Week 6

  • The Purpose Statement


    The Purpose Statement

    James is heading into the discussion space to connect with Tiana, Jordan, and other learners who are often there offering support and suggestions. He’s focused on finalizing his assignment for Week 6 and is struggling with how similar some parts of a research study are.

    The introduction is an important component to provide immediate context. The purpose statement is to set the intent of the study; this is different from the research problem (the need for the study), and the research questions. Tiana describes this like a puzzle—it requires that all parts of the research fit together to make one complete unit. The key is to see how that comes together in the assignment this week.

    TO DO LIST:

    • Assignment: Complete the Research Concepts Matrix.
    • Discussion: Discuss the purpose statement, or some other aspect of this week’s content.
    • Quiz: Take the quiz.
    • What You Need to Know: Learn about the purpose statement.
  • Discussion Overview

     

    Each discussion in this course has a couple of questions that may ask you to apply your readings, use new skills, identify additional outside sources, reflect on how content applies to you, or give you an opportunity to talk about what interests you most. You may choose one to respond to each week or you could post your own content related to the concept for the week.
