In this assignment, you will create a research question to add to your ePortfolio.
In your final course in the Criminal Justice program, you will create a research question that you will then investigate further. To assist you in this task, we will provide a list of current research topics covered in each course and ask you to submit for instructor feedback at least one research question based on a topic covered in that course. Using the topics listed below (or others covered in this course), create one to three research questions and submit them to your instructor.
This research question assignment is graded based on completion, and instructor feedback should help you strengthen your questions for future use. After you have submitted these questions to your instructor, upload the questions (and the list of potential topics below, if you wish) to your ePortfolio.
For more information on creating research questions, refer to this research resource from the Shapiro Library. This page also has a helpful FAQ section on research question creation and expectations that you may want to explore further.
Note: If this is the first time you are submitting a research question to support your work in the final course, you should create a folder within your ePortfolio with the title Research Questions, as you will be adding questions to this folder throughout the program. Follow these ePortfolio folder instructions on creating a folder within your ePortfolio.
