NCU Template Applied Degree CP 2013

Main Task: Writing a Purpose Statement

Based on the Problem Statement you wrote in the Week 4 Activity and the feedback from the Instructor, draft a Purpose Statement. The documents in the NCU Dissertation Center will be helpful in the actual development of this draft. The length and format of this document should conform to the specifications in the NCU Template Applied Degree CP 2013 document.

Note: At this point in the course, the decision for either a quantitative or a qualitative study has not been made; therefore, that component of the Purpose Statement is not expected at this point.
