Proposal Content

Please use the “The Research Proposal” document that begins on the next page as a guide for what to include in your proposal.  This document lists each section of a research proposal and identifies key considerations about each section.  Your grade for the written portion of this assignment will be based upon how well you addressed the key points contained in this document.

The maximum overall length of the proposal is 7 pages double spaced with a 12 point font and one inch margins.  A reference list must be included but does not count against your page limit.  The maximum acceptable length of chapter one is 3 pages, and the maximum acceptable length of chapter three is four pages.  Chapter 2 is not required.


To enhance the quality of your proposal and to assist you in achieving an on time completion, the following peer review schedule has been established.  You are expected to submit your proposal for review on schedule and to complete your duties as a reviewer for another author on schedule. Peer review forms are provided in Lesson 1 in WebCT.  The instructor will provide feedback to all students at each scheduled peer review process.
