Research Proposal Assignment

For this assignment you must have proper APA headings for each section below:
Abstract with keywords: this is no more than 150 words and describes very generally the whole paper. Please include 5 relevant keywords.
Introduction: Provide a paragraph or two opening up the paper and describing the problem
Problem Statement/Literature Review: Spend 1-2 pages discussing the population and the problem you are researching. Do not simply copy and paste what you already did but rather expand on it. I will be looking for five APA citations after 2008 in this section supporting your work
Research Questions: Spend half a page presenting your finalized research questions and hypotheses.
Methods: Really work to refine your method and approach. Expand on what you did in assignment two and reflect back on what we have learned all semester. Again this is not a copy and paste but rather a refinement and elaboration. I am looking for 2 full pages here.
Data Collection: Discuss the selection of data collection approach and also the instruments/technique you used. Provide justification for your choices. Discuss cultural appropriateness, validity, and reliability of instruments. Include the final protocols and instruments you selected in an appendix. This will be about 1.5-2 pages
Data Analysis: Spend one page considering the kind of data you are collecting and how you would analyze it. I am not looking for a lot of complexity here so really just try your best. How will you present your findings? Charts? Graphs? Word counts? Video snippets or quotes? Have fun here and think about different learning styles relative to research.
Data Impact, Next Steps and Application: Spend one page discussing the impact and application of this project. Discuss explicitly micro, mezzo and macro implications as well as any social justice implications. Where are the barriers to advocating for your population? Are there ethical conflicts? What is the role of social work? What is the role of the consumer? What are the next steps to really target and change the problem you identified?
Conclusion: Spend no more than half a page closing the paper and providing final thoughts
Reference List: this will include all the references you mentioned in proper APA format.

Notes: All papers must be in proper APA format including headings, tone, voice, citation style, as well as inclusion of page numbers and a reference list (see links below). Remember that APA style assumes double spaced pages. When I ask for 4 pages, I mean 4 DOUBLE SPACED pages. Pay attention to the use of personal pronouns (I, me, we, our) which are not appropriate in formal research writing. You can cite the book but I am asking that you also look for outside resources that are academic in nature. Websites (unless governmental) and Wikipedia will not be counted. They are not generally considered to be accurate.

This is a very important paper that counts for a significant amount of a final grade. The topic of the paper is a research proposal will look at alcohol use among high school students and poor grades. In addition to the paper requirements that I have already noted, the paper should deal with the following: Research Question: How strong is the correlation between poor grade performance and students who use alcohol? Research Methods: Mixed methods using Quantitative and Qualitative methods. -This should include a questionnaire for students to complete. -It should also include interviews of teachers and school counselors. If you have any questions or need any clarification, please do not hesitate to contact me.
