Each Working Paper Assignment must be 5-8 pages and include 5-10 citations properly formatted according to current APA standards.

Research Proposal Assignment

You are required to write a 10-page minimum qualitative research proposal directed at investigating a specific public policy concern. This document will culminate from your Working Paper Assignments. Given the sequence of working papers, you have completed, each addressing an aspect of the research proposal development process, you are to generate the final proposal. The final draft of this research proposal should conform to the commonly understood elements of a qualitative investigation, i.e. statement of the research question and sub-questions under investigation; a brief review of the literature surrounding the question(s); the practical and theoretical significance of the question(s); description and rationale for the methods employed; description of the proposed means of investigation, and the approach to interpretation. Give the reasons why such research should be undertaken, highlighting the implications for future policy decision-making. Make sure all additional research report components that may be required are well-labeled: i.e. proposal’s anticipated milestones, required resources, timeframe for accomplishment, letter of transmittal, foundations, and professional audiences that would welcome the proposed study. The entire document is produced according to current APA formatting.
