Progress Check 2 Research Investigation

    SCS 200 Research Investigation Progress Check 2 Guidelines and Rubric

    Overview: Throughout Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, you have been guided through continuing your work on Project One (a research investigation), which you will continue to work on in Theme: Tailoring the Message to an Audience and formally submit to your instructor at the end of Week 5. This assignment provides you with an important opportunity to get valuable instructor feedback on the progress you are making and to ensure you are on the right track for your later submission.

    Prompt: Throughout Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, you have had opportunities to fine-tune your selected social sciences issue and begin exploring academic sources that can support your continued research on your issue. As you complete this work throughout Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, you should continue to build from the previous work you completed and submitted in Research Investigation Progress Check 1. Specifically, in this assignment, you will submit the Project One elements listed below for review by your instructor.

    In Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, learning block 4-2 (page 1), you completed the following work, building from your work in Theme: Exploring Social Science Issues:

    I. Introduction A. Describe the issue in the social sciences that you have selected to investigate.

    Why is this issue significant?

    In Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, learning block 4-2 (page 3), you completed the following work:

    I. Introduction B. Describe at least three social science resources that you could use to investigate

    the issue you selected. Your sources must be relevant to your issue and must be of an academic nature appropriate for the issue. In your description, consider questions such as these: What are the similarities and differences in the content of your sources? What makes them appropriate and relevant for investigating your issue? What was your thought process when you were searching for sources? How did you make choices?

     

     

    In Theme: Exploring Social Science Issues, learning block 4-3 (page 2), you completed the following work:

    II. Body A. Identify the social science principles that apply to your issue. In other words,

    which principles of social science apply to the issue you selected? B. Explain how the principles you identified apply to your issue. In other words, how

    are the social science principles you identified relevant to your issue?

    In Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, learning block 4-3 (page 3), you completed the following work:

    III. Conclusion A. Based on your investigation, develop a research question related to the issue you

    selected. In other words, what would you like to know more about? B. Explain how a social scientist would go about investigating the research question

    you developed. In other words, what would the next steps be if a social scientist were to continue researching your question?

    In Theme: Performing the Research Investigation, learning block 3-3 (page 3), learning block 4-1 (page 3), and learning block 4-2 (page 3), you began working on the following section of the prompt:

    IV. Provide a reference list that includes all of the social science resources you used to investigate your issue and question. Ensure that your list is formatted according to current APA guidelines (or another format with instructor permission).

    Please note that the numbering included above directly aligns with the numbering of these elements as they are presented in the Project One Guidelines and Rubric document.
