Project #92223 - Research

 

  • Application: Conducting Qualitative Research
     
        "If you build it, he will come," is a famous line from the 1989 movie Field of Dreams. People starting a new business hope that people will take advantage of the services they offer. But what happens if the public does not respond as anticipated? How do you determine the needs of the public? How can you target your research efforts to engage certain portions of a population?
     
      Program evaluation procedures can help you identify the needs of a population as you develop programs. It can also help you identify portions of the population who are not accessing services once a program is implemented. In this assignment, you examine issues related to access to services and how program evaluation procedures can be used to address those issues, and you evaluate a meta-analysis of marriage and relationship education programs.
     
      The assignment: (2–3 pages)
    • Review the article, "Does Marriage and Relationship Education Work? A Meta-Analytic Study," and provide a brief summary of the issues related to disadvantaged and ethnically diverse populations.
    • How would you as a researcher increase participation of disadvantaged and ethnically diverse populations in marriage and relationship education programs?
    • What types of measures and data collection methods would you employ to obtain more reliable and generalizable results?
