Side note from instructor:

  1. Your response should cover between 12 – 15 pages only.
  2. This research project requires you to tie together everything you have studied in this semester. This may include core project management skills, writing skills, APA formatting, meeting deadlines, etc.
  3. Ensure all responses you provide (including numbers, tasks and other facts) are supported by information from the journal or provide appropriate assumptions where necessary. This journal including all other sources should be correctly referenced.
  4. Use effective in-text citation to help the reader know exactly where you are picking your facts from. APA requires the use of page numbers primarily for direct quotes. However, just for this sake of this assignment, since I need to know exactly where you are picking the facts from, please use page numbers as often as you need to. If I cannot connect your rationale with the pages, I may not give the maximum points for that section.
  5. You have been put in teams so you can bounce ideas off each other – no one person knows it all. This is a good opportunity to access your respective strengths and weaknesses and work together as a team.
