1-Draft research questions—and hypotheses where appropriate—developed from your problem and purpose statements.
The questions should be sufficiently complex and original so that the findings could contribute to the existing body of knowledge in the field.
Revise your purpose statements drawing on feedback from your facilitator and peers. When you post the draft research questions and hypotheses, you must also include the revised problem and purpose statements so it is possible to clearly see the connection. These research questions must be based on the problem statements and purpose statements you developed in previous weeks.

At least one quantitative research question, with associated null and alternative
Revised Qualitative Problem Statement
Qualitative Purpose Statement
At least one qualitative research question
2-Create a reflective and applied statement describing how the week’s learning has affected your thought processes, development, and professional disposition. This statement should reflect your personal learning process–challenges, moments of discovery, life experiences, and interactions. You may also include questions for the course facilitator regarding material that may still be unclear in your reflection. Ideally, you will use these reflections throughout the course and the program to document your development as a scholar, practitioner, and leader, and to reflect critically on the changes that occur during this process.
