Major Assignment.

Part 1

  • Create a title page for your Major Assignment 1. Use the Major Assignment 1: Developing a Research Topic for a Qualitative Study Assignment Overview and Guidelines for proper formatting of your paper.
  • Write a problem statement based on your topic of study. Develop a 1- to 2-paragraph statement that is the result of a review of the articles you located on your topic.
    1. Briefly describe the phenomena you are interested in studying.
    2. Briefly summarize the key findings or what is understood about this phenomena based on the three articles you reviewed.
    3. Briefly identify the “gap”—what do you see as an important, relevant, next step in learning more about this topic that would be appropriate for a qualitative study.

Part 2

  • Write a purpose statement using terminology of qualitative research. The purpose statement should contain:
    1. A statement using the following template: The purpose of this qualitative study is to [choose one: explore, describe, understand, explain] the meaning/experience/culture/stories of [phenomenon of interest] in [population/setting].
    2. A justification of why the purpose of your study is suited for the qualitative approach in terms of:
      • The phenomena you choose
      • The “fit” with a constructivist epistemology and ontology
      • The relevance of the naturalistic setting or context to the phenomena of interest
  1. Based on your knowledge of reflexivity, explain your relationship to the problem; and the issues of bias and positionality to be addressed. Include a brief description of the setting and possible sources of data.
  • Write a research question using terminology of qualitative research. (Note: This could be the same research question you created in your Discussion 1 for this week ONLY if it applies to your topic of study for this Assignment.)

    The research question should incorporate and mirror the purpose statement using the following template: What is the

    meaning/experience/culture/stories of [phenomenon of interest] in [population/setting]?

  • Include your updated Annotated Bibliography section.

(The above section should have already been completed in our previous assignment)

Major Assignment 2 

Part 1: Introduction

  1. Write a background statement of approximately 1–2 pages that includes:
    1. What you have learned about social change as a social issue.
    2. What you have learned about social change as a research problem. Support your insights with academic citations from the Learning Resources.
    3. Describe the gap that your study will address.
  2. From the gap, create a brief purpose statement that is aligned with the following research question:

What is the meaning of social change for Walden graduate students?

 Part 2: Role of the Researcher

  • Review your analytic memos, field notes, etc., written during each aspect of the data collection process, and examine your role and experience and how that is shaping your experience (reflexivity).
  • Describe the roles you are portraying in this research effort (i.e., a graduate student, classmate, interviewer, etc.).
  • Identify any ethical issues that could or did arise during the data collection processes (i.e., these could include doing a study within one’s own work environment, conflict of interest, or power differentials).

 

Part 3: Results

During this course, you have coded your two Scholars of Change videos, you have conducted and coded your phone interview, and you have gathered data from the Walden social change website and any other documents or websites you might have included. For this Part 3 of your Major Assignment, you will write up the results of your findings. You will include the following in your write-up:

  1. Data Sources—briefly describe each data source including location, duration of data collection, how data were recorded, and unusual circumstances.
    • Two Scholars of Change videos
    • One phone interview
    • Resources from the Walden social change website
  2. Instrumentation—briefly describe the type of instrumentation you used for your data collection.
    1. Who developed each data collection tool and what is the date of publication?
    2. Where and with which participant group has it been used previously?
    3. How appropriate is it for current study and include whether modifications will be or were needed?
  3. Data Analysis—based on the data sources in “A.”, provide a detailed analysis to include the following:
    • Report the process used to move inductively from coded units to larger representations including categories and themes.
    • Describe the specific codes, categories, and themes that emerged from the data using quotations as needed to emphasize their importance.
      1. 1st cycle—describe, give examples.
      2. 2nd cycle—describe, give examples/moving from codes to categories.
      3. Identify themes—provide examples and illustrate your results with a figure or a chart.
