research Project

(Cr: 3)
The Research Project is designed to prepare a graduate student in the practical engagement of the principles of applied research as they have been presented in Research Methods. During the Research Methods course, students were asked to research a topic within their field and to prepare a research proposal for critique by peers. Here, using knowledge from the previous class, students will choose from two options: First, students may choose to improve and then implement their Research Methods course proposal, conduct data analysis, and write a final research report suitable for publishing. Second, students may choose instead to write another proposal using the “matches” procedure described below, in which they construct another theoretical research model that will amply demonstrate their skills in the use of applied research methods to affect change within their work environments. Please note that this second option will only be theoretical, not implemented, and data will be created to allow for practice in conducting statistical tests.
