Methodology Paper (Signature Assignment)

Methodology Paper (Signature Assignment) – 300 points
Purpose: To assess the synthesis of key course concepts and the ability to design and implement a statistical
analysis plan (Objectives 1 – 5).
Due date: Sunday of Week 7
Submitted: LiveText
This assignment isthe final assignment in the course. Throughout the course,students should be thinking about
their clinical scholarly projects and how key concepts are generally or specifically related to the project.
Because planning an analysis isfar more difficult than running a statistical test on a computer, this course
emphasizesstatistical thinking,rather than computationalrecipes.
Thisfinal assignment providesstudents with an opportunity to demonstrate in an authentic context what they
have learned in the course. Although limited in scope, this final assignment is a draft of Chapter 3 of the Clinical
Scholarly Project (CSP). The focus of the assignment is on developing a clear vision of (a) what should
be done in a project to analyze and interpret data appropriately and (b) the likely results of the proposed project.
Thus, this assignment should assiststudentsin completing their final clinical scholarly projectsin an effective
and timely manner and prepare them to complete the methodology chapter of their CSP. This assignment builds
on assignmentsfrom previous courses, particularly DNPU-706 which helped studentsidentify appropriate
outcomes, develop a data collection plan, and obtain formal approval from the CSP Chair on the project plan.
This assignment must be submitted in LiveText by Sunday of Week 7. Students must use the assignment
template provided in LiveText and attach a Microsoft Word document (DOC or DOCX). The assignment must
also be uploaded in Blackboard to the Week 7 Academic Integrity folder for analysis by Turnitin.
Students are expected to use the feedback they got from their instructors on previous assignments asthey
prepare for this assignment. Students are encouraged to work with classmates, instructors, and mentors/chairs
when preparing the assignment. However, each student’sfinal paper should be unique to the student and reflect
his/her background, experience, expertise, integrity, and specific CSP.
The student should prepare an appropriately formatted (APA) manuscript (See APA Handbook Chapter 2),
organized in the format described in the Clinical Scholarly Project Handbook (pp. 20-22). Studentsshould
make sure that the audience will understand what change in practice or phenomenon s/he will be evaluating,
why it is important, why s/he is predicting the results/findings s/he is predicting, and how the results/findings
will impact nursing practice.
From the CSP Handbook:
ChapterIII should include a detailed description of the proposed research methods and procedures, in
essence, the design of the study.It should be sufficiently explanatory and detailed to enable other
researchers to read the proposal, and by referring to it alone, conduct the same research that the
student proposes to undertake. This is known as “replication.” As such, Chapter III must not be an
abstract description, but a complete step-by-step account of what will be done, in what order, how, and
by whom. Whetherthe study will be quantitative, qualitative, or a combination should be clearly stated.
The following sections must be included in the methods chapter. Any additional sections needed to
Updated 8/1/2017
appropriately describe issues associated with the research operations(i.e., transcriptsfrom focus group
interviews) can be included as an appendix (p. 20).
Remember that the Methodology Paper, which will form the basis of Chapter 3, should build logically on the
Background and Significance (Chapter 1) as well as the exhaustive literature review (Chapter 2). Please
carefully review the CSP Handbook for detailed descriptions of each of the following required sections as
well as the APA Handbook for formatting and content tips. Your paper should be structured as follows:
I. Title Page: Your title should be an empirical title (as discussed at immersion) (APA 2.01 and 2.02).
II. Abstract: Your abstract should be a “brief, comprehensive summary” of the paper (APA 2.04 –
empiricalstudy).
III. Overview: A brief introduction to the chapter (APA 2.05). Briefly introduce the problem and
summarize the significance.
a. Purpose Statement: Clear and concise explanation of the purpose of your clinical scholarly
project. Remember that your purpose should use empirical language and address measurable
outcomes. Your research question(s) should be clearly and empirically stated (APA 2.05).
IV. Data
a. Population: This should describe the population addressed in your research question (APA
2.06).
b. Sample: Describe the subset (sample) of the population of interest, the sample size, and the
extent to which results can be generalized (APA 2.06). Also include subject recruitment if
appropriate. A mock APA table of descriptive statistics must be included and referenced in the
narrative (APA 5.10).
c. Instrumentation: Describe the process or rationale used to select or design the data collection
process if appropriate (APA 2.06)
d. Data Collection: Describe the process of data collection in detail (APA 2.06)
e. Variables: Explain, in detail, each of the variables you will be using, what they measure, and
how (APA 2.06).
f. Project design: Describe the design of the project(pre/post, treatment/control, quasi experimental, etc.). If appropriate, describe the intervention used (APA 2.06).
V. Results
a. Analysis: Describe the analysis of the data, the methods used, issues of missing or abnormal
data, and the results (APA 2.07). A mock APA table of results must be included and referenced
in the narrative (APA 5.10).
VI. Discussion
a. Conclusions: Clearly explain your findings and make an explicit statement of support or
nonsupport for your research question(s). If you had no significant findings, provide
explanations. Clearly explain the statistical and clinical significance of your study (APA 2.08).
b. Limitations: Explain the limitations of the study, address alternate explanations, sources of bias,
and external validity of your findings (APA 2.08).
c. Significance and Implications: Present a “reasoned and justifiable commentary on the
importance of your findings” (APA 2.08).
VII. References
VIII. Tables and Figures
Student work will be graded with a rubric and individual feedback from instructors will be provided.
The Methodology Paper will be graded using the rubric below.
