Instructions Writing Activity: Construct Research Questions and Hypotheses

Continue your work on the template provided in Week 2 of the course. Your assignment is to draft two or more research questions. These questions must align with the qualitative or quantitative approach selected earlier in this course.

· Qualitative: Research questions must be aligned with the purpose statement.  Qualitative research questions should be open-ended and reflect the nature of the qualitative design (avoid yes/no and closed-ended questions).  Caution: Qualitative research questions should not be confused with qualitative interview questions.

· Quantitative: Research questions must align with the purpose statement and include the proposed hypothesis(es). Ensure the research questions and hypotheses are aligned with the purpose statement. The research questions and hypotheses must be directly answerable, specific, and testable based on the data collected. Review the instrument you plan to collect data from or review the secondary data you identified for your study; these items can give you important cues for developing your research questions.

· Hypotheses (Quantitative Only)

Review the article  Developing the Research Hypothesis (Toledo & Toledo-Pereyra, 2011). Both null hypotheses and alternative hypotheses should be stated. Each must directly correspond with a research question.  Hypotheses must be stated in testable, potentially negatable form with each variable operationalized.   Note: Each hypothesis represents one distinct testable prediction.  Upon testing, each hypothesis must be entirely supported or entirely negated.

Length: .5 - 2 pages, depending on the number and type of research questions and whether hypotheses are required.
