Students will submit a mini research proposal at the end of the term. Students are to select a topic and research question of their own choice. The topic and research question must be
kinesiology related. They will complete a provided template which outlines their proposed unique study. It is recommended that students begin with reviewing 10 peer-reviewed articles
to gain some background research in your area. This will allow students to ensure that their proposed research question has not already been answered and identify the research gap their
proposed study will be addressing. Students should select two peer-reviewed articles that directly relate to their chosen research question and topic.
These sources will also provide background information about the topic. Sources are to be cited in proper APA format.
Students will apply learned concepts and knowledge throughout the term to design an appropriate study that addresses the proposed question they wish to answer. Remember: the
research question should dictate how the rest of the study is designed.
Formatting: the assignment should be formatted as per APA citation style. The length limitation is 2 pages maximum at size 11 font. Students are expected to be clear and concise with their descriptions. All descriptions of concepts should be explained in the student’s own words.
