Week 2 Assignment: Action Research Chapter 1 Revised
The purpose of this assignment is to formalize your chapter 1 given the feedback from your professor in Week 1 and begin building toward chapter 3 Methodology.
Create a title for your study that is representative of the subject or topic (i.e., title is often a derivative of the research question or the research question itself; see examples of students’ thesis papers/ARPs posted in course).
Reiterate your proposed area of study including your problem statement, rationale your research question, and your significance statement from week 1 (Revised). In addition, include the following essential specifics; review examples posted to get an idea of the detail needed for these elements:
Setting or site where study will be undertaken
The participants or population (age, range, gender, students, teachers, colleagues, etc.)
Support your chosen area of focus (problem statement and research questions) using the three sources from the week 1 paper and three additional sources (these should be peer-reviewed articles) which will serve as the basis of your literature review (Chapter Two).
5-7 pages excluding the title page and references.
This assignment should use a minimum of 3 additional quality references (e.g., .org, .edu, peer-reviewed journals, etc.) obtained from the library and/or scholarly online sources (added on to the 6 you used in the week 1 paper). You will need your APA manual for this assignment.
This assignment is worth 10% of your grade.
Please consider using the Writing Studio for feedback on this assignment. You can find directions on how to use the service in student resources.

Choosing data to solve a problem
Welcome to Week 2!
At this point, you have chosen to either complete an action research project, or to create a formal data-based improvement plan. In both instances, there are two major challenges 1) narrowing the topic of interest into a measurable research question or specific data point to focus on, and 2) Obtaining permission from a site to conduct research (or gather data), that will give you the information you need. This week we will begin working through these areas.
This week you should begin completing the CITI Training (Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative). The CITI Training informs students about ethical and legal research standards. The training takes several hours and may be completed in more than one sitting. For IRB approval you MUST SCORE 80% or better on each module. At the conclusion of your training you will want to download your scores so you have them handy. Go to the following link: https://www.citiprogram.org to access the website, but you may also find this link under Student Resources. Take the student version (Basic Education) of the CITI Training (the student version is free) and select “Keiser University” when it prompts you for Institutional Membership. If you have questions, please contact your instructor for assistance. These modules should be completed prior to submitting your IRB Application.
This is what my teached sent to me:
when you take the course again, you will have to choose a different health issue and apply each week’s theory to it. At the and you discuss which would apply best. You uses SCT for the last paper but applied it to a completely different topic.when you take the course again, you will have to choose a different health issue and apply each week’s theory to it.

I am available to have a conversation with you about this but you need to change your topic (certainly narrow it) and do something for a DBIP or ARP that is more appropriate.
