Introduction
(Background / Context)
A well-written, scholarly, and compelling narrative orients the reader to the context of the study. The narrative flows from general to specific, clearly framing and situating the proposed topic within the literature. Major points are well supported by the literature; all key concepts are coherent and clear. The material covered aligns very well with the study’s title.
A clear overview of the study is provided. There is a flow from general to specific. Major points are adequately supported by the literature; key concepts are mostly coherent and clear. The material covered aligns sufficiently with the study’s title.
The study overview is incomplete or unclear. Background information does not sufficiently contextualize the topic. Key elements are inadequately addressed; major points are not supported by the literature; key concepts lack coherence and clarity. The material covered is not aligned with the study’s title.
Introduction
(Significance)
Makes a strong and compelling case for the study’s significance. Offers a very clear and compelling statement of the study’s potential contribution to educational practice.
The study’s significance is moderately compelling. Offers a mostly clear statement of the study’s potential contribution to educational practice.
There is no compelling significance provided for this study. There is no connection with any potential contribution to educational practice.
Research Problem
A clearly articulated problem, aligned with the material in the Introduction, supported by strong evidence is identified and clearly discussed. The problem is clearly related to a critical issue that must be addressed, otherwise negative consequences will occur or continue. The problem statement is clearly articulated.
A clear problem is explained and supported through the material in the Introduction; strong evidence is provided and discussed. The problem is related to a critical issue that must be addressed. The problem statement is articulated.
The description of the problem is incomplete or unclear. Little or no evidence is provided indicating the problem exists. Lacks alignment with the material in the Introduction. The problem is not related to a critical issue that must be addressed. Or, the problem statement is not clearly articulated.
Research Purpose
The purpose of the study is succinctly articulated and is a logical response aligned to the stated problem; a detailed summary of how the study will be conducted is provided.
The purpose of the study is described and mostly aligns with the stated problem; a summary of how the study will be conducted is provided.
The purpose of the study is incomplete or unclear. Key elements are inadequately addressed or missing, and do not align with the stated problem, study details are not supported, and/or lack coherence and clarity.
Research Questions/ Hypotheses
Research question(s) are directly answerable beyond a yes/no response, are specific, testable based on the data to be collected. Questions are directly aligned and support the problem and purpose. The core concepts (qualitative) and/or operational variables (quantitative) are described clearly and appropriately. Quantitative studies include appropriate hypotheses.
Research question(s) are directly answerable beyond yes/no response, fairly specific and testable based on the data to be collected. Questions are aligned and support the problem and purpose. The core concepts (qualitative) and/or operational variables (quantitative) are included. Quantitative studies include appropriate hypotheses.
The research question(s) are incomplete or lack coherence, clarity, not testable, not aligned with the problem and purpose, or only elicit a simple yes/no response. The core concepts and/or operational variables are missing. Quantitative studies may not include appropriate hypotheses.
Research Design
Offers a very clear justification for selection of design. A coherent rationale is presented for the specific research tradition (qualitative) or approach/technique (quantitative). If qualitative, explains how the four elements of trustworthiness will be addressed (credibility, dependability, confirmability, transferability). If quantitative, includes how validity and reliability will be supported.

If quantitative, includes how validity and reliability will be supported.
Offers little or no clear justification for selection of design. Rationale for the specific research tradition (qualitative) or approach/technique (quantitative) is missing. Vague or missing discussion of the four elements of trustworthiness (credibility, dependability, confirmability, transferability), or how validity and reliability will be supported.
Research Methods
Alignment throughout the study is very clear. Strong explanation and justification for how all of the selected methods align with the problem, purpose, and research questions. Strong description regarding how the choice of all methods is consistent with the research design. Target population, sampling method, research sample, data collection methods, data analysis methods, and ethical practices are addressed clearly and comprehensively. Informed consent, anonymity, and confidentiality are all fully and clearly addressed.
Research methods are mostly aligned with the problem, purpose, and research questions. Adequate description regarding how the choice of methods is consistent with the research design. Target population, sampling method, research sample, data collection methods, data analysis methods, and ethical practices are appropriately discussed. Specific discussion of informed consent, anonymity, and confidentiality are addressed.
There is a lack of alignment among the chosen research design, methods and the study’s problem, purpose, and research questions. Discussion is vague or includes inaccuracies. One or more methods are missing. Methodological integrity is lacking throughout.
