In a seamless posting, please incorporate the following questions into your initial postings:
Under the heading method and design in your research proposal regardless of the method/approach used qualitative, quantitative, or mix methods, you will need to discuss the data collection instrument (tool) you propose to use to gather data. Instrument is the general term that researchers use for a measurement device (survey, questionnaire, test, interview, observation, etc.). Discuss the instrument you intend to use in your research proposal and how you intend to address the instrument’s validity and reliability noting the different types of each.
Student expectations for Forum questions:
Your initial Forum posts require a minimum of a 500 word substantive response. All follow-up responses (minimum of 2) should require 250-300 words.
Students will also be required to respond to at least two (2) other students posting with significant comments that demonstrate critical thinking by asking additional questions or adding to the body of knowledge started. If you argue, controversial issues use a reference to support your argument that adds credibility to your position. Your response to your peers work should be engaging and informative with good substance. Your responses should contribute in a meaningful way to helping advance our knowledge of the topics the class explores.
