10 Strategic Points Quantitative Study Extraction #1

Details:

In the prospectus, proposal, and dissertation there are 10 strategic points that need to be clear, simple, correct, and aligned to ensure the research is doable, valuable, and credible. These points, which provide a guide or vision for the research, are present in almost any research study. The ability to identify these points is one of the first skills required in the creation of a viable doctoral dissertation. In this assignment, you will identify and evaluate 10 strategic points in a published quantitative research study.

 

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

Review the Casteel dissertation.

  • Describe the problem and how it informed the research questions under study.
  • Describe the quantitative design used and why it is appropriate for the identified problem and research questions. Support your response with a peer-reviewed citation from a research source.
