ORDER NOW FOR AN ORIGINAL PAPER ASSIGNMENT : Assignment: Variables-Independent
You’ve heard that students in online courses tend to spend more time studying and preparing for class than traditional campus students. Is this true? If so, why might this be the case? What factors might contribute to this? For your original post, design a research project where you could examine if this relationship does in fact exist and if so, why. Use the following questions as a guide.
What is your research question? (Note: This should NOT be a yes or no question.)
What kind of research design will you use?How will you collect data?
Why is this the best way to collect data?
What are your variables (independent and dependent)?
Describe how you will carry out your research. What kinds of questions will you ask? Or what kind of observations will you undertake?
No need for references, 200-300 word minimum
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
