Articulate a concise problem statement around leadership, stress, and burnout. Include appropriate published or relevant primary sources to document the existence of a problem worthy of doctoral-level research. Follow these steps:
Present the general issue grounded in the research literature that leads to the need for the study.
Clearly describe and document the problem prompting the study. Include appropriate published or relevant primary sources to document the existence of a problem worthy of PhD doctoral-level research. Be sure to consider the following: What perspective is represented? For example, is the problem an individual-level problem, an organizational problem, an industry problem, or a social problem?
Consider the theories relevant to predict, explain, and understand the problem.
To identify and articulate a problem, consider the potential negative consequences to the field or stakeholders if the proposed research is never conducted. Then, create a purpose of the study by indicating the intent, goal, and rationale for researching the problem addressed in last week’s assignment. The purpose statement should begin with “The purpose of this (quantitative, qualitative, mixed) study is to…” Use the following list to create the purpose statement:
Sample size (Justified by scholarly sources and a power analysis for quantitative studies)
Data collection method (including instrumentation)
Data analysis method
Software to be used for analysis
A closing statement as to how the study results may inform educational theory
