R‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍eview the weekly overview and reflect on the topic of research questions. Your research question describes the issue you want to learn about, but you rarely can learn about that issue by asking others that same question. A research question is broad but specific and should clearly address the topic and the population being studied. It should also be practical and demonstrate the action you are doing. If your question can only provide a yes/no answer, is too general, or is not feasible, it isn’t a good research question. An example of a poorly written research question might be: What is the role of the nurses in the operating room? Research questions are not interview questions. Research Question Example: How do families with school-age children prepare them to be ready for school? Interview Question Example: How do you get your children ready for school? That might be all you have to say to learn about how people prepare their kids for school, but you can add probes like: Tell me more about… or you mentioned… or can you give me an example? You never want to ask a yes/no question in an interview because the response will not provide any reliable data to analyze. Write a 250- to 300-word response to the following: • What is the purpose of research questions? • How are research questions different from interview questions? • How are research questions aligned with the purpose statement? Include your own experience as well as 2 citations ‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍from peer-reviewed academic journals, industry publications, books, and/or other sources that align with or contradict your comments. Cite your sources according to APA guidelines. If you found information that contradicts your experience, explain why you agree or disagree with the information.
