Brainstorm. Brainstorm potential educational research topics that are of interest to you. What is a topic that will motivate you to want to explore it further? Try to focus in as much as possible. For example, if you are interested in education for gifted children, you may want to focus on the advantages/disadvantages of homogeneous grouping of gifted students. Why is it an exciting topic for you?
Research Questions and Hypotheses. What are the similarities and differences between research questions and hypotheses? How should a researcher determine the use of a question or hypothesis? Create a research question that aligns to your chosen topic and then create a corresponding hypothesis. Make sure to identify and explain the similarities and differences in your own question and hypothesis.
Research Topic. Once your research topic has been approved by your instructor, write a three- to five-page paper (excluding title and reference pages) and discuss what aspect(s) of your chosen topic interests you most. Write three research questions or hypotheses that correspond to the topic. You may use the questions/hypotheses you developed in this week’s second discussion if they pertain to the approved topic. Discuss the process by which you selected and formed your research questions and hypotheses and the challenges you experienced in writing them. Make sure you identify how you applied the rules of educational research while developing your research topic. Include your assessment of the principal types of educational research and determine what type of research your topic will align with best. Your paper must be formatted according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center and your approved APA style guide. Make sure to use at least two scholarly sources to support your application of educational research.
