Section I: Problem Area, Proposed Strategy to Fix Problem, Research Question

  • 1. Describe your proposed prevention/mitigation strategy
    • Identify theissue, including how serious the issue is and which individuals or locations itmost affects. Remember – this shouldbe connected to your literature review & original topic area/researchquestion. Give a briefsynopsis of the program to address the issue. Here you can discuss an existingprogram that you know of, or invent one. Whichever you choose, give it a nameand location, and discuss your target population. Discuss the specifics of howthe program is supposed to work.
  • 2. Researchquestions and variables
    • Provide aresearch question. It will be the same, or very similar to, the question fromyour literature review. Identify anddefine your independent and dependent variables. Use the exhaustive literaturereview to support why you would choose these variables. (How have thesevariable been used by other authors discussed in your literature review &lit review build? How have they been measured? Be specific.) Include citationsfrom your lit review articles as needed.

Section II: Assessing Whether or Not Your Proposed Strategy Will Work

3. Sampling Design

Identify thepopulation from which you will sample, your desired sample size and thecomposition of your sample, and sampling technique to be used (i.e., describethe specific type of probability or nonprobability sample you will use, and howyou will do it).
