Learning Goal: I’m working on a research & summaries multi-part question and need guidance to help me learn.
Decision-making models are critical for making informed and consistent decisions. In this discussion, you will use what you have learned about decision-making models to solve the organizational problem below.
Scenario
Imagine that you are an organizational consultant for the SNHU Pet Supply Company. You have been asked to recommend who should lead a new initiative to expand the company’s online presence. After several discussions and interviews, the leadership team has shortlisted two candidates. Each candidate brings a different set of skills and expertise to the table, and each also poses a few challenges.
The first candidate, Myra, is a 15-year veteran of the organization who has worked her way up from an intern to a very capable product manager. She has extensive knowledge of the company’s products and services and embodies the company’s culture and vision in her work. Myra is not well-versed in e-commerce and the technologies that will be needed to implement and launch the company’s online initiative. However, she is a fast learner, and the management position doesn’t require too much in-depth knowledge of technologies.
The second candidate, Michael, was hired six months ago and shows great promise as a leader and manager. He has an MBA from a reputable university and worked for a technology startup for three years before joining the company. He has no experience in pet supplies or related industries, but knows how to launch an online company from the ground up.
In your initial post, address the following:
Compare and contrast two different decision-making models addressed in your course resources, explaining how each would be used to approach the hiring decision.
Recommend which of the two decision-making models would be the best suited to help make the hiring decision, and why.

Your work should be submitted in the following order:
Title Page from Milestone Three
Milestone One
Milestone Two
Milestone Three
Reference Page from Milestone Three
The final project for this course is the creation of a credibility analysis of a research publication. The project is divided into three milestones, which will besubmitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules
The final product will be submitted in week Nine.In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:● Analyze research designs used in the social sciences for how they produce valid and credible research● Select research publications relevant to specific topics following appropriate standards and guidelines in the social sciences ● Assess the appropriateness of the claims made in published studies relevant to specific topics in the social sciences● Interpret evidence in peer-reviewed research that support personal claims regarding a specific social sciences topicPromptFor this assessment, you will analyze and review a series of research publications for credibility, how the experiments have been designed, and how the authors’ results sections inform or do not inform their conclusions. You will choose a topic area which has three preselected research articles associated with it to perform your analysis; later in the assessment, you will be asked to locate an additional article that relates to this topic area. Following your analysis of all of the articles, you will reflect on them holistically and make claims about how they contribute to the understanding of the topic, and what future research into the topic area could explore.Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Overview: For this part of the assessment, you will summarize the important information in the preselected studies that you have chosen in order to guide your analysis later in the assessment. This will include how the research was designed, as well as the results and conclusions that were reached.
A. Describe the research design of each of the preselected studies that you have chosen. Be sure to include the specific methodology as well as the hypothesis, the variables and details on the selection of participants.
B. Describe the results of each of the studies that you chose and how the results of the studies support or do not support the research hypothesis.
C. Describe the conclusions that the authors in each of the chosen studies reached based on their results.
II. Research Analysis: For this part of the assessment, you will begin your analysis of the studies that you have selected using the information that you have previously collected. Your analysis will focus on the research design of the studies, and how the conclusions are or are not supported by the results of the studies. Following your analysis of the preselected studies, you will research and select an additional study which pertains to the topic area.
A. Compare the research methodologies used in your chosen studies and explain why these methodologies were used over other methodologies. In other words, in your comparison you could include why methodologies are informed by the hypothesis created by the author of the study. Be sure to support your response with examples and support from the chosen studies.
B. Explain why the research designs of your chosen studies ensure that the study is or is not valid, reliable, and credible. Be sure to support your response with examples and support from the chosen studies.
C. Explain how the results of your chosen studies appropriately support the conclusions that were reached. If the results do not support the conclusions reached, briefly describe the more appropriate conclusions given the results presented. In other words, you could consider the results section and how the authors used that information to reach their conclusions, even if their claims are inaccurate.
D. Select an additional research article that aligns with the appropriate standards and guidelines used in the social sciences which would help inform future research into the topic area of the chosen studies. In other words, based on what the chosen studies have demonstrated about the topic area, what present research might inform future research in this area?
E. Explain how the article you chose follows the appropriate standards and guidelines of the field. Some questions to consider: Is the article peer reviewed? Is the article relevant to the topic? Is the article still currently relevant?
F. Explain how the research article you located would help inform future research into the topic area of your chosen studies. Be sure to support your response with examples and support from the chosen studies.
III. Reflection: For this part of the assessment, you will analyze the studies for how they contribute to their topic area. Be sure to provide examples and support from the studies presented in your research analysis and incorporate your personal claims and thoughts into your responses.
A. Describe how the evidence in the chosen studies contributes to the collective understanding of the topic.
B. Explain any new conclusions that you could reach about the topic area based on the evidence provided in your chosen studies. In other words, inyour interpretation of the evidence provided in the chosen studies, what conclusions can you reach that go beyond the research?
C. Predict what future research in the topic area of the chosen studies could explore.
Milestones:
Milestone One: Reading & SummarizingIn Module Two, you will choose a set of preselected studies. Using these studies, you will summarize the important information in order to guide your analysis later in the course. This will include an overview of the methods used as well as the results and conclusions presented by the authors. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone One Rubric.
Milestone Two: AnalyzingIn Module Four, you will begin your analysis of the previously selected studies using the information you presented in Milestone One. Your analysis will focus on a critique of the research design of the studies as well as the relationship between the design, the results generated from that design, and the conclusions drawn from those results. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone Two Rubric.
Milestone Three: Expanding Upon the TopicIn Module Six, you will research and select an additional study which pertains to the topic area you selected in the earlier milestone assignments. You will also evaluate the three studies you selected for their contribution to their topic area. Finally, you will integrate the information presented in the published studies and the information learned in this class to draw your own conclusions about the topic area using appropriate evidence to support your claims. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone Three Rubric.

develop a hypothesis about smiling at others and then develop a corresponding research design.

Overview: For this short paper, you will first develop a hypothesis about smiling at others and then develop a corresponding research design. Once you have established your hypothesis and research design, you will then collect data by smiling at 10 people. Please make sure to adhere to this requirement — DO NOT approach or interact with any of the people that you smile at, as this would constitute human subjects research and require COCE Institutional Review Board (IRB) approval. Finally, you will write up your study and conclusions drawn from the research. Please see the following detailed instructions:
Begin by doing a quick literature search around smiling or some sort of smiling behavior. This paper requires at least one peer-reviewed article cited in the introduction.
Next, develop a hypothesis statement. Think about what you have read in your literature search and what you experience in the world around you. What might you want to know about smiling? Make sure to use the “If . . . then . . . ” format.
Then, develop your methodology—what exactly are you going to do to test your hypothesis? Rigorous science starts with and sticks to a plan, so you should think through various challenges and how you might address them if they arise. If you start collecting data and then determine your methodology needs to change, you should discard all data collected to date and begin fresh with the new methodology.
Once you have the hypothesis and methods, you can go in one of two directions. Typically an experiment is carried out over a period of months or even years and the paper is written at the end. However, this is a week-long assignment and you might want to sit down and write the introduction and methods while everything is fresh in your mind.
In whatever order you decide to do them, the remaining two tasks are:
Collect the data. Implement your methodology and see how it goes. Remember, if you are both the person smiling and the person recording the data, you should have some discreet way of recording the information as you go. You do not want people seeing you measuring them or that will change their behavior. You also do not want to count on remembering all the details at the end of the day. Be sure to record some basic observations about who the participant was, as well as what their response was. Again, as stated earlier, DO NOT approach or interact with any of the people that you smile at.
Write the report. Using the standard APA format (see Chapter 2 of the APA manual), write up the experiment. There is an exemplar available for you to review in the Assignment Guidelines and Rubric folder. This is meant to help you. However, you should understand that it is the work of a fellow student. That means that this should be used more for ideas than as an example of the absolute gold standard of classwork.
Be sure your submission includes the following critical elements:
 Introduction: Title pages and abstract (required to be 250 words or less). Provides a research explanation that is appropriate for use based on the evidence in social science research, within APA word limits
● Introduction: Peer-reviewed resources—Include at least one peer-reviewed article for support.
● Introduction: Hypothesis—End with your hypothesis.
● Method: Development/description—Describe what you did. This should be detailed enough that you could hand the paper to a stranger and they could
replicate your study exactly.
● Method: Data collection and analysis—Describe the data collection and analysis procedures in detail.
● Method: Participants—Describe your participants. Descriptions must be an estimation only (such as estimating age). DO NOT approach people asking for
any information.
● Discussion: Supports/rejects—Write up what you found. Include a table or chart illustrating all of the participants’ responses. State if the data supports
or rejects your hypothesis.
● Discussion: Larger conclusion—What larger conclusions could you draw from this data? Are the results generalizable? What are the next steps if
someone wanted to continue this research? (Note that this section is not present in the current exemplar but is still expected for this assignment.)
● Discussion: Limitations—What are the limitations of the study that your reader needs to be aware of?
● References: Another section you are hopefully comfortable with by now. Your references should be in APA style format.
Guidelines for Submission: Your paper must be submitted as Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, running head, title page, and at least three sources cited in APA format. This submission should be approximately 3–5 pages (not counting title or reference page).
