Heuristic Approaches To Thinking Assignment

Heuristic approaches to thinking about thinking involve employing rules of thumb to arrive at conclusions. These starting points are the inductive process, but the deduction is also involved in reasoning on a topic.

Dewey called this the “double movement of reflection.” If Dewey is correct, what are the difficulties in isolating either induction or deduction within scientific reasoning? What are the benefits of such isolation? What are some alternatives that we have not yet explored?

Due 08/22/17

A good hypothesis starts with a clear research question. What is the role of abduction in arriving at clear research questions? Are there any inherent dangers in using this approach, strategic guessing, to explore research questions for inquiry? What are the main assumptions behind abductive reasoning?

10 Strategic Points Quantitative Study Extraction #3

Due Date: Aug 28, 2017 Details:

In the prospectus, proposal, and dissertation there are 10 strategic points that need to be clear, simple, correct, and aligned to ensure the research is doable, valuable, and credible. These points, which provide a guide for our vision for the research, are present in almost any research study. The ability to identify these points is one of the first skills required in the creation of a viable doctoral dissertation. In this assignment, you will identify and evaluate 10 strategic points in a published quantitative research study.

General Requirements:

Use the following information to ensure successful completion of the assignment:

  • Review Wallace, Johnson, Mathe, and Paul’s article.
  • Locate and download “Modified 10 Points Template.”
  • This assignment uses a rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion.
  • APA style is required for this assignment.
  • You are required to submit this assignment to Turnitin.

Directions:

Using the “Modified 10 Points Template,” identify each of the 10 strategic points in this quantitative research study.

Complete the “Evaluation” section of the template by addressing the following questions (250-500 words) with regard to the 10 strategic points in the study:

  1. Discuss the key points in the literature review and how the author used this section to identify the gap or problem addressed in the study.
  2. Describe the variables under study and how they are a key component in this quantitative research study. You are not expected to understand the differences between variables at this point, but should be able to identify how they inform the problem, purpose, research questions, and data collection instruments.
  3. Describe the problem and how it informed the research questions under study.
  4. Describe the quantitative design used and why it is appropriate for the identified problem and research questions. Support your response with a peer-reviewed citation from a research source.
  5. Assess the appropriateness of the instruments used to collect data and answer the research questions as well as to address the stated problem.
  6. Discuss how the problem statement informed the development of the purpose statement in this study.

I wish the writer would have picked a more natural topic. Although the work is good, it is obvious that the writer of the material is African American. The fact that I am not African American raises questions.
