• The goals and importance of the study

• The roles of the researcher and the participants

1. Discuss the types of data to be collected.

a. Explain the methods and corresponding instruments for data collection.

C. Create a research scenario appropriate for a qualitative research paradigm related to the problem identified in part A. Your scenario should include the following:

• An appropriate research question and hypothesis

• The goals and importance of the study

• The roles of the researcher and the participants

1. Discuss the types of data to be collected.

a. Explain the methods and corresponding instruments for data collection.

D. Create a research scenario appropriate for an action research paradigm related to the problem identified in part A. Your scenario should include the following:

• An appropriate research question and hypothesis

• The goals and importance of the study

• The roles of the researcher and the participants

1. Discuss the types of data to be collected.

a. Explain the methods and corresponding instruments for data collection.

E. Recommend which research scenario would be most beneficial to your instructional setting or field.

1. Justify your recommendation.

F. Develop a literature review of five sources that support the recommendation made in part E.

G. Include all in-text citations and references in APA format.

Note: Please save word-processing documents as *.rtf (Rich Text Format) files.
