Demographic data and test stats need to be APA formatted—look in the Student Success Center for more information.

This course has offered you the foundational materials required for performing Communication Research. This assignment will give you the opportunity to bring all of this knowledge together in an abbreviated research paper.

Directions:

Write a research paper of a total of 1,500-2,600 words that discusses the research you have performed—using 30-40 participants. Include the following:

1. Introduction (100-200 words)

The purpose of the introduction is to familiarize your reader with the context of the research study. Paint a picture – in “broader strokes” – explaining the relevant cultural, historical, societal issues that inform this study. Explain, in short, how these ideas come together as a response to existing research.

2. Rationale for Research Questions (250-500 words)

The purpose of the rationale is to briefly summarize themes from the literature review and explain how these themes justify your research question and hypotheses.

3. Methods (100-200 words)

The purpose of the methods section is to clearly explain data analysis, method, and rationale for test statistics. The survey must contain 30-40 participants. It is important to be systematic, detailed, and clear in the explanation of these processes/methods. This should include an explanation of your analysis for the open-ended question too.

4. Results (300-500 words)

The purpose of the results section is to clearly communicate your findings in the data collection and analysis portion of the project and relate these findings to your research questions and/or hypotheses. This section must include your test statistic (written in APA) and a table (also written in APA). In addition, you must show your thematic codes and exemplars.

5. Discussion (250-500 words)

The purpose of the discussion section is to interpret the results and share insights you have gained about the communication phenomena examined in the study. This should include a discussion of the meaning derived from both the quantitative test statistic and the open-ended analysis.

You should reflect on articles from literature review to discuss your findings.

6. Limitations and Future Research (250-500 words)

No research study can take into consideration every variable influencing the results or shaping the outcomes of the research, but this section provides the opportunity to reiterate the limited scope of the study (“This was accomplished, but due to other variables we were not able to…”) and explain the unique variables that may skew results. In this section, you should explicitly discuss sampling techniques and measuring variables.

The other purpose of this section is to propose future investigations or directions for inquiry/research. Compare and contrast the strengths and weakness of survey style research and explain future opportunities for alternative methods of communication research. You must include discussion of either participant observation, textual analysis (qualitative or quantitative), or interviews/focus groups.

7. Conclusion (100-200 words)

8. References

Part 1: Explanation of the Data Collection Process
The more advanced the technology is the more society uses it and rightfully so. It is a
convenient way to communicate, stay connected with family and friends afar using social media,
and a very quick way to get information on a variety of topics to suit the needs of any individual.
As the use of technology increases, society is less engaged in the world around them. The
purpose of this study is to understand: 1) if increased utilization of technology leads to
technology addiction, 2) increased self-control reflects the decrease in use of technology and 3)
decreased self-control reflects the increased use of technology.
The method utilized to collect the data will include a survey that is easy to understand
and will not a minimal amount of time to complete to keep the survey taker engaged long enough
to complete the survey. This study will include all ages, demographic information to understand
the survey group, arithmetic mean and standard deviation. From a critical viewpoint, the
paradigm or world view strategy is used to provide validity or lack thereof to claims made on the
topic (Chilisa and Kawulich, 2015). Both ordinal and nominal measurement are utilized in the
survey.
Part 2: The Survey
The survey is designed to determine whether or not increased utilization of technology
leads to technology addiction and if adolescents are the most effected by addiction due to the
lack of limitations of usage. Your honesty in providing responses to the questions will provide
data to educate parents and families regarding the topic. The survey will take little effort, about
five minutes to complete, and respondents will remain anonymous and confidential. Your
feedback is important.
