In Milestone One, you draft the “Introduction” section of your research study report. Once you are complete, use this drop box to submit your Milestone One assignment. My research study from the provided list for my final project is about Partnership After Prison: Couple Relationships During Reentry by Megan Comfort, in Journal of Offender Rehabilitation
Overview: The final project for this course is the creation of a research study report. For the first milestone, you need to select an appropriate study from the Final Project Research Study Options document found in the Module One Reading and Resources. Then you will draft the first of three sections that will make up your report.
Prompt: Draft the “Introduction” section of your research study report, which includes the following critical elements:
- Identify the specific focus of the research. In other words, what was this study about?
- Explain the purpose of the study. What was the study trying to achieve?
- Describe the specific characteristics of the group being studied. What was the population? What was the sample size? What were its demographics?
Submit your Milestone One submission to the assignment page in Module Two. You will be graded based on the rubric information below.
You will also be sharing your ideas for your introduction to the discussion board for feedback. Make sure to respond to your peers with thoughts and information to help them improve their work for the final project submission (later in the course).
Guidelines for Submission: Your draft of the “Introduction” section of your research study report should be 1 page in length (plus a cover page and references)
and must be written in APA format. Use double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins. Cite all references in APA format.
Note: This rubric is tailored to this assignment and awards full points for “Proficient.” For the final project, you will need to demonstrate “Exemplary” achievement to earn full points. To see how you will be graded on your final project, review the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document (in the Assignment Guidelines and Rubrics section of the course).
