Assessment name: Quantitative  research design
Description: You will be provided with a quantitative research article to critique. The critique will involve the identification of the strengths and limitations in the design of the study based upon the principles and assumptions of good research design consistent with realising the article’s stated research purpose(s) from a quantitative perspective.

 

On this basis individuals will then develop an alternative research design consistent with realising the research purpose(s), again based on upon the principles of good research design, from a quantitative perspective.

 

Opportunities to practice article critique and designing quantitative research based upon the principles of good research design will be provided in class. Conceptual material to support research design decisions is provided on Blackboard. Note that this assessment does not involve data collection.
