EDU 671 Fundamentals of Educational Research Week 4 Complete (Assignment, Discussions)

 

EDU 671 Week 4 Discussion 1

 

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

 

Data Analysis Practice

 

Mills (2014) shares in Chapter 6, “the interpretation of qualitative data is the researcher’s attempt to find meaning, to answer the ‘So what?’ in terms of the implications of the study’s findings” (p. 133). He adds that data analysis and interpretation is “. . . a process of digesting the contents of your qualitative data and finding related threads in it” (133).

 

Analyze the middle school scenario, Flipped Math Class. Explain your process for coding and categorizing the qualitative data. What patterns and/or themes did you discover? Answer the “So What” for your team of teacher-researchers based on your findings. What steps does your team need to take to address these issues before implementing the innovation of a flipped classroom?

 

Pages 138-139 in Action Research: A Guide for the Teacher Researcher provide an example of coding from a transcript.

 

Guided Response: Consider the analysis and interpretation of at least two of your classmates. Did you find similar themes or patterns? Examine their interpretation of the data. Did they discover something you didn’t? Is there something you think is lacking in their interpretation? Provide specific feedback by asking a probing question and/or providing your interpretation of their analysis and next steps. *It is expected you follow-up by the last day of the week to provide a secondary response to any comments or questions your instructor may have provided. This is part of the grading criteria as a demonstration of critical thinking.

 

EDU 671 Week 4 Discussion 2

 

Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.

 

Your Intended Intervention/Innovation

 

Consider first, the written assignment for this week. Following the same outline, but with less detail at this point, share your intervention plan with the class including: 1. Your research question(s) o What do you want to answer in the study? 2. A brief overview of your intervention and how students will benefit o This reinforces your identified problem. 3. How you propose to implement it o How much time will it take and in what sequence? 4. The ethical considerations you will address o “None” is not an option. There are always ethical considerations, some smaller/larger than others. 5. How you plan on collecting data o Both quantitative and qualitative? Guided Response: Read and respond to at least two classmates and provide specific, constructive feedback that may help guide them in their process and present their formal assignment with clarity, accuracy, and depth. What questions are you left with as you read their plan? What suggestions can you make to perhaps, give a different perspective? *It is expected you follow-up by the last day of the week to provide a secondary response to any comments or questions your instructor may have provided. This is part of the grading criteria as a demonstration of critical thinking.

Intervention/Innovation Method

 

Instructions: For this assignment, you will write a method paper than contains the items listed in the content below.

 

Content The assignment needs to include the following areas of content.

 

• Intervention – Overview (.5 points): In no more than one page, explain your proposed intervention.

 

• Intervention – Literature Review (1 point): In no more than one page, discuss your literature review and how it informs your proposed intervention.

 

• Intervention – Benefits (.5 points): In no more than one page, explain why you think your population will benefit from the intervention. Ensure your explanation draws on the literature you are using to support this choice of intervention.

 

• Intervention Plan (2 points): In one- to two-pages, describe in chronological order how you will implement your intervention and provide a hypothetical yet practical timeframe for these steps.

 

• Ethics – Philosophy (.5 points): In one- to two-paragraphs, explain how this intervention fits within your philosophy of teaching. You may have written a philosophy in EDU623 or another prior course.

 

• Ethics – Social Principles (.5 points): In one- to two-paragraphs, explain how this intervention relates to your social principles as an educator.

 

• Ethics – Harm (1 point): In one- to two-paragraphs, explain how the literature you reviewed leads you to believe what you are doing is an appropriate intervention.

This timeline will be hypothetical and approximate. The Data Collection Procedures section can follow this example: Research Questions Data Collection Tool Why this tool? Justify its use in your study. How does it match with what you are attempting to find and to measure? Timeframe: How and when data will be collected. What are students’ perceived confidence levels with learning new math concepts through digital/virtual learning forums exclusively? One pre- assessment Likert survey Allows students to rate their level of perceived confidence with learning math concepts through digital or virtual learning forums as opposed to a live teacher. Provides multiple question types to gather wider breadth of potential student concerns. Phase 1: Given for up to first three days of study depending upon attendance in the first 15 minutes of class-computer lab.
