Synopsis

This is the third unit in the formal requirements for completion of the research thesis/project. Students will be required to recruit participants and collect data in accordance with their initial research design and proposed analysis. Students will continue to work closely with their research supervisor to collect data and to begin to analyse preliminary results. Satisfactory progress in relation to the research is a prerequisite for enrolment into the final unit in this research sequence.

Objectives

On completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate their ability to manage data collection and analysis;
  2. Work collaboratively with a research supervisor to achieve research milestones;
  3. Write to an appropriate academic standard by incorporating existing research findings and supervisor feedback;
  4. Have experienced and responded appropriately to the realities of research project issues (e.g. ethical and practical issues surrounding confidentiality, data management, etc).

Assessment

Students will be required to submit Progress Report 3 (hurdle requirement) (100%).
