For this assignment, you will provide a synthesized review of the scholarly literature and address the theoretical foundations or practice orientation for your study. Your supporting evidence should include:Topic.ProblemPrimary orientation.Efforts to address the problem.Synthesis of evidence.Your project questions should illuminate the gap in literature and align with topic, problem, and evidence.
Use your Project Plan Template and guide to complete the following:
TopicDescribe the specific topic to be studied. Provide a brief synthesis of recent literature on the topic and clearly identify the target population, variables, and/or concepts under study. Ensure that the topic is grounded in a problem and aligned with your program of study.Example: The topic for the proposed study is the effect of transformational leadership on organizational citizenship behavior among employees in health care organizations. Describe transformational leadership, organizational citizenship behavior, and employees in health care organizations. Support and cite the support for each of these descriptions.Describe the significance of this topic to your program or field (business, counseling, education, technology, public service leadership, psychology, social work, and so on) and your specialization within your program if applicable.Correctly form the topic.Use appropriate language for key concepts/phenomena addressed by the topic.Clearly specify relationships among the foundations (quantitative method).Identify and define the specific concepts or foundations to be explored (qualitative method).Name the target population.Focus the concepts appropriately.Use scholarly literature to explain what is known and unknown about this topic. Report the actual study findings (not implications or recommendations) from recent (5–7 years from expected date of graduation), peer-reviewed articles, and seminal works to explain the current status of the topic and to show the gap in understanding that you propose to fill.ProblemWrite a brief statement regarding the need for the study that fully describes the problem or need being addressed. The need for the study is often referred to as the project or research problem. Correctly state the problem:Summarize existing literature and key findings.Clearly formulate gaps in the existing literature or problems in practice.Explicitly state, rather than imply, the project or research problem.State the theoretical or conceptual framework with source.In simplified terms, the project or research problem might take this form: “The scholarly literature on _________ indicates that ________ is known and __________ is known, but what is not known is ______________.” Write out the problem statement and theoretical foundation.Quantitative problem statement example: “The proposed study will examine the extent to which (independent variable) influences (dependent variable) among (population) (moderated/mediated by [variable]). X Theory (citation) will serve as the theoretical framework of the proposed study.”Qualitative problem statement example: “The proposed study will seek to ________ (understand, describe, develop, discover) how [concepts/theory foundations] have addressed the ________ (central phenomenon, experience/event, process) for _______ (the target population). The tenets of Y theory (citation) will serve as the conceptual framework of the proposed study.”Example: “This qualitative generic inquiry study will explore how Maslow’s hierarchy of needs’ foundations of physiological and safety needs are associated with the perceptions of post-Covid 19 unemployed job seekers toward job hunting.”Supporting EvidenceExplain how the proposed study will add or contribute to a better understanding of the theoretical foundation of the problem or contribute to a better understanding of practice.Explain the proposed gap supported by scholarly literature or the practical implications of the proposed study.Synthesize a review of the scholarly literature to expose, explain, and analyze previous scholarly efforts to address the project or problem.Project QuestionsList one or more project questions that align with the topic, problem, and supporting evidence within the program.Include a list of terms and definitions that relate to the program, topic, problem, gap, program, and project framework.Describe your target population.Describe the background for your study and how your question relates to the background of the study. Discuss previous studies and demonstrate exactly how your project (answering the question, applying to practice) will advance the scientific knowledge base on this topic. Consider the following guidance:Questions should be appropriate for the knowledge gap and current state of knowledge (supporting evidence).Questions are cast using the variables or phenomena under study. The variables or phenomena in the questions are identical to the variables discussed in the problem and specific theory gap.Questions are explicit in naming the type of relationship or phenomenon under study.When answered, questions will make a contribution to theoretical or practical foundations. The contribution to the academic field and to the theoretical foundation must speak to how the relationship among the variables or to the phenomenon addresses the knowledge gap previously identified.Additional RequirementsWritten communication: Written communication is free of errors that detract from the overall message.Continue to use your Project Plan Template to structure your paper. Refer to the Virtual Residency Campus page for your PhD or Professional Doctorate program’s Project Plan Guide.Resources: 6–10 scholarly references, including seminal works, listed in References section at the end of the paper.APA guidelines: Double-spaced paragraph formatting in the body of the paper. When appropriate, use APA-formatted headings. Resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and format. Refer to Evidence and APA as needed.Font and font size: Times New Roman, 12 points.Grammarly: Before submitting your work through SafeAssign, use the free Grammarly tool to help detect plagiarism and correct errors with grammar, usage, and writing mechanics.SafeAssign: Use the SafeAssign results to revise your work before submitting your assignment for grading.Synchronous Session Confirmation: When submitting your assignment, include this comment in the comments section “I attended and participated in the required synchronous session.”Review the Supporting Evidence and Project Questions scoring guide before submitting to ensure that you have met all criteria.Portfolio Prompt: Consider adding this assignment to your personal ePortfolio. This assignment demonstrates your ability to address the theoretical foundations or practice orientation for your proposed Project Plan. You will want to organize your course assignments to easily support future work on your dissertation or doctoral project and to showcase your knowledge with employers after graduation.
