Final Qualitative Research Proposal
The final written assessment will consist of a qualitative research proposal of 4,000-5,000 words (excluding the references section). The purpose of this assignment is twofold. First, it aims to determine which qualitative methods in the academic literature have been most effectively used on your thesis topic, including the detailed specification of at least one draft qualitative research instrument that would be appropriate to your thesis topic. Second, it aims to present a thesis research proposal concentrating exclusively on the qualitative research aspects and focused on the research problem, research questions, literature review, methodology, qualitative research methods (including one detailed instrument), and initial ideas about the anticipated results.
In summary, key considerations for assessing the qualitative research proposal include:
a. Research Problem, Research Questions, Literature Review, Evaluation of approaches to selected topic area (Minimum 25 articles: RQs, results, methods/instruments, research choices, rationales, conclusions and recommendations) /40%
b. Composition and formatting /20%
c. Research methodology and qualitative research methods (including one detailed pilot study design and sample research instruments), initial ideas about the anticipated results /40%
