Based on what you learned from the Doctoral Degree Coach tasks and from the examples in the Prospectus Form, identify the appropriate research design

For this assignment, you will practice drafting a purpose statement. Just as with your work in the previous module, you are not bound to the purpose statement you write for this assignment. Instead, use this as an opportunity to continue building your scholarly writing skills. The resulting ideas on paper will help you refine your thoughts and ideas as you progress along your journey so that you are prepared when the time comes to write your actual purpose statement.
To prepare for this Assignment:
Review the problem statement you completed in Module 4.
Revisit the Prospectus Form for your program of study and review the instructions in the Purpose section and example in the Appendix.
Write a purpose statement that aligns with the problem statement.
Submit your assignment.
What you need to do…By when…
Based on the problem statement you wrote in Module 4, in a 1- to 2-page paper, write a purpose statement. Be sure to address the following:
Explain the purpose of the study.
Based on what you learned from the Doctoral Degree Coach tasks and from the examples in the Prospectus Form, identify the appropriate research design (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods) for the research problem.
Ensure alignment in the language between the problem and purpose statements.

Provide a rationalization for its viability for this section of the research project.

The first step in writing a research proposal is identifying a viable research question in order to fill a gap in literature and/or solve a problem. After considering what most interests you in your field of study (academic program) and conducting a preliminary examination of current research in library databases, you will develop a research question and provide a rationalization for its viability for this section of the research project. The research question will serve as the foundation of your research proposal project.
InstructionsChoose a topic on a newer or emerging topic in your field of study.
Using this FINER protocol, create a research question. Be sure it encompasses each of the following elements:
FINER Protocol for Research Questions_Deliverable 2.docx
Feasible
Interesting
Novel
Ethical
Relevant
Defend the viability and the FINER protocol of the question in a two-to-three-page paper (not including the title and reference pages).

What are your recommendations for dealing with the problem of alcoholism?

We once attended a meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous with a friend who had been “dry” for a short time. As we drove through the countryside to the small town where the group met, the friend kept commenting on the beauty of the scenery. He was enchanted by what we thought was a fairly common view on a warm spring evening. But his years as an alcoholic had been a living hell, and in the course of rediscovering what life can be like when you are free of addiction, he was finding beauty in the commonplace. “I really think,” he told us, “that if someone tried to force me to take a drink I would kill them.” The thought of ever returning to alcohol terrified him.
Discuss the adverse effects on the quality of life discussed in this chapter as it relates to alcohol. Based on your assessment, what are your recommendations for dealing with the problem of alcoholism? Read to of your other classmates recommendations and comment on how your ideas compare.
