Extended Abstract Assignment

| October 19, 2015

From following article (A. Beiseigel, J. M. and Nickols-Richardson, S. M. (2002), Anthropometrics, bone mineral density, and dietary intake in a group of young adult females. Family and Consumer Sciences Research Journal, 30, 404–423. doi: 10.1177/1077727X02030003004)
you will write an extended abstract proposal that includes 1 through 5 stated below by referencing the grading rubric.
Following up on this research, propose a research study to be conducted in addressing one of many research ideas that can be pursued next. You will need to search existing recent studies so that the proposed study will add to the existing body of knowledge. The scope of the proposed study should be feasible for a master’s student. Include the followings in your research proposal that you prepare in the format of extended abstract:
1. Objective of the study (research questions/statement of the problem, rational, directional alternative/research hypotheses to be tested).
2. The study design and justification for selecting it (type of study and why this design was used. Discuss the advantage of the design).
3. Methodological issues to be considered (external and internal validity, concerns about ethnical issues, sampling techniques).
4. Data to be collected (including data collection and instruments to be used, list the main dependent and independent variables and their measurement types, and any possible confounding factors or covariates).
5. Types of descriptive statistical analyses (choose ANOVA please) to be performed to describe the sample characteristics, followed by at least one type of statistical analysis to be performed to test your hypotheses. The model to test your hypotheses should have one dependent variable and two or more independent variables. The statistical method you propose for this assignment is expected from the range covered in this course so far. However, it is your choice if you decide to propose something else.
In addition to the article provided, include a minimum of four peer-reviewed research articles available online for CSUN researchers. Your proposal in the format of an extended abstract should be three pages and double-spaced, prepared using the APA 6th edition format and style. The reference list should begin immediately after your answer on the same page.
