Use just the references (8) which i uploaded to write Introduction should be 3 pages and review of literature should be 6 pages. At the end of introduction write the statement of purpose which includes the purpose of he study, who will be the participants, and the type of research. please be specific about the type of research that will be. Do not forget to write subquestion. please look at the criteria and follow it:
INTRODUCTION AND STATEMENT OF PURPOSE (15 points)
1. Topic of the proposal is focused and clearly stated.
2. Major educational concepts are identified and are clearly defined.
3. Relevant, concise background information is included (including as appropriate, statistical background on the topic, historical or socio-cultural background, theoretical concepts and framework, and brief, integrated summaries of prior research).
4. More than half of sources in reference list are cited.
5. A brief rationale is presented explaining reasons why proposed study is needed based on gaps in past research.
6. Purpose of the proposed study is clearly stated and the type of research proposed is identified.
REVIEW OF LITERATURE (70 points)
Research and Theoretical Support (20 points)
1. The methods used in research-based studies are clearly described.
2. The results presented in studies are clearly described.
3. The most important theories or concepts relevant to the topic are discussed and analyzed based on research evidence.
Analysis of Research (15 points)
4. Key issues, conflicts or debates related to the topic are identified and discussed.
5. Conclusions of studies are examined to see if they are supported by the results reported.
6. Strong or weak research methods used in selected studies are critically analyzed to highlight problems or strengths in sampling, measurement, or other methods used in the studies.
7. The results and methodologies from different studies are compared to explain conflicting results or show generalizability of findings.
Sensitivity to Diversity and Control of Bias (10 points)
8. Sensitivity to diversity is shown by identifying gaps in research related to diversity (e.g., whether results can be applied to persons of different social classes, genders, ethnicities, and/or abilities).
9. Review is well balanced in that different perspectives are considered and/or studies reporting conflicting results are examined.
Organization (15 points)
10. Review begins with an overview paragraph and then presents the least related studies briefly. Later in the review, the most related studies are discussed in detail (V organization).
11. Good transitions are provided between paragraphs to connect or relate different issues or studies.
12. Review is organized by issues or subtopics with related studies summarized together. (So it does not just discuss one study after another with few connections.
Overall Quality of Review (10 points)
13. Review provides an in-depth understanding of the current state of knowledge and research about the problem/topic and questions that remain to be addressed.
14. Review concludes with a summary of key findings and a brief explanation of how the proposed research study will improve practice or extend understanding of the topic.
RATIONALE AND RESEARCH SUBQUESTIONS OR HYPOTHESIS AND OPERATIONAL DEFINITIONS (10 points)
Rationale for Study
1. A clear and strong rationale, based on prior research, is presented for the research hypothesis or research questions.
Research Question and Subquestions (Should be included for Descriptive Survey, Qualitative or Action Research)
2. Statement of Purpose from the Introduction is restated as a research question and broken into subquestions.
3. Subquestions clearly identify areas of in-depth focus for the study without predetermining what researcher will find.
Research Hypothesis and Operational Definitions (Should be included for Group Experimental, Single Subject, Correlational or Causal Comparative Research)
2. Research hypothesis is clear and concise and predicts the results of the study for all groups and all variables.
3. All dependent or measured variables are defined using operational definitions.
LITERATURE SEARCH AND REFERENCES (15 points)
1. Literature search yields a sufficient number (8-12) of relevant sources to provide a framework for the proposed study.
2. Most articles used are current (less than 10 years old), empirical, research-based sources
a. At least eight articles should be empirical research studies with methods and results clearly described.
b. One or two practitioner pieces or opinion pieces may be included.
c. One or two literature reviews can be included as well.
3. All references are cited in text and all sources cited in text are included in Reference list.
OVERALL PROPORAL CRITERIA (10 points)
1. The proposal is well written and free of grammatical errors.
2. APA style is well used throughout the paper (title page, page headers, language sensitivity, use of numbers, quotations, citations in the body of the paper, reference page).
3. Educational research concepts are used appropriately throughout the proposal.
4. Citations are used appropriately to document sources throughout the paper.
