1INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROJECT 2: Rough and Final DraftsMethodsABSTRACTThe abstract should be written last and is short, usually around 100-150 words. The intention of an abstract is to provide a reader a good, but concise overview of your proposal. RESEARCH QUESTION: What are you studying? State this in the form of a question here. HYPOTHESESYou as the researcher have some ideas about the potential results of your study or something you are expecting to learn. Share that here. VARIABLESThis section will explain what you determined to be the independent and dependent variables for your proposed study. We are not going to go as far as to collect actual data in this course, but write this section as if you are and include details about the ways that you would measure those variables. STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEMThe Statement of the Problem section will revisit the Literature Review you wrote from Project 1. This section can be much shorter than your literature review was, but should include the same types of literature citations and synthesis of what you read. You are further building the justification for your study with this and end this section with an interpretation of why whatever you are studying is important to study in the first place. POPULATION OF STUDY AND DATA COLLECTION METHODSThis section is all about the people that have been and will be studied. Who has already been studied related to this research question? Use this section to describe populations that have been studied in various ways. What did the researchers learn from those populations? You should strongly consider their reasons for selecting certain groups and how risk of harm to the research subjects can play a role in deciding which populations to study. If you were conducting a study, for example, about juvenile delinquency, it might be easier to interview professionals working with juveniles than the juveniles themselves. Tell your reader what implications choosing one population over another have for your research findings and also tell your readers who you are going to study. SIGNIFICANCE OF THE RESEARCHThis section allows you one final opportunity to tell your reader why what you are studying matters. Will the findings possibly shape policy or practice? What does what you are trying to learn mean on a broad (macro) level? REFERENCES:Your reference list should start on a separate page and follow APA standards just as in Project 1. Please see the Research Resources in Learning Modules for more information about APA formatting. ***Helpful tips:Use APA formatting both for in-text formatting of citations in this paper and at the end in the References for citing your articles. Failure to cite your articles or writing word for word what another author says will be considered plagiarism. This paper will be approximately 7-10 pages of text, double-spaced and not including your Reference (bibliography at the end) page.The Rough Draft will be graded and returned to you with feedback before you will submit the Final Draft. See the sample paper in this Assignment section for an example.
