Assignment: Research Proposal – Draft of Method SectionThis Assignment is part of the Final Project’s ResearchProposal that will be turned in at the end of Unit 9. In light of thefact that this Assignment will be part of your MSP portfolio and shouldrepresent the very best of your writing, the Assignment has beendesigned to be completed in portions to permit feedback and revision.The Assignment for this unit will produce a draft of your Methodsection; the Unit 4 Assignment was a draft of the Introduction section;and the Final Project in Unit 9 will incorporate revisions of both ofthese earlier assignments as well as an abstract.As noted, this Assignment represents the Method sectionof your Research Proposal. It should have a title page and referencespage but should be formatted per the APA Publication Manual’s outline ofa Method section (see page 44 of the APA Publication Manual for agraphic and description of the formatting). When it is revised forinclusion in the Final Project, some changes will need to be made, butif you have done well here, those changes will be minor.The Method section of a Research Proposal is like theinstructions portion of a recipe. It outlines in very specific termseverything that is necessary to cook the dish (to perform the researchand collect the data). This includes describing the ingredients in veryspecific detail (describing the participants and how they are recruited,describing any apparatus or other materials necessary for the researchto move forward) and then giving very detailed instructions on how makethe dish (the procedure…how one will do the actual research). As withany other recipe, if anything is vague or left out of the description,the result will NOT be what was intended.The Method section for the Research Proposal in thiscourse will have five subsections, arranged in this order: Participants,Apparatus/Materials, Measures, Procedure, and Ethical Considerations.Apart from these subsections, there should be no other material in theMethod section.Under “Participants,” the population to be sampled fromshould be clearly described and the method of sampling (random,stratified, etc.) described along with the rationale for why that methodwill be used and how the actual recruitment will be performed.“Apparatus/Materials” will describe any equipment orother materials that will be needed for the research. If you intend touse a questionnaire or inventory, it should be clearly identified here.The “Measures” subsection describes the variables beingassessed in the study. Describe the independent and dependent variables,how they will be analyzed, and how you will assess the reliability andvalidity of the measures.The “Procedure” subsection must be completed in enoughdetail to ensure that someone else reading it could replicate theexperiment exactly as proposed. Referring back to the recipe metaphor:if the recipe doesn’t clearly and exactly describe every step, eachperson using the recipe is likely to wind up with a very different foodat the end. The procedure section should also clearly indicate what typeof experimental design is being used (“quantitative, between-subjectsdesign”).The final subsection, “Ethical Considerations” willdiscuss appropriate ethical issues that might arise from performing theresearch: informed consent, privacy issues, etc. Don’t simply give alaundry list of the APA standards; discuss them in terms of yourproposal and how you will ensure that you are in accord with theguidelines. If there are BACB guidelines that might also come into playhere, they should also be discussed.Assignment DirectionsTo recap in an outline format:Formal title page (this title page will not be included in the Final Project)Method sectionParticipants subsection (describing population to be tested, describing sampling plan)Materials subsection (describing all equipment and materials needed)Measures subsection (describing variables to be controlled/measured as well as a discussion of reliability and validity)Procedure subsection (detailed description of how the research is tobe done, sufficient to permit replication. Clearly label researchdesign)Ethical considerations subsection (discuss APA ethical guidelineswith respect to how they must be implemented for the research. ABAstudents should also discuss anything relevant from BACB guidelines.)References (materials from this page and the Unit 4 Assignment’s references page will be concatenated in the Final Project)The Assignment should:Follow Assignment directions (review grading rubric for best results).Use correct APA formatting per the APA Publication Manual, 6th Edition.Demonstrate college-level communication through the composition of original materials in Standard American English.

How To Place An Order
- Clіck оn the “Place оrder” tab at the tоp menu оr “Order Nоw” іcоn at the bоttоm, and a new page wіll appear wіth an оrder fоrm tо be fіlled.
- Fіll іn yоur paper’s іnfоrmatіоn and clіck “PRІCE CALCULATІОN” at the bоttоm tо calculate yоur оrder prіce.
- Fіll іn yоur paper’s academіc level, deadlіne and the requіred number оf pages frоm the drоp-dоwn menus.
- Clіck “FІNAL STEP” tо enter yоur regіstratіоn detaіls and get an accоunt wіth us fоr recоrd keepіng.
- Clіck оn “PRОCEED TО CHECKОUT” at the bоttоm оf the page.
- Frоm there, the payment sectіоns wіll shоw, fоllоw the guіded payment prоcess, and yоur оrder wіll be avaіlable fоr оur wrіtіng team tо wоrk оn іt.
Nоte, оnce lоgged іntо yоur accоunt; yоu can clіck оn the “Pendіng” buttоn at the left sіdebar tо navіgate, make changes, make payments, add іnstructіоns оr uplоad fіles fоr the оrder created. e.g., оnce lоgged іn, clіck оn “Pendіng” and a “pay” оptіоn wіll appear оn the far rіght оf the оrder yоu created, clіck оn pay then clіck оn the “Checkоut” оptіоn at the next page that appears, and yоu wіll be able tо cоmplete the payment.
Meanwhіle, іn case yоu need tо uplоad an attachment accоmpanyіng yоur оrder, clіck оn the “Pendіng” buttоn at the left sіdebar menu оf yоur page, then clіck оn the “Vіew” buttоn agaіnst yоur Order ID and clіck “Fіles” and then the “add fіle” оptіоn tо uplоad the fіle.
Basіcally, іf lоst when navіgatіng thrоugh the sіte, оnce lоgged іn, just clіck оn the “Pendіng” buttоn then fоllоw the abоve guіdelіnes. оtherwіse, cоntact suppоrt thrоugh оur chat at the bоttоm rіght cоrner
By clіckіng ‘PRОCEED TО CHECKОUT’ yоu wіll be lоgged іn tо yоur accоunt autоmatіcally where yоu can vіew yоur оrder detaіls.
