Comprehensive Question 3 (Sports Management)

Order Description
See uploaded files for instructions. Please follow the instructions closely!!!
Question 3: Research

For question 3, you will need to demonstrate the ability to employ research methods used within your specialization. You are expected to critique research methodologies used by scholar-practitioners and compose responses identifying best practices in educational research.

Select five empirical articles from peer-reviewed journals you consider critical to your understanding of your specialization and: Sports Management is the specialization

1. Describe each study, including:

? The research problem, questions, or hypotheses
? The research purpose
? The type of design and elements of the design (e.g., sample, data analysis, operationalization of constructs)
? Threats to validity and if and how addressed
? The findings and implications
? Note if the article makes a compelling case for the meaning and significance of the findings

2. Select one of the five articles above. Using the article, assess how you might conduct the research study differently. Address:

? The research questions
? The research purpose
? Type of design and elements of the design (e.g., sample, the type of data you need to collect and how you will collect it, data analysis)
? The strengths and weaknesses of your envisioned design and methods
? Quantitative: threats to validity and how your design will address them
? Quantitative: the constructs you will measure and what you will do in order to determine how to operationalize them (you do not need to identify specific measures)
? Qualitative: your means of ensuring the quality of your findings
? Justification for why your chosen design and methods are more appropriate for your research question than alternatives you have considered
? Your methods of data analysis
? How the data you collect will enable you to answer your research question and contribute to theory
