week two phd

 

Choose one concept, research finding, or question that stood out to you in your readings and content assigned for this week. Find an empirical research article* about this that was published in the scientific literature in the last 7 years and provide a summary of that article here answering the following questions. Attach the article to your post, and provide an APA style reference for it at the bottom of your post.

  1. What is the item that stood out to you and why?
  2. What did the authors of the study you selected examine in their research? What did they hypothesize and why (rationale)?
  3. What methods did they use? (*Empirical articles have a methods section. If your article does not have a methods section, it is not the correct article to use for this discussion).
  4. What were the most meaningful findings the authors reported?
  5. What is one limitation to their study?
  6. How do the findings from this study help you better understand the content from this week?

Part 2

This week we will practice setting up the gap, rq and hypothesis for the proposal.  Using the format below and discussed in Keiser Live include a draft of each component:

Gap: 

Although previous studies have found ___________(citations), no study to date has examined ____________. 

RQ:

Is there a relationship between Variable A and Variable B (in name of population being studied)?

Or

Is there a difference in DV based on level of IV (in name of population being studied)?

Hypothesis:

There is a (positive/negative) relationship between Variable A and Variable B (in name of population being studied).

Or

There a difference in DV based on level of IV (in name of population being studied).
