OverviewThis assignment is a draft of the Population and Sampling section of your project. You will use scholarly literature to define and describe the population and identify the sampling design and type of sampling. You will also explain why this sampling approach is fitting.
PreparationBefore beginning the assignment:
Ensure that you have identified the population to be considered in your research concept. This should begin as a general population for which the research problem exists, then a specific population (target population).
Ask why the sampling type and design are the best for addressing the population described.
Watch the media presentation and complete the interactive learning activity on sampling.
InstructionsUse the Concept Paper Project Instructions [DOCX] for complete instructions for this assignment. Refer to the population and sample section. Instructions provided: Population and Sample
Describe the general population, the target population (include a description of the social setting), and study’s sample. Consider this example when describing the population:
the general population (i.e., students with disabilities)
target population (i.e. students with disabilities in one specific district – geographic location)
the study sample (students with disabilities in the district that will participate in the study – actual study sample).
Identify the sampling strategy, provide a sample size appropriate for the study design, include a justification. When describing the sample size provide evidence that the sample size is adequate for the research design. If you used the ‘Finding the Right Test’ tool linked in unit 8, you should have an appropriate statistical test. As a general rule of thumb, consider the following:
Absolute Minimum: 50 cases or participants applicable to studies that use frequencies/descriptive statistics and parametric statistical tests (t-tests, ANOVA, correlation, regression analysis)—additional requirements related to the use of certain statistical analysis procedures may increase that number. Survey research = 10 subjects per survey question.
An a-priori Power Analysis is required to justify the study sample size based on the anticipated effect size and selected design. Include this in addition to using the literature to support your choices.
Use the Concept Paper Project Template [DOCX] to complete this assignment.
You will be graded on the following:
Describe the population from which the sample will be taken that represents a sampling of the general population in a way that respects diversity, including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, physical ability, and gender.
Describe a sample that would come from the population.
Convey purpose, in an appropriate tone and style, incorporating supporting evidence and adhering to organizational, professional, and scholarly writing standards.
Exhibit proficiency in writing and use of APA (7th edition) style.
Additional RequirementsOrganization: Use the Concept Paper Template [DOCX] to complete your assignment. It has been created to reflect the proper structure. Please do not modify the template so that you avoid missing content and losing points.
