ORG602- Module 4 SLP (EPISTEMOLOGY AND ONTOLOGY).
In this Module 4 SLP, you will build on your work in Modules 1, 2, and 3 to continue the development of your research proposal. Review the background readings for this module.
In this assignment, you are to write a paper in which you:
Refine your research proposal, discuss your proposed sampling procedure and sample, and discuss epistemological and ontological issues related to your research proposal.
SLP Assignment Expectations
Expand, rework, and refine your research proposal in response to your own further reading and your professor’s feedback.
Building on your work in your Research Methods courses, namely RES600 and RES601, add a brief discussion of the sampling procedure and sample you would use for your study. Discuss some of the basic steps you would take in testing your hypotheses.
As an appendix to your proposal, prepare a response to a hypothetical reviewer who has asked, “Can you explain the epistemological and ontological assumptions guiding your work in your Module 3 SLP where you developed conceptual and operational definitions of your constructs/variables?”
