This course focuses on the quantitative and qualitative methods of research necessary for the completion of the Graduate Research Project. Students identify a project for in-depth exploration of a specific topic and problem related to their academic and/or professional interests. Emphasis is on a comprehensive investigation of the instructional-related issues and potential media for new interpretations to the identified problem. Students will study different evaluation models and tools to determine appropriate assessment processes. Upon completion of this course, students will have the first drafts of their proposals for the Graduate Research Project.
