What is the goal of this source? • Reflect: Once you've summarized and assessed a source, you need to ask how it fits into your research. Was this source helpful to you? How does it help you shape your argument? How can you use this source in your research project?
3.1.Evaluate own knowledge, performance and understanding against relevant standards. Once I have analysed the demands and expectations of my job role, the next step is to consider what I can already do and which areas I may further need to develop. This learning outcome looks at how I might evaluate my own performance and how I might use feedback to inform me. It is important to think abut what I can do already and which areas I need to develop further. To do this I can ask for feedback from advisers or assessors.
This paper will discuss the difficulties in translating research into practice. This paper will discuss the possible barriers that might be encountered in attempting to institute change, based on the evidence-based study. This paper will identify more than two appropriate strategies to overcome barriers to change. This paper will explain how to apply findings to guide the implementation of improvements to the procedure. A1.
To both understand research and conduct new research is it vital that each person involved understands the terminology associated with research and research techniques. * How will knowing these terms be an asset to you when evaluating and analyzing research studies or data? The primary method for doing research is to examine the evidence, study available information, and to analyze the facts that are being presented. The ability to analyze and make sense of data and information from multiple sources is an important
Theory should be integrated to the research process. According to McEwen and Wills (2010), it is important to use theory as a framework to provide perspective and guidance to a research study. Fitzpatrick (1998) pointed out that theoretical frameworks provide direction regarding selection of the research design, identify approaches to measurement and methods of data analysis, and specify criteria for acceptability of findings as valid. The steps of Theory-Testing Research as follows: First, the researcher chooses a theory of interest and selects a specific propositional statement from the theory (rather than the entire theory) to be tested. Next, the researcher develops a hypothesis or hypotheses that must have specific measurable variables that reflect the propositional statement.
Closed ended questions limit the user’s ability to provide detail in their answer as these are usually multiple choices, true or false, or function on a rating system. As an analyst working to develop a better system for Riordan, it is important to ask open ended questions as they “are usually used to probe for information when you cannot anticipate all possible responses or when you do not know the precise question to ask.” (University of Phoenix,

Explain your answer by using examples. There are many reasons that information cannot be reliable and lack credibility. The first of these reasons is lake of supporting evidence. When conducting research for an essay or for a new business proposition the researcher must have evidence that supports their writing from sources that can back up their proposed ideas.
Reflect on what was learned from the research. Include the following: * Summarize your research and what you learned. * Discuss any limitations of the research. * Reiterate the importance of studying this subject and comment on implications for future research. * Discuss any limitations of the research and implications for future research.
