COMMENTS/SUGGESTIONS FOR IMPROVEMENT:
SCORING RUBRIC: METHODOLOGY (40 points)
The methodology paper focuses on your research question and discusses:
Important variables
Investigative procedures
Statistical methods
Instrumentation
This section is a critical conceptual roadmap on investigating your research question and/or
testing hypotheses. The methodology you choose should be appropriate to the research area
investigated and to the constraints of lack of time, funding, and ancillary personnel. This is your
place to display what you have learned in your academic program to date.
