1. What is a research proposal?

A research proposal is a written plan of the research project to be undertaken which
involves problem conceptualization and planning of research design, methods, instruments,
sampling techniques, step-by-step procedures and statistical analysis. It also involves setting
up the parameters, the time and place, and the context of the research subject. (Fonollera,
1993)

2. What are the importance of a research proposal?
To the student:
 A research proposal sets forth both the exact nature of the matter to be
investigated and a detailed account of the methods to be employed (Locke,
Spirduso, & Silverman, 1993)
 It serves as a plan for conducting the actual research
 It is intended to convince others that the student has a worthwhile research project
and that he/she has the competence and the work-plan to complete it (Oman
Medical Journal, 2008)
 It provides for the sequence of activities that have to be undertaken to arrive at the
desired goals
 It is used for finalization of a research plan after presentation and discussion
before the research committee or board (Fonollera, 1993)

To the professional:

 It establishes to the advisor that there is a niche for the student’s chosen area of
study and that the research design is realistic
 A worthwhile research can result from a well-designed research proposal which
can then be used on ensuing researches by others (Singh, 2009)

3. What are the importance of the following:
Chapter 1 – The Problem and its Background

a researcher faces lot of problems that can be effectively resolved with using correct research methodology (Williams.pdf . 2013. (Fonollera. and the purpose of the impending findings (Curriculum Design and Writing Team. 1993)  It describes how the proposed research is related to prior researches in statistics  It justifies the researcher’s proposed methodology (Montana State University) Chapter 3 – Methods of Research  For finding or exploring research questions.). Retrieved November 9. the method to be used.d. from http://arxiv. 2010)  The research problem provides context for the study and reveals what the researcher is trying to answer (Curtis. Research Methodology.  The research problem is important to the research proposal because it probes what relations exist between two or more variables. (n. 1993)  The statement of the problem is the focal point of the research which states what will be studied. 2011)  Research methods help researchers collect samples. 2011) Chapter 2 – Review of Related Literature  Extensive readings on the problem in mind would let the researcher know his/her entry point to the topic  It shows the originality and relevance of the research problem  The review enables the researcher to narrow down the general problem to a specific and well-defined problem (Fonollera.org/pdf/physics/0601009. data and find a solution to a problem (Cornell University Library) Bibliography Cornell University Library.
