Our Session Long Project for this course is going to give you the opportunity to become familiar with the peer-reviewed research in an area of education/educational leadership (or closely related) that is of interest to you. Toward this end, you will be using the ProQuest database to search the peer-reviewed research for studies that are of interest to you—in conjunction with the specifications for each modular segment of our SLP work. Each SLP segment submission will include a brief overview of the pertinent items of each study—followed by the identification of particular aspects of each study per the focus of the corresponding module—as SPECIFIED via the directives and expectations listed on the SLP page of each module.
STUDY SELECTION In accordance with our focus in this first module, this first segment of our SLP work will entail the selection of three research studies retrieved via the ProQuest database—each of which MUST be from peer-reviewed research journals only. In accordance with our focus in this first module—we want to select one study that centers around a descriptive type of RQ, one study that centers around a correlational type of RQ, and one study that centers around a causal type of RQ. (i.e., 1 study per type of RQ).
