Final Research Topic
Topic- Exploring the Impact of COVID-19 Virtual Learning on School-Aged Children
Each student will be expected to submit a research proposal. The project will be developed throughout the semester and will have three parts in total: the topic and the conceptualization; the literature review; and methods sections.
The Introduction and Statement of the Problem is the first section and should contain a discussion of the magnitude and scope of the problem. In this section, you should clearly state the problem and its worthiness for a topic of study. In order to substantiate your claim, statistics that relate to your topic must be used; these statistics are gleaned from websites, newspaper or magazine articles, and journal articles.
The Literature Review grounds the research paper in a theoretical framework. This section is substantiated through peer-reviewed articles. In this section, the student should discuss findings from relevant empirical peer-reviewed research articles on the topic. The review should include at least (5) articles from a journal publication. The articles should date no further than the year 2015.
The Methodology section consists of a detailed plan (this is only a hypothetical plan for research study) that will be followed in executing research. This section will include the following items:
· The research question
o Research and null
· State independent and dependent variables
· Conceptual definitions of independent and dependent variables
· Operational definitions of independent and dependent variables
· Research design
· Description of hypothetical sampling population
