This will become the first page of your assignment. In addition, your assignment header should include your last name, first initial, course code, dash, and assignment number. This should be left justified, with the page number right justified. For example:DoeJXXX0000-1 1Save a copy of your assignments: You may need to re-submit an assignment at your instructor’srequest. Make sure you save your files in accessible location. Academic integrity: All work submitted in each course must be your own original work. This includes all assignments, exams, term papers, and other projects required by your instructor. Knowingly submitting another person’s work as your own, without properly citing the source of the work, is considered plagiarism. This will result in an unsatisfactory grade for the work submitted or for the entire course. It may also result in academic dismissal from the University.SE-8205Dr. BobergDeveloping Curriculum for the MentallyDisabledAssignment #1Analyze the Basics of a Quantitative Research DesignDr. Boberg.

ANALYZE THE BASICS2BattsBSE7004-5Analyze the Basics of a Quantitative Research DesignA quantitative approach to research focuses on investigations of research problems with the objective of proving theories and hypotheses (Creswell, 2014) about an area of research interest. Quantitative analysis involves the use of empirical observations using mathematical expressions of quantitative relationships (Krathwohl, 2009) or variables. In quantitative research, investigators follow a structured approach that involves testing hypotheses (Barnham, 2015) looking at causes and effects to make predictions. Quantitative research uses large, random selection of subjects and operational definitions of variables to obtain quantitative data using precise measurements (Goertzen, 2017), as structured and validated data collection instruments. A quantitative approach to research aims to describe, explain, or predict behaviors reflected in statistical reports with correlations, comparisons of means, and statistically significant information (Hope & Dewar, 2015), which helps justify research conclusions.
