Answer Each Question separately with at least 200 words citation and reference.
1. A critical aspect of dissertation research is not determining what to research or how to research it, but justifying the research plan to others. Your dissertation committee will invest a lot of time and effort supporting you all the way to graduation. So, you need to persuade them that you have thought through the entire research plan and can justify each piece as both necessary and optimal for its particular function. What are the specific quantitative based arguments you have to present to your dissertation committee (chair, methodologist, and content expert) to garner their full approval? How will you craft your argumentation to maximize opportunity for approval of your research plan? Explain.
2. You have examined 10 recent quantitative dissertations from your field and devised systematic approach for identifying quality argumentation in the articles and recording potentially useful information from them. Now, you have one more week available to expand your sources of information and are considering reading some additional articles recently published in the top peer reviewed journal in your field. Will you be able to use your “systematic approach” for evaluating for these journal articles as well, or do you need a different approach? How do you know? Explain the feasibility and benefits of your decision.
