The main purpose of the Advanced Research Design I course is to facilitate student¿s
integration of theory, research design, and measurement issues with knowledge of
statistical procedures needed to plan, accomplish, and evaluate qualitative and
quantitative research projects in speech, language and hearing sciences. Students will
develop their ability to locate, review, and critically evaluate research studies. The
course will cover the proper format for research proposals and reports, measurement
issues, and sampling. In addition, the student is introduced to quantitative and
qualitative approaches to research. The student will develop critical analysis abilities
using the criteria of validity and reliability as explicated in experimental design
principles. Specifically, the course will focus on (1) Identifying and formulating
research questions, (2) Completing a literature search and literature review, (3) non-experiment (qualitative) research design (case studies, survey research), (3)
experimental research and levels of evidence, (4) research participants and sampling,
(5) data analysis: describing different types of data, (6) data analysis: inferential
statistics, (7) research outcomes.
