Describe specific aspects of the research problem that are addressed in the study and why the specific focus was chosen (issue of internal validity). Define the boundaries of the study by identifying populations included and excluded and theories most related to the area of study that were not investigated (this is an issue of external validity).

Assignment Question

Starting with Pg.8-9 on Study template complete the following: Definitions: Provide concise definitions of the independent variable, dependent variable(s), and any covariates (with more detailed analysis of coding, etc.) Define terms used in the study that have multiple meanings (e.g., socioeconomic status, educator, health service professional, etc.).

Scope and Delimitations: Describe specific aspects of the research problem that are addressed in the study and why the specific focus was chosen (issue of internal validity). Define the boundaries of the study by identifying populations included and excluded and theories most related to the area of study that were not investigated (this is an issue of external validity). Address potential generalizability.

Summary and Conclusions: Concisely summarize major themes in the literature.

Summarize what is known as well as what is not known in the discipline related to the topic of study. Describe how the present study fills at least one of the gaps in e practical and will extend knowledge in the discipline.
