Instructions for Case Study Assignment
There are many methods available for conducting research, one of which is a case study. The purpose of this assignment is for you to learn how to conduct and complete a case study. Proper current APA formatting throughout the document is a substantial part of the content of this assignment. You will use what you learn in this assignment in a future course assignment.
Answer the following four questions using current APA format throughout (including your title page, appropriate vocabulary and sentence structure, writing in third person, in-text citations, page numbers, levels of headings throughout the document, an introductory statement, a conclusion statement, and consistency between your in-text citations and references). Use your course textbooks, including your Introduction to Research textbook and the Publication Manual, and at least two additional scholarly references. This assignment must have a title page, plus two to four pages of appropriate content, and a reference page. Give the answers to these questions in your own words and with your own explanation. Cite your sources in-text, and list your various sources as references on your references page.
This assignment is requiring level one headings based on each of the questions. Create your own brief phrase for a properly formatted level one heading based on each question so as to be clear about which item you are answering. Your headings must not be simply copied/pasted from the questions. An acceptable heading must clearly capture the essence of each question. Headings are typically brief statements. See various sections of your Publication Manual for details about the requirements in this assignment.
