Before starting the Signature Assignment, be sure you have sourced at least 15 current (within the past five years) empirical, theoretical, or conceptual articles. In the Signature Assignment, you will present a coherent review of each article and synthesize a collective discussion of the sources under coherent research theme headings.
If you retain the same research focus for your research prospectus, this assignment may serve as an initial draft of one section of the literature review in your dissertation research proposal. Remember from Week 4 that you first need to review the source for the categories noted in your literature review matrix/table. Then, complete the review of each source as you situate the source within the context of the additional sources grouped within your discussion.
For this assignment, your final submission should ensure the following criteria are met:
Length: 7 pages of synthesized literature review with 1 matrix/table as an appendix to the literature review
References: A full reference list with at least 15 sources in APA style
