Final Major requirement:

Research Outline Guidelines and Instructions

Write a research outline related to your Academic Program


that uses Correlation as one of the statistical tool for the
treatment of data.

The task can be done individually, with a partner, or by a


group of three members only.

Goal: To conceptualize a research that uses a correlation as


a statistical tool.

The outline must be encoded in a letter sized (8.5” x 11”)


bond paper using Courier New with a font size of 12 (Single Line
Spacing) following the given format.

The outline should contain the following:


- Proposed research title
- Conceptual/Theoretical Framework (operational definition
of the variables)
- Statement of the Problem and Hypotheses
- References

Clarification:
In a research the background is important for it will be the
basis whether or not there are really connection among the
variables, and whether or not it is researchable, but it is no
longer required to be placed in the output to be submitted due to
restriction in time. However, it is still recommended that you
think about the background to make your variables coalesce.
Remember that given the nature of correlational studies, it
is a quantitative study. Hence, rules and guidelines in writing a
quantitative researches must be observed.

The paper must have a 1” margin, all sides, and must be at


most 3 pages long (not including the space occupied by the
references).

The reference and in-text citation must follow the APA


format sixth edition.

The output will be graded based on:

Proper variables for a correlational study


Novelty of variables
Proper writing of the required parts of the research:
Research Title
Conceptual/Theoretical Framework
Statement of the Problem and Hypotheses
References
Proper format

Follow the template as given:
