The Question, Theory, and Survey Instrument Selection | Assignment Help

Week 8 2nd Capstone Assignment

In this component of the Capstone Integrative Proposal Project, you will present your program evaluation question, the theory that aligns with the question, and a survey instrument that addresses the variables in the question.

THE QUESTION, THEORY, AND SURVEY INSTRUMENT SELECTION

Preparation

In this assignment, you will write a narrowly focused program evaluation question that is focused on your topic, has measurable variables, and addresses diversity, equity, or inclusion issues. Note: You select a Program Evaluation for an organization that service homelessness

Research / Program Evaluation Question

As a guide refer to the following example of a process for narrowing a research problem and writing a research question.

  • Social Problem: Homelessness.
  • General Question: How can homelessness be stopped?
  • Research Question: In adults experiencing homelessness and substance abuse is the use of the harm reduction approach or the abstinence approach more effective in stabilization of both housing and substance abuse problems?

Theory

Once a research question is established, select one human service theory which was presented during the MS Program to apply to your proposal:

  • Behavioral theory.
  • Change theory.
  • Cognitive theory.
  • Critical race theory.
  • Developmental theory.
  • Feminist theory.
  • Functionalist theory.
  • Gender theory.
  • Identity formation theory.
  • Self-efficacy theory.
  • Sense of community theory.
  • Systems theory.
  • Transformational theory.
  • Queer theory.

Survey Instrument(s)

The next step is to select one published survey instrument(s). Attached from Week 6 Discussion

  • Review the option and select a survey you believe would be appropriate for your project. You can modify survey questions for your proposal. (See attached article PsycTESTS)

Instructions

Include the following components in your assignment.

Introduction

  • Provide a short introduction to the paper.

Program Evaluation Question

  • Write one program evaluation question that identifies the population, the problem of focus, and relates to a diversity, equity, or inclusion issue. You select a Program Evaluation for an organization that service homelessness

Theory

  • Provide an overview of the human service theory selected that can be appropriately applied to the program objective, including an explanation of how at least two constructs from the theory relate to the program objective.

Survey Instrument

  • Discuss the value of survey research.
  • Present a published survey instrument and evaluate how the survey questions address the variables in the proposed program evaluation question or could be modified to address them.

Conclusion

Additional Requirements

  • References: Include a minimum of four peer-reviewed journal articles published within the last five years.
  • Length of paper: 3 pages.
  • Communication: Communicate in a manner that is scholarly, professional, and respectful of the diversity, dignity, and integrity of others, consistent with expectations for members of the human services profession.
