The purpose of this task is for you to demonstrate your ability to develop a proposal for a research project that is appropriate to your particular professional context (Please use the context of a teacher in an Australian school). It should have all the elements of a research proposal and be one that is feasible, meaningful and that could actually be achieved.

Your research proposal should outline:

  1. Research area (the context in which your research question has emerged)
  2. Research problem or issue (problem statement or topic; what the study is about)
  3. Research question (the overarching research question you are interested in). You may include more than one question OR sub-questions if appropriate.
  4. Significance of the study (what contributions are made to knowledge and practice)
  5. Literature review (a summary and critical analysis of previous research and how it relates to this study). At least eight peer-review references (journal articles, books, book chapters) are required. APA in-text citation and referencing style is expected.
  6. Research plan/design and research methods (outline of the research paradigm/research perspective; summary of the proposed research methods to answer your research questions)
  7. Data collection procedure and data analysis (the nature and sources of the data to be collected; what data will be collected, how and where the data will be collected, and how the data collected will be analysed)
