Integrating the Research Process

Integrating the Research Process

Order Description

pick one of the methods for my portion of the group, so you can pick one of the steps assigned in the research process. In after you pick the step let me know so that
I can report it to the group. The directions for this assignment is underneath here. If you can get this done asap that will be good because I don’t even need a full
page.
Thanks,

 

About 15 years ago, before evidence-based practice became a standard to which to aspire, a professor found an article describing a treatment program for substance-
abusing African-American women that incorporated their children and aimed to preserve their families. The program was built around principles of African-centered
theory. The professor thought the program appeared well designed and heartily urged students to study the article and possibly find ways to imitate the program ideas,
if not the program itself. A few years later, the professor, having continued her education, especially in the area of research, searched for a follow-up on the
program, perhaps reporting outcomes and evidence of effectiveness. No research evidence on the program appears in the scholarly journals. In fact, no evidence that the
program continues to exist at this time has been found. The fact that what appeared to be a promising practice approach did not endure or have the opportunity to
benefit from evaluation is unfortunate.
Note: This week you will work in groups to create a plan for evaluating the rite of passage program described in the assigned article. Each member of the group will be
assigned one step of the research process:
Research problems and questions
Finding and using existing knowledge
Focused research questions and research hypothesis
Research methods
Sampling issues and options
Measurement
Data acquisition
Data collection instruments
Analyzing data
Disseminating research findings
To prepare for this Discussion, read the Poitier et al. study and then revisit what you have learned about your assigned step of the research process. Consider what
would be the most important information to share with your colleagues about that step. Together your group will create a research plan for evaluating the rite of
passage program described in the assigned article.
Post by Day 3 an explanation of your assigned step of the research process and how you would complete that step.
