Below is a brief description of what is required for assessment 3: (3000 word)
Having identified and argued the importance of your topic of interest (Assessment task 1) and reviewed the literature on that topic (Assessment task 2), you must now apply the methodological knowledge and frameworks you have gained during this unit (i.e., the prescribed literature from weeks 5 to 12) to propose a research design that will allow you to systematically, empirically, and rigorously investigate and answer your selected research question. Those studying OHSE must write an OHSE related research project.
The research design proposal should include:
§ A brief (re-)statement the topic and research question, and possible refinements as a result of insights gained after having completed Assessment tasks 1 and 2 (e.g., the prescribed literature, feedback from your lecturer);
§ A comprehensive description of your proposed research design, covering all relevant elements – such as type of design, data sources, data collection method, measurement instruments, research setting, sampling method, negotiating access and maximizing response, and time frame – using the methodological terminology and frameworks from the prescribed literature;
§ Beyond merely describing what your proposed research design looks like, it is equally important that you clearly justify your choices. That is, you need to use the methodological considerations and frameworks from the prescribed literature to argue why the research choices you propose will enable you to examine and answer your research question in a way that is methodologically superior to other research design choices;
§ This also means that you will need to critically evaluate both the strengths and weaknesses of your design and how your research design choices will impact the validity of the conclusions you will be able to derive from your research;
§ The proposal should describe research that you can realistically carry out, so you need to consider not only methodological requirements but also practical and ethical constraints associated with your proposed design;
§ Finally, provide some preliminary ideas about how you would go about analysing your data.
The comprehensiveness of research design description (20%)
The description is comprehensive and complete, covering most elements, and highlighting nuances and complexities. Indicates that student has a clear and in-depth idea of how s/he will proceed to conduct the empirical study.
Substantiation of research design choices (20%)
There is a very good substantiation of why specific research design choices were made, and it's complete and comprehensive. An assessment of the research design's strengths, weaknesses, and validity implications is present in most places, and they're correctly applied in most places. Indicates a very good understanding of how research design choices affect one's ability to answer research questions.
The thoughtfulness of practical and ethical considerations (20%)
There is a very good discussion of practical and ethical considerations, and it's complete and comprehensive. Issues are correctly identified in most places. Indicates very careful thought about the practical feasibility of the proposed research design.
Systematic application of concepts and frameworks from the unit's literature (20%) Frequently draws on the concepts/frameworks from the prescribed literature. Uses them consistently and in a systematic manner. Indicates a very good understanding of the prescribed literature. Makes some use of recommended literature.
Structure, clarity of expression, visualisation, and referencing (20%)
The text is logically structured. There are only minor errors with sentence formulation, grammar, spelling and/or punctuation. Makes use of visualisations to clarify or organise the content in the text in meaningful ways. Referencing is complete, consistent and follows established guidelines.

(your discussion is centered around on this framework.
This summary paragraph will be main main discussion point of this research design, summary will be in a systematic way.)
Write this framework like this for every important point:
According to writer Mark Saunders (Book) research design or research purpose means this....
In this pint my opinion this...Other researcher said this...
(Again for another point) according to writer Saunders research sampling is this.... My writing
(opinion) is this... Other researcher said this...
(Again next point) according to writer Research Strategies means this..... About this topic my choice is this...Other researcher said that.....
(Again for next point) according to writer marks Research Ethics means this... My research ethics is this.... Other researcher describe ethics means this....
