    1. How many participants would you like to use and why? What are the inclusion characteristics, i.e., what must they have in order to be included in your study (for example, gender, diagnosis, age, personality traits, etc.)?

    1. What sampling technique will be used to collect your sample? What population does your sample generalize to?

 

    1. What are the variables in your study? HINT: Refer back to your hypothesis or hypotheses.

 

    1. Provide operational definitions for each variable.

 

    1. How will you measure each variable? Discuss the reliability and validity of these measures in general terms.

 

    1. What technique will be used for data collection (e.g., observation, survey, interview, archival, etc.)?

 

    1. What type of research design is being used?

 

    1. Briefly discuss the procedure that would be followed when conducting the research.

  • Introduction to your topic and related issues (variables)
  • Purpose statement
  • Literature review
  • Research question and hypothesis
  • The research methodology to be used
  • Any questionnaires, interview questions, or research tools that you intend to use
  • How your results will be measured and analyzed
  • How your results will be presented
