Your dissertation topic will need to be aligned with your degree program and specialization. For the purposes of this assignment, consider how you could research your chosen dissertation topic through a quantitative lens, using quantitative methods and research questions that are aligned with quantitative research. The focus of this course is quantitative research methodology and design. Be sure that your assignment reflects a quantitative problem, purpose, and research question methodology (even if you plan to pursue qualitative methods for your dissertation).
If you do not have a research topic at this time; then contact your instructor or use a simple quantitative research study in your field that you are familiar with. Be sure to keep your quantitative research simple for this course. Recall that the focus of the course is learning quantitative research methodology and design.
Develop a problem statement, purpose statement, and research questions with corresponding set of hypotheses for your intended dissertation research (or a quantitative example) that will use a quantitative approach. You may want to use the Methods Map to provide an overview of a quantitative approach. When using the map, it is recommended that you begin with “Quantitative Data Collection,” which will provide a list of the method on the right. You can click on any of these for more information. Remember to look at the top box for definitions of terms/concepts.
This is to be based on: (1) the review of the literature in your topic area; (2) the identification of a problem based on your analysis of this literature; (3) evidence for a research-worthy problem; (4) well formulated research question(s) and hypotheses; and (5) your understanding of the alternative types of quantitative research studies.
