Research Proposal using Data Collection

Assignment: Research Proposal Part 2
In Part 1 of your research proposal, you established the need for further study in your literature review and mapped out your problem statement, research question, and methodological approach. Now you expand on that foundation by including your plans for sampling, data collection, and ethical and cultural considerations.

You also do a bit of reflection in Part 2—first by anticipating the results of your study and what you’d expect to find, and second by reflecting on the research process and what you have learned. For instance, to what extent has your understanding of research deepened? Does the research process seem more valuable now after having built your own proposal? Consider these questions as you complete your full research proposal, adding information to the Part 2 sections.
