Research question and methodologies:
This assignment is an opportunity for you to bring together the understandings about research questions and methodologies that you have developed throughout the unit, and use these as the basis for discussing the methodological approach that would best suit a research project or literature review based on your research question.
Please note that my research question is “Do assessments increase a student’s academic achievement?”
Re-state your research question and briefly discuss how and why this has developed since the first and second assignments.
Based on your question, choose a methodological approach that will best serve your research purposes.
1. Explain your methodological approach and why you have chosen it. The detailed rationale needs to justify how your methodological choices support your research purposes.
2. Why does the approach fit your research question? Support your rationale with references from the unit materials.
3. Describe your methodological approach. For example, will you have an ethnographic approach, or use action research, or conduct a survey, or a mixed methods approach, etc.?
Alignment of methodology with research question:
Restate your research question and explain how the methodological approach fits your research question.
