EAD806 - Applied Research Paper

This course will focus on the development and successful completion (meets the program degree criteria) of an applied research project carried out under the direct supervision of an appropriate member of the faculty. Research papers will be based on the research proposals developed in the Research, Methods and Statistical Analysis course and be based on a field-relevant question and an appropriate methodology. Projects will attempt to contribute to their field by further developing research documented in the literature or propose a new direction for further research. Such papers will include a review of the literature (including the foundational work and theoretical component upon which the study is based), definitions of key terms and concepts, field and social relevance of the study, statement of methodology, a discussion of the ethical safeguards taken with human subjects, biases and assumptions, presentation of field and/or lab data. Analysis and interpretation of the data, statement of the applied/practical implications, summary and implications for future research, an abstract and works cited and consulted. Students will also be required to present their findings to the field (e.g. college community or conference presentation, publication, community seminar).
