Research Proposal Assignment

A complete description of the requirements for this assignment has been provided by Dr. Corbett and it includes this summary:

"Write a research proposal that includes a review of the current understanding (theory and research) on the topic, a clearly stated, measurable and testable hypothesis, a description of the experimental or observational methods you would use to test your hypothesis, a description of proposed data analysis / results, and a discussion of how your research will contribute to the subfield it is drawn from."

For this assignment you will need to find a minimum of 12 scholarly sources, which are to be cited using the APA citation style.
