reflective process will help you prepare yourself for this assignment in which you will propose, conduct,and report a case study regarding women police
officers. You will submit the assignment piece-by-piecethroughout the semester so please review the course calendar for the schedule of submissions.
Along withthe Creswell and Poth (2018) chapters you can also draw upon the following paper to help carry out thisassignment successfully:Chenail, R. J.
(2011). Ten steps for conceptualizing and conducting qualitative research studies in apragmatically curious manner. The Qualitative Report, 16(6), 1713-
1730. Retrieved fromhttp://nsuworks.nova.edu/tqr/vol16/iss6/13/In this assignment, you will “write as you go” which means as you make your design
decisions and conductyour study, you will compose your research report. This process is critical in order to not only conduct yourstudy, but also to complete
your write-up of the research.The following are the specific parts of the assignment:1. Design a qualitative research case studya. Develop a research focus
by exploring the videos from the TLC Network’s Police Women of BrowardCounty show. Take some time viewing the large number of videos excerpts from
the different editions ofthis television series. You will see some segments consist of interviews with the female police officers andsome clips contain scenes
of the women working in the field along with their descriiptions and explanationsof their work and themselves. As you view and review these videos, begin to
develop what aspect of beinga female police officeror portraying female police officers interests you the most and how you can explore your interest from
theperspective of a qualitative researcher. A list of the links to the short clips is below:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Police_Women_of_Broward_County

analysis, I suggest youconsult the following articles:Chenail, R. J. (2012). Conducting qualitative data analysis: Reading line-by-line, but analyzing

Grading Criteria: There are seven elements of this assignment on which I will award points for yourwork: (a) Title Page, Abstract, and Keywords (5 points); (b)
Introduction (5 points); (c) Methodology (20points); (d) Results (20 points); (e) Discussion (5 points); (f) References (5 points); and (g) Appendix (5points).
Please see the rubric in Appendix C for more details.
Please construct your abstract in a concise manner that presents readers with an instructive map to the paper. This helps authors to organize their thoughts
and to guide them as they revise the rest of their manuscriipt. In other words, the abstract should not be abstract! To this end, please compose your abstract
in 200 words or less so it presents a logical and accurate reflection of the organizational structure of the paper. One way to do this is to organize your
abstract into a five sentence essay: In sentence one you would present the problem or focus of your study or the gap you are planning to address; in
sentence two you would present your study’s research question or hypothesis; in sentence three you would present your study’s participants and
methodology; in sentence four you would present your findings; and in sentence five you would present the main points from your discussion of the findings.
Please write your methods section in a stepwise fashion such that anyone else could use the same procedures/plan that you used. Therefore, I am
suggesting that you organize this section to show your progression through data gathering and analysis. I am suggesting an outline below and each section
should have an associated heading:
Please identify what type of qualitative inquiry you used. Give your rationale for selecting a qualitative design in general and your qualitative design choice
and discuss how these choices are appropriate to answering the question under study.
Include a full discussion of how your participants were identified and recruited. For studies on materials such as previously existing recordings or records,
discuss how these data sources were selected.
When discussing your study’s participants please consider using composite descriiptions rather than providing multiple identifying characteristics of each
person. Such individuation can jeopardize the confidentiality of your participants and can detract from the composite orientation of your study (i.e., your
research question pertained to a presenting a group perspective and not a listing of each individual’s perspective).
Please explain every step of data generation and collection and provide a rationale for each of your research decisions (please cite the literature that you
used as a guide). Make sure to tell us exactly what constitutes data in your study.
Clearly describe each step of your analysis of the data—include an example for illustration. You may present each step in terms of it from both a conceptual
and operational perspective (please cite the literature that you used as a guide).
Also include a full discussion (including relevant literature) of every step you took to ensure rigor and trustworthiness.
Share how you are going to organize your results and how that is derived from your analysis.
