Research Methodology & Policy Analysis 4 AND 5 HAVE TO BE COMPLETED BY THE SAME WRITER.




Developing a research plan and executing it in its entirety is a long and comprehensive process, but you have learned all of the necessary fundamentals for this during this term. Last week, your assignment was to produce a number of elements plus an outline in preparation for delivering a research plan. You were to locate and review at least 3 external sources, craft research question(s), create one or more hypotheses, determine what research approach and methods you would employ, and forecast what form your research and findings would be in at the end of your study. You submitted this last week and should have received a critiqued version from the instructor.


Assignment Guidelines

  • Revise your Week 4 Key Assignment according to instructor and peer feedback.
  • Next, address the following for your final Key Assignment draft:

Final Key Assignment Draft

  • For your final assignment, you will use the research plan outline you developed last week. Assemble all of the components, and using the tenets you learned this week for writing a refined and integrated paper, write your complete research plan in narrative style. This final product should be at least 1,500–1,750 words. 
  • In your narrative at a minimum, you should do the following:
    • Seamlessly integrate all elements of the research plan.
    • Extensively review the external resources you selected, and identify their relevance for studying your topic.
    • Explain in detail the quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods you plan to employ and what findings you expect these to produce (the type not the specific results).


   Phase Resources:
  • Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
    Official Web site of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Contains information on types of disasters, planning, recovery, rebuilding, and federal assistance.
  • Social Research Methods
    A website for people involved in applied social research and evaluation. You'll find lots of resources and links to other locations on the Web that deal in applied social research methods. The site offers an online statistical advisor that will answer questions and lead you to an appropriate statistical test for your data. It also includes a resource guide for learning about structured conceptual mapping including links to general introductory materials, research and case studies illustrating the use of the method, and information about software. An online hypertext textbook on applied social research methods that covers everything you want to know about defining a research question, sampling, measurement, research design and data analysis is available, and an online workbook about manual (i.e., dice-rolling) and computer simulation exercises of common research designs, for students and researchers to learn how to do simple simulations.
