Week 9 – assignment: draft a potential quantitative research proposal | Psy 7103 | Northcentral University


Determine a potential study you might want to conduct in which you would need to collect numerical data. This can be related to the studies you identified in Week 1 or a completely new topic. The benefits of using the topics you examined in Week 1 and Week 2 are that you have a database of references to work from now. But if you have decided or prefer to work with a different topic, that is fine.  Draft a quantitative research design plan to address the following:

  • State the research problem. Support it with five scholarly resources.
  • Explain how you could use quantitative methodology to address your research problem. Specifically, identify and discuss a design that is associated with quantitative methodology that you would consider to answer your research questions.
  • State the purpose of the research effort. Make sure the purpose is aligned with the problem.
  • List one or more quantitative research questions that would be appropriate for a quantitative study. Make sure your research questions are aligned with your research problem and your purpose statement.
  • State a hypothesis.
  • Discuss and justify your sample and population.
  • Explain how you would recruit participants.

Length: 5-7 pages, not including title and reference pages
