MBA 5652Unit ILiterature ReviewInstructionsWithin this course you will submit parts of a research paper in each unit that will come together in Unit VII as the complete project. Clickhereto review the Course Project Guidance document, which outlines all of the work you will submit for the course and provides a template for the final paper. Reviewing the document will provide insight and mental preparation for the scope of the course since the assignments will build upon one another. It also introduces the scenario you will utilize for every assignment in this course. Clickhereto review the Sun Coast Remediation Data Files document. This document will be the source of data for your project, however, you will not begin working with the data until Unit IV. Note: The template provided is for the Unit VII Research Paper; you will submit parts of this paper in each unit. See the templates in each unit assignment.For the Unit I assignment, you will use what you learned about research methodologies, primary and secondary sources, and reviewing literature to develop a literature review. This literature review will become part of the final course project due in Unit VII. Please clickhereto access and utilize a template for this assignment.Review articles in the CSU Online Library databases and other credible resources to locate six peer-reviewed, scholarly articles that relate to the Sun Coast businessproblems identified in the Course Project Guidance document. The articles you use should help inform your knowledge about the issues you are trying to solve for Sun Coast. The articles should also be quantitative research articles from primary and secondary sources. Try including words likecorrelation, regression, t test,andANOVAin your keyword search criteria.The article discussion should include the qualifications of the authors, purpose of the studies, research methodologies and designs used, results from the studies, and explanations of how the articles relate to Sun Coast’s problem. Ensure that you also describe how you believe the research made a positive organizational impact.The title and reference pages do not count toward the page requirement for this assignment. This assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length, follow APA-style formatting and guidelines, and use references and citations as necessary.Refer to the Course Project Guidance document for insight. For assistance in creating your literature review, reach out to the Writing CenterUnit IIScholarly ActivityInstructionsFor this assignment, you will define the research objectives and develop the research questions and hypothesesto set the stage for the Sun Coast Remediation research project.You will utilize thistemplateto complete the Unit II assignment.Be sure to include the following sections in your submission, and remember to use APA-formatted section headings and subheadings.§ Introduction§ Research problems§ Research objectives: Refer to the Introduction and Statement of Problems sections provided in the Unit II Assignment Template to make explicit statements as to the objectives of this study. For example, “One objective of this research study is to determine the direction (either positive or negative) and the strength of relationships between ABC Company’s various consumer promotions and sales revenue. This objective is intended to determine which promotions may be more effective and strategically important.” Research objectives should be discussed for each problem identified.§ Research questions and hypotheses: Provide research questions and null and alternative hypotheses that align with the research objectives and problems. For example:o RQ1: What is the relationship between Promotion 1 and sales revenue?§ Ho1(null hypothesis): There is no statistically significant correlation between Promotion 1 (independent variable) and sales revenue (dependent variable).§ Ha1(alternative hypothesis): There is a statistically significant correlation between Promotion 1 and sales revenue.o RQ2: What is the relationship between Promotion 2 and sales revenue?§ Ho2: There is no statistically significant correlation between Promotion 2 and sales revenue.§ Ha1: There is a statistically significant correlation between Promotion 2 and sales revenue.o RQ3: Are there differences in return on investment (ROI) between the various promotions?§ Ho3: There are no statistically significant differences in ROI between Promotion 1 and Promotion 2.§ Ha3: There are statistically significant differences in ROI between Promotion 1 and Promotion 2.The title and reference pages do not count toward the page requirement for this assignment. This assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length, follow APA-style formatting and guidelines, and use references and citations as necessary.Unit III Scholarly ActivityWeight:10% of course gradeGrading RubricInstructionsResearch DesignResearch design refers to the specific type of study that you will conduct. Research design is normally consistent with one’s philosophical worldview and the methodological approach the researcher chooses. In this case, you are using a quantitative methodology. As we have discussed in this course, quantitative research designscan beexperimental and non-experimental. You will be using a non-experimental design that can include descriptive statistics, correlational or causal-comparative research methods.Research methods refer to specific procedures selected based on the chosen design. This is where you will provide detail on how you collected and analyzed your data. For quantitative methodologies, research methods can be quite detailed and require that attention be paid to recruitment, sampling, sampling frame, sample size, surveys, pilot tests, observations, data collection, data analysis, statistical procedures, data interpretation, coding, validity, reliability, generalizability, reporting, etc.For this assignment, you will develop the research design for the Sun Coast project, utilizing thistemplateto complete your assignment.Your Unit III research design submission should include the below elements.§ Research Methodology: Describe and justify the choice of research methodology and why it was most suitableto solvethe problems. Be sure to compare and contrast this choice with the design that was not selected.§ Research Design: Explain whether the research design is exploratory, causal, or descriptive. Provide the rationale for the choice.§ Research Methods: Review the research questions and hypotheses you developed in Unit II, and then decide on the most appropriate research methods to test your hypotheses. They might include a combination of experimentation, descriptive statistics, correlation, and casual-comparative methods. Be sure to specify which method will be used to test which research question and hypotheses, and explain why that method was most appropriate.§ Data Collection Methods: Specify how the data were most likelycollected to test the hypotheses. Data collection methods include, but are not limited to, survey, observation, and records analysis. Be sure to specify which data collection method was used to collect the data needed for each research question and hypothesis. Please note that one data collection method could capture the data for several research questions and hypotheses.§ Sampling Design: Briefly describe the type of sampling design that was most likely used for the data that were collected. Choices include, but are not limited to, random sample, convenience sample, etc. Explain your rationale for your sampling design selection(s).§ Data Analysis Procedures: Specify which statistical procedures will be used to test each of your hypotheses from among correlation, regression,ttest, and ANOVA. Explain why each procedure was the most appropriate choice.The title and reference pages do not count toward the page requirement for this assignment.
