PASTE TITLE OF THE ASSIGNMENT HERE5
Part I: What Counts as Credible Evidence?
Think about the research project that you developed for CJ525 and your applied research topic of interest. Reflecting on what you learned from this week’s reading and resources, what counts as credible evidence when it comes to research? How can you determine whether a study is credible? What factors should you consider in making your determination? Integrate a discussion of the unit readings to support your responses.
Discuss how you would conduct your proposed study to produce credible results, identifying steps you would specifically take to improve the validity and reliability of your findings. Also consider how your study might be impacted by organizational behavior and day-to-day management in your study setting (i.e., think of the unique organizational behavior characteristics of the proposed study site/setting and how these characteristics could potentially impact data collection or interpretation of study results).
Part II: Your Problem Statement
You spent a lot of time developing your problem statement, reviewing the literature, and drafting your research project plan. Address each of the following:
· Briefly explain the topic you are studying to your classmates.
· Post the current version of your problem statement and answer the following questions:
· How did your literature review impact your problem statement? Did you find that you needed to revise the statement given what you learned from other researchers? Explain.
· Does your problem statement effectively explain the 5 Ws (Who, What, When, Where, and Why) of your proposed research? Explain your reasoning.
