For this discussion, you will identify a study that will be used as a model study throughout the course. It is permissible to use the study that you described in the Week 1 Project as long as it includes details regarding the below-mentioned topics. If your study doesn’t describe these topics, then you will need to locate and identify another study. Your model study should include a description of the following topics:
- Background (description of the problem to be examined or evaluated)
- Literature review
- Methodology (explanation of how data was collected and analyzed)
- Analysis and findings
Note: For this part of the discussion, you simply need to identify the chosen “model” study, with complete reference.
Researchers usually encounter barriers as they conduct a study. Failure to recognize potential barriers can be costly and may even derail a project entirely if unexpected barriers cannot be overcome.
For this discussion, discuss the research question(s) that were composed in Week 1 Project.
On the basis of your discussion, respond to the following points:
- Speculate on the barriers you might encounter as you seek to investigate your research questions.
- Describe how you would design your study in order to minimize the impact of the barriers that you encounter.
