RES 720 WEEK 1 Quantitative Research Descriptions and Outline Research Steps

For this assignment, you are going to write a paper about quantitative research to ensure you have a solid understanding of the foundational elements before moving on to constructing the elements of a mock study.

Write a 700- to 1,050-word paper with an introduction describing the general differences between Quantitative and Qualitative Research. Following this comparison, describe the characteristics of descriptive, experimental, quasi-experimental, correlational and multiple regression designs. Provide references for this section of the paper and ensure that you write in the third person to set the appropriate scholarly tone. Subsequent to these initial paragraphs, continue with an indented outline expressing an area of interest for a mock study that you will follow throughout the course. Use only a sentence or two for each of the following points in the outline:

  1. General Topic Area
  2. Specific Topic Area
  3. General Problem
  4. Specific Problem (Ensure you state this as a problem, not a benefit or a question.)
  5. Purpose of the study (This is much like your problem, but stated as a purpose and includes the value of the study)
  6. Research Question/s (RQ/s) that you intend on addressing in the mock study (Ensure that your RQ/s is/are overarching). This section of your paper does not require references.

Ensure that your outline is aligned in other words, it makes sense throughout in that you are talking about the same thing from point to point.

Summarize your paper with a conclusion at the end of your Microsoft® Word document including a justification for your choices. Support your choices by including references.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.
