This is to remind students under Res/CE411 (Research Study 1) and Res/CE5125 (Research Study 2) for the time of consultation which is necessary in developing or finalizing your research proposals. Please avail this day/hr to discuss your topics and get immediate inputs to improve/revise your proposals. Early discussion will allow you to write your proposals on time and be ready for any oral presentation at the end of the semester.
For those who did not able to attend the class on 30 June 2018 (Saturday), please be reminded that late submission of Assignment #1 will get point deduction. NO SUBMISSION MEANS INCOMPLETE REQUIREMENT IN THE CLASS.
Further readings in the main textbook of Pale-Calmorin and Calmorin ((2007) include Chapters 2 and 3. These chapters of the book will provide you inputs in doing your Assignment #2: ABSTRACT PROPOSAL of your selected topic. A maximum of 250 words, single space, short/Letter size bond paper. Similar to an abstract of a thesis, the Abstract Proposal will contain the following information:
a. Specific topic as the Title ( this is not necessarily your title of the proposal and this will change)
b. General background of the topic based on the review of related literature
c. General Objective to undertake the given topic
d. A brief discussion of the methodology and research design (study area, respondents, models, and techniques in data collection and analysis)
e.The reason (rationale) why you want to undertake this topic - contribution to the body of knowledge?
f. Keywords (a maximum of 5 words) that will directly describe your topic (example: multimedia, smart classroom, student performance, K-12 assessment)
g. List of References (APA format) - Journal articles are preferred
Assignment #1 is the initial document in developing your research proposal. Therefore, you have to start conducting the review of related literature. Please utilize the websites (Sci-Hub, Gale, NDLTD) in searching relevant materials.
NOTE: Assessing GALE website requires username and password. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you interested to browse the website. RSU paid an annual fee to avail the online services.
The following are websites that can provide free access to journal articles, reports, and other online resources for the conduct of your research. The review of literature is an initial stage to conceptualize your research paper proposal or improve your on-going researches in relation to assess the extent of the studies done in the past that have something to do with your research. Please click the following links or the images and you will be directed to the actual sites.
On the other hand, the link below requires a "password"which will be share to you in the class or you can text or email for you to get the said password. This is a university account which means that the university paid the services offered by the site.
These websites will also be posted in the respective subjects links as shown in the upper top bar for easy access and navigation. If you experience difficulty assessing or retrieving the online materials, please get the attention of your teacher for immediate attention of the matter.
Details of accessing of the above websites (username and password) will be further discussed in the class.
Read your handouts and there will be a QUIZ next meeting. Also read the reference materials, AMBISYON NATIN and DEPED ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVITIES. You can also visit the link below for additional information on the various national and international events/activities being celebrated every year/month that have relation to environmental awareness.
NOTE: Assignment #1 is due on 28 June 2018. Late submission will get point deduction.
Please continue reading your handouts, including CHAPTER 2 of our main reference textbook by Paler-Calmorin and Calmorin (2007).
In preparation for next week meeting, please prepare your ideas or topics that you are interested to pursue in writing up your individual "Proposal Abstract." Details of the Proposal Abstract will be further discussed during the class. In order to prepare on this, you are encourage to read other theses and online reading materials (journal articles) to get more ideas and guidance in choosing your topic, consequently writing-up your Proposal Abstract.
As part of the discussion next week is your personal experience in accessing the three websites (GALE, SCI-HUB and NDLTD) given to you as main source of online secondary sources of information. Thus, you are expected to browse those websites and find out their benefits.
It is expected that you have already talked to your adviser towards finalization of the proposal or topic/title selected. Every week, you have to submit the progress of your Thesis Proposal especially for those groups that changed their proposals. To reiterate, changing your previous proposals means that the group is to work "double time" in writing-up Chapters 1-3. For those who did not change their proposals, continue writing-up the Methodology chapter/section and if it is necessary, revise or improve the INTRODUCTION AND REVIEW OF LITERATURE and get the approval from your adviser.
Before the group the finalize the proposal, an approval is necessary from the teacher and confirmation from the adviser that he/she has already read or approves the proposal. At least five (5) reference materials will be cited and hard copies will be included in the submission.
Moreover, as it was discussed in the class, you need to come-up with one or two back-up abstract proposals in case that your "first choice" proposal will be disapproved by the Panel of Examiners.
NOTE: No confirmation from the adviser and prior approval from the teacher will not allow the groups to have their ORAL/TITLE DEFENSE ON 13 JULY 2018 (Friday).
The list of the research proposals submitted in Research Study 1 (second semester 2017-18), including those submitted in the previous years will be posted here for your reference. For those groups who want to change their proposals and group members are encourage to discuss your plans as soon as possible.
Moreover, the list of completed researches (theses) submitted to the College will also be available. Every group is required to secure a copy of the "guidebook" by either downloading it from the website or purchase it at a very reasonable cost. This will be checked as part of the requirement for the subject.
By the end of June, it is expected that all groups have already finalized their proposals (containing the main chapters, Chapters 1 to 3) and with the approval from the adviser. The oral presentation of the proposals will be scheduled very soon for you to conduct your research on time and submit the thesis in October 2018.
The handouts 1 and 2 are ready for download in the RES411 CE STUDY1 bar link provided at upper side of the screen. The hardcopy is available during the class for you to photocopy but every student is encourage to visit the website on a weekly basis to get updates.
In addition, Assignment #1 is also available and due date on 26 June 2018. Details of the assignment will be discussed during the class.
The handouts 1 to 3 are available for download in the bar link of GRAD EM200 RES at the upper side of the website. Assignment #1 is also posted and due on 30 June 2018. If you have questions, you can post it in the subject link or raise them during the class. Hardcopies of these materials will be available during the class but it is the responsibility of the students to have them photocopy.
Please take note of the deadline of submission, because late submission means point deduction from the total rating earned.
