1.  In one to two sentences, what was the social problem that prompted you to search the literature to find out more? Write in complete sentences using a scholarly tone.

2. Now that you have read and summarized some of the recent literature to understand your problem, and given what other researchers are exploring, what meaningful gap have you identified that your study will address? (What have others not yet explored about this problem that you will contribute with your study?)

3.  Based on all of the above information (social problem, literature review, gap), in one sentence, what is your research problem?

4.   Framework (Conceptual or Theoretical)

What theory(ies)   and/or concept(s) support (frame) your study and who are the original   authors? Provide an in-text citation with your response, and the complete APA   reference entry with summary in the Background section.

How do these theories and/or concepts relate to your research problem, purpose, and the nature of your study?

5.  Research Question(s) and Hypotheses (if applicable)

List the question(s) that you plan to use to address the social work practice-focused research problem. Your question(s) must align with your study purpose and include the variables and/or concepts and how they will be examined.

6.   Nature of the Study

What systematic approach/method and research   design do you plan to use to address your research question(s)?

To address the research questions in this study, (choose method) the specific research design will include (Choose approach) Reference entry for the work on which this research   design is based:

For your planned research design, what   type of data will you need and what data   collection tools and sources will provide it?

What data points from these sources do you plan to   use to answer your research question(s)?

Replace this text with your response.

What limitations, challenges, and/or barriers might   you need to address while conducting this study (e.g., access to   participants, access to data, requirements for storing data, separation of roles   or other ethical considerations, instrumentation fees, etc.)?

(Rubric Standard | Feasible   > Can   a systematic method of inquiry be used to address the problem; and does the   approach have the potential to address the problem while considering   potential risks and burdens placed on research participants? )

7. Significance

How   will your study address the meaningful, social work practice-specific issue   that you identified and therefore contribute to social work professional   practice, contributing to positive social change?
