Please read this assignment carefully. We are beginning to gather articles on our topic, and we will use them for our next assignment. Here however, we will discuss the key aspects of a literature review in supporting our proposal during design, data collection and while explaining results. Please make sure to include citations.
Review of the Literature
In Module 1, you learned about the literature review process, which you will employ as part of your final research proposal in M5 Assignment 2 RA 2. In preparation for writing this literature review, in M3 Assignment 2 RA 1, you will submit an annotated bibliography of 6 peer-reviewed articles from resources and locate articles related to the topic of your research in the following categories:
- 2 quantitative studies
- 2 qualitative studies
- 1 mixed-methods study
- 1 theoretical or research design of your choice
A strong literature review not only plays a foundational role for setting up a research proposal and/or dissertation but also plays an important role in the results and discussion section that is presented after the data has been collected and analyzed.
- Why is the literature review a needed piece of a research proposal? How can a weak literature review diminish a research proposal?
- Once the data has been collected and you are moving into the completion of the research report, how will you continue to pull from your literature review in the results and discussion section of your report?
- What search strategies did you use to locate up coming RAs?
Review the points of others and add additional examples, challenging a response or drawing conclusions from the response.
Post your response in a minimum of 300
