Assignments for Spring 2015


Research Proposal

Research Proposal Assignment Guidelines [PDF]

Here are some sample proposals written by URBP 298 students that will give you some ideas on how to construct your own: Billing example [PDF], McDonald example [PDF], and Bowyer example [PDF].


IRB Application

See the course syllabus for more information.

IRB example from Professor Kos [PDF], which uses the current template.

Other examples include:  Salazar example [PDF], Nixon example [PDF], Mathur example [PDF], and Agrawal example [PDF]. Please note that these IRB proposals do not use the current IRB formatting and should only be consulted for ideas regarding language to describe certain research procedures (e.g. the Agrawal example gives an excellent structure for interview guides). Please review the Graduate Studies website for the most up-to-date information on formatting.


Literature Review Assignment

Literature Review Assignment Guidelines [PDF]

Here are well-developed literature reviews written by prior 298 students that may give you ideas of how to construct your own literature review: Carvalho example [PDF] and Anonymous example [PDF]
