Research Study Plan.
Submit a research plan that incorporates the finalized versions of your problem statement and purpose statement with the corresponding research questions/hypotheses developed previously. Include any appropriate independent and dependent variables, population, geographical location, and significance of the research study. This research plan should establish a theoretical framework for a quantitative, qualitative, or mixed research method study. Evaluate and discuss the appropriateness of your theoretical framework selection, including your reasons for method and design selection relative to the information you think will be needed to answer and test the research questions/hypotheses. In the plan you should reflect your knowledge of the elements of the method selected and the method’s associated vocabulary.
