Assignment 2:

By the end of the course, you will be submitting your finalized grant application for grading by your professor. Your work doesn’t stop after submission, however. Once you receive a response from your grant application, you have some decisions to make.

In preparation for this Discussion, review this module’s Learning Resources. Consider how you might respond if your grant is approved, or if your application is rejected. With this in mind:

By Day 3 of Week 11

Address the following in a Discussion board post:

  • Explain strategies and best practices you might apply      if you do/do not get funded.
  • How would you respond to funder feedback?
  • Now, imagine that you do get funded. Please explain how      you will respond to the administrative matters (i.e., reporting, managing      staff, project management, etc.).
  • Briefly describe record-keeping strategies for your      project.

Be sure to support your analysis and conclusions with citations and references in APA format from the Learning Resources and your own research.

Now I want you to convey your understanding of a research article: summary of the article (Question 6) and critique of the article (Question 7). You will need to write one paragraph for each question independently. Here are the requirements for your writing:

a) Write no more than 10 sentences, the max word count is 250.b) In-text citation and direct quotes are not needed.c) You cannot directly copy and paste the sentences/phrases (expect professional phrases) from the original article. You must use your own words (so called “paraphrase”) to summarize. Each student’s writing should and must be different even for group members in the same group. Copying and pasting is regarded as plagiarism behavior.d) Font: Times New Roman; Font size: 12; Spacing: Double

6. Write one paragraph to summarize and paraphrase a) the design the authors used for their project, b) identify the independent and dependent variables, c) talk about how the authors carried out their study (the methods), and then d) summarize the results. Make sure to follow above-mentioned requirements.

7. Write one paragraph to address reliability and validity of the study. Specifically, how reliable and valid is the study? Why? Make sure to think of what reliability and validity mean and apply to the study. Merely mentioning it is valid or reliable is not enough – you have to give plausible reasons to support your ideas. Make sure to follow above-mentioned requirements.
