RES/724 Wk 4 – Mock Study Development Worksheet

For the remaining weeks in this course, you will demonstrate your understanding of qualitative research by engaging in specific processes associated with the design and development of a mock qualitative study on a topic of your choice.

This week, you will begin formulating a mock qualitative study.

Complete the Mock Study Development Worksheet.

Part II: Exploration

  1. Locate a minimum of three peer-reviewed, empirical journal articles (published within the last five years) that relate to your selected research topic and/or problem. Analyze each article using the criteria outlined in the table below and report your findings within the table.
  2. Part III: Formulating a Research Question and Design

    Propose a research question for a mock study related to your topic and problem that is appropriate for each research purpose listed in the table below. Explain how your research questions align with and/or support the research purpose

  1. Consider your research topic and problem in relation to the research questions you proposed and the literature you reviewed in Part II. Provide a response to the question: “What do I want to know about this topic and problem”?
    1. Propose a research question and design for a mock study that will collect data using interviews to help you discover the knowledge you seek. Explain why your research question and design are appropriate for your study.
    1. Propose a research question and design for a mock study that will collect data using observations to help you discover the knowledge you seek. Explain why your research question and design are appropriate for your study.

     

    1. Explain how your mock study will contribute new knowledge to your discipline (i.e., what is the current gap? and how will your research help to fill that gap?).

Note: Please pay close attention to the entire worksheet. This worksheet has many elements to it. For the observations, please make sure this is a non-participant observation. You cannot observe just an individual; it needs to a group of people like in a board meeting, faculty meeting, train station, mall, Starbucks, etc. The observation should be related to your proposed topic, but sometimes that may not be possible. For the interviews, the two interviews need to be the same…such as two faculty, two managers, two employees. Please contact your instructor for further information. Patients or underage children cannot be interviewed.
