Tutankhamun’s Golden Death Mask

Tutankhamun’s Golden Death Mask

The research essay is an original essay where the student poses a research question, gathers materials, focuses the research, shapes the argument, and frames the material in relation to the larger themes developed in the course. For this essay, students will pursue their own research interests that build on the issues discussed in the course, as detailed in their annotated bibliography. You should cite sources from a variety of types of texts (books, journals, websites, etc.) with a full works cited page, including any class readings that you use. Your essay should have a clear thesis statement in the introduction, and a clearly flowing argument with sufficient supporting examples, quotes, discussion and analysis.

• What are the results?

} Introduction (10%)

Is there a clear purpose and rationale for the study? Are there clear set of objectives and research questions?

Background

This informs the reader of the problem or the situation, and the context you are interested in.

Rationale for the study

• What is the research issue?

• Why is it an issue?

• Why is it an issue now?

• What could this research shed light on? – (benefits/ implications of the study)

Research Aims

Objectives, Research Questions and Hypothesis.

Research objectives

· One of the most important sections of the research proposal and the dissertation as you need to develop them properly in line with the research topic and conduct the research to achieve these

· The aspects that should be considered when developing objectives are:

o Development of 3 – 4 objectives

o Objectives should follow a logical sequence

o Start with ‘To’

o Use of appropriate level specific words such as ‘assess’, ‘evaluate’, ‘investigate’ etc.

o Final objective could be to make recommendations, or provide a solution to a problem or to make improvement/s

o To detail out the objectives, research questions can be included

} Literature Review and Conceptual Framework (20%)

• Is the range of literature sources (covering past research findings, books, online sources etc.) used suitable and adequate? (at least 20 – 30 sources to underpin the study)

• Has a critical review of the literature been made? (this could produce a conceptual framework where relevant)

• In doing so, students need to capture debates in the study area and also bring in their own inputs/ views/ insights as well.

• Make a ‘link’ between existing literature and your own research

} Research Design and Methodology (20%)

· Has the research design and methodology discussed? Is the approach and philosophy appropriate?

· This section gives a detailed rationale/ justification of how you achieve your research objectives. You are expected to:

1) Explain your selection of research paradigm/ philosophy, approach, strategy and methods (qualitative and quantitative techniques planned to be used)

2) Outline the methods of sampling (including population, sample size), data capture (including data gathering methods and instruments/ tools), analysis and interpretation to be used (analysis method/s and tool/s), and give reasons for the choice.

3) Highlight any limitations in the chosen methodology.

4) Discuss the type of ethical issues relevant for the research.

} Results – 30%

Has the data/ results been accurately presented?
Ensure to present only results (no discussions)
The following requirements should be fulfilled;
Different techniques such as tables, diagrams and charts should be used
If interviews have been used you should provide transcripts of the actual interviews in the appendices and refer to them when presenting data/ results
If qualitative research is used, you need to state important direct quotes within this section
If a questionnaire has been used, it should be included in the appendices.

Analysis and Discussion

Has the student analysed and interpreted their findings?
The following factors should be considered;
Should avoid including mere descriptions. Instead the results should be analysed in a meaningful way in line with research objectives.
Subheadings/ bullet points can be used to discuss each objective separately
The interpretation of the results should be backed up with own insights/ input, relevant literature (to see whether you have agreed with past findings or not) and it should also be aligned with the research objectives
Literature should be pulled from literature review section & not new literature
Making reasoned judgments on the findings

Conclusions/Recommendation – 10%

Are conclusions reasoned?
The following points should be addressed under the conclusion;
Provide a summary of the findings of data analysis
New facts should not be included in the conclusion
Should reflect the extent to which the objectives are achieved
The main lessons learnt from the research needs to be summarised
Candidates can also mention whether the findings add or complement the existing research.
Has the student given proper and valid recommendations?
The following points should be considered when making recommendations;
Keep recommendations short and effective
The recommendations need to be valid for managerial level
Recommendations can be SMART and they can be presented with an action plan (Gantt chart)
Are the limitations and future research been discussed?

Presentation – 10%

Has the student used a professional style to present the work?
Following should be considered;
Accurate referencing in Harvard style
Good range of references
Lack of plagiarism
Accurate format and design (including headings, subheadings, paragraphs and numbering)
