    4. Research design, with brief description (e.g.: say not only "this will be a quasi-experimental study" or "this is an ethnographic study"; state also the reasons for this design and how is the sample structured.
    5. Data gathering procedures, with example of instrument(s) if possible (the instruments samples usually go as appendixes).
    6. Consideration of ethical issues.
    7. Quantitative studies: statistical analysis; describe what statistical procedures you will use and for what. Qualitative studies: what procedures you will use for analysis, categories, coding system, how to extract conclusions.

Research Proposal Checklist

 

List of Questions for Undergraduate-Level Research Proposal

 
  1. Is the problem or research question clearly identified? Is the basic research problem well formulated, or is it poorly and vaguely structured? Is it stated in a few clear sentences?
  2. Has the area of concern regarding the problem been identified; i.e. has the need that exists to research the problem been clarified?
  3. Does the literature review provide an adequate theoretical framework for the study? Have relevant sources been used to identify the problem?
  4. Is the literature review oriented to identify the background and rationale for the problem, or it is just a perfunctory list of authors and quotes?
  5. Are the cites academically acceptable? Is there a high proportion of them from secondary sources or from the Internet?
  6. Has a suitable hypothesis(es) been formulated (quantitative research), or has a suitable research purpose (qualitative research) been stated?
  7. Have the variables in the hypotheses been operationally defined (quantitative research)? Have the key concept(s) of the study been defined in an acceptable manner (qualitative research)?
  8. Have been established objectives for the study? e.g.: What will be obtained as outcome? How will the results be used?
  9. Is the project and research design well structured and outlined, or is it poorly articulated?
  10. Has the research methodology been clearly defined? Would anyone with general knowledge of research methods be able to identify what type of study is this?
  11. Is there a clear correspondence between the stated aims of the research and the chosen methodology?
  12. Have the measurement procedures and/or instruments to be used been identified (quantitative research)? Have the data-gathering procedures and/or qualitative instruments to be used been identified?
  13. Have the sampling methodology and data collection steps adequately clarified?
  14. Is there an indication about how the data will be analyzed, either quantitative or qualitative or both? Are these procedures appropriate to the aims of the research?
  15. Has why it is important to undertake this research been stated? For whom will it be of value and of importance?
  16. Is the problem researchable and is the study feasible?
  17. Is the proposal appropriately written in APA style regarding sections, headings/subheadings, citations, figures, tables, and references?
  18. Are paragraphs well structured in the sense of presenting a main idea and developing it?
  19. Are the paragraphs adequately concatenated?
  20. Has the proposal being carefully reviewed in terms of spelling, grammar and word choice? Is there any appropriate use of "I" or "we"?

 

 

Research Proposal Rubric (100 Points)

An expectation of this course is that each student does an excellent proposal. I present this rubric to clarify to you what I mean by "excellent." Use it as self-reference to evaluate your work before submission.

Component A, A- B+, B, B- C+,C, C-, D Your
Points
1-100
Presentation Organization
Paper is professionally presented with regard to mechanics, layout and appearance. APA guidelines have been followed. Paper is well organized with well-constructed paragraphs and subheadings. Paper includes a cover sheet, abstract, body of paper, and optionally appendices Paper is somewhat professionally presented with regard to mechanics, layout and appearance. Most guidelines have been followed. Paper keeps at least major organization sections. Most of the required components are included.
Paper is adequately presented with regard to mechanics, layout and appearance. Key guidelines have been followed. Paper is not well organized. Only key required components are included. An attempt is made at using APA, but it is not correctly formatted. 
 
Introduction
Introduction has a sharp, distinct focus. The reader has a clear understanding of the purpose of the research. Connections to larger issues in the selected discipline are made. Introduction is somewhat focused. The reader has an understanding of the purpose of the research.
Introduction is vague. The purpose of the research is not clearly stated, or formulated in such broad terms that is difficult to research.
 

Research Question(s)
Problem is clearly identified. The research question(s) clearly articulated, appropriate, and measurable. A clear case is made for its selection. If the study is descriptive, instead of a problem the researcher clearly states purposes of the study. Problem is somewhat identified and a case is partially made for its selection. Research question(s) can be inferred although they are not clearly stated.
Problem is neither clearly identified nor justified. Research questions unclear or potentially inappropriate.
 

Literature Review 
Information is balanced and clearly connected to the research question(s), and it is taken from all resources. The review flows smoothly, is clear and easy to follow. Citations and quotations follow APA 5th edition guidelines. At least 10 resources of varying types are integrated in the review and cited in references. Information is connected to the topic and is taken from most of the resources. The review is relevant to the topic although not completely organized. Citations and quotations are generally used correctly. Five-eight resources are integrated in the review and cited in references. Information is somewhat connected to the topic and is taken from some or most of the resources. The review may be unclear and difficult to follow. Citations and quotations may be used incorrectly. Less than 4 good resources are integrated in the review and/or improperly cited in references.  

Research Design
Ethical Issues
Research method(s) and tool(s) are clearly identified; research questions are articulated, not implicit; method/steps of data collection are summarized. Methods are appropriate for the question(s). Rationale for research methods is convincing. Human subject research issues are carefully addressed. Research method(s) and tool(s) are identified; method/steps of data collection are summarized. Methods are generally appropriate for the question(s). Rationale for research methods is not well defined. Human subject protection not fully addressed. Research method(s) and tool(s) are unclear; research questions are not clearly articulated; method/steps of data collection are vague. Methods do not appear appropriate for the research questions and time given. There may be some questions about how the privacy of participating students is being protected.  
Data Gathering and
Statistical or Qualitative Analysis 
Procedures or instruments for data gathering are clearly defined. Variables are operationalized or qualitative constructs specified. Examples of questions are included. Suggested statistical analyses or qualitative procedures are coherent with data-gathering procedures. Procedures or instruments for data gathering are at lest identified. At least major variables are operationalized or qualitative constructs specified. Statistical analyses or qualitative procedures are somewhat suggested but not clearly defined. There are only very brief and vague indications about procedures or instruments for data gathering. Statistical analysis or qualitative procedures are simply mentioned but not described, or are completely absent.
