The concept of Methodology

The concept of Methodology

The concept of Methodology

Provide the most prominent hypothesis in your proposed study and place it in a simple equation

This assignment in a combination of the previous two key concept assignments with the additional requirement of executing the concepts through the application of real items that would be appropriate for actual research. Students must provide the correct academic definition, followed by the layman’s explanation (changes required if initial submissions were faulty as explained in professor feedback on previous submissions), and then operationalize and insert the appropriate items from their chosen research topic and the articles they deconstructed earlier in the course. This assignment is similar to the development of a research proposal and students should take note of all the information from previous assignments along with feedback provided. Files MUST be titled with last name, followed by first initial, course number, and specific assignment. Ex., GSnicklefritzCJC 401Application. Download the attached document and complete the assignment as instructed.

Part 2 of assignment
Students are required to prepare and annotate a 10 slide power point presentation that explains the completed key concept application assignment they executed. The power point should synopsize all of the relevant information from the final paper with enough information for reader to understand their projects. Make sure there is not too much or too little information on the individual slides (font must be big enough to show on a screen – approx. 26) and annotate each slide with the information you would add if you were to have the opportunity to present the proposal in person
