For this discussion, you will identify a study that will be used as a model study throughout the course. It is permissible to use the study that you described in the Week 1 Project as long as it includes details regarding the below-mentioned topics. If your study doesn’t describe these topics, then you will need to locate and identify another study. Your model study should include a description of the following topics:
Background (description of the problem to be examined or evaluated)
Methodology (explanation of how data was collected and analyzed)
Analysis and findings
Note: For this part of the discussion, you simply need to identify the chosen “model” study, with complete reference.
Researchers usually encounter barriers as they conduct a study. Failure to recognize potential barriers can be costly and may even derail a project entirely if unexpected barriers cannot be overcome.
For this discussion, discuss the research question(s) that were composed in Week 1 Project.
On the basis of your discussion, respond to the following points:
Speculate on the barriers you might encounter as you seek to investigate your research questions.
Describe how you would design your study in order to minimize the impact of the barriers that you encounter.
Note: You can refer to the assigned readings to seek some general ideas of commonly found obstacles and apply them to investigate your specific research questions.
