I have started a research proposal and need assistance finishing up the paper. I have uploaded the paper which will need editing, plus the additional section required for completion. I am alsoincluding notes from my professor on what has been written so far. I would like to include editing based on my professors notes.
Here are his notes on the uploaded paper:
This is a fine start!
Please see my prior feedback on your research idea. We need to keep this to one IV and one DV. I recommend using level of social support as your IV – this is easily measured by existing well-normed and well-validated scales you can find in the literature. Pick one of those scales for use as your IV.
We cannot create our own questionnaire with several areas of questioning because this won’t be validated.
Your IV of social supports can now be defined as the score on the social supports scale. Your DV, again keeping it simple, can be either a yes/no answer to the question of have you been diagnosed with post partum depression (this is the simplest choice), or a score on an existing measure of depression such as the Beck Depression Scale.
In the Design section, I see that you are considering a two-group option with one group taking a course. This is a bit more complicated to plan and write about, but you can do this if you like. In this case, forget about the IV of social support. Now, the IV will be taking the training course or not. The DV remains the same, your choice of either having been diagnosed with PPD or a score on the depression test.
Omit any reference to questionnaires, as they are not normed or validated. Use only existing scales that have been fully normed and validated, such as the Social Supports scale or the Beck Depression scale, or one simple yes/no question such has have you ever been diagnosed with PPD.
There is a major ethical concern with planning to tell one group not to attend training. We really can’t do it this way. The way to fix this is to do it retrospectively. In this case you would collect participants who have had a child in the past year. Ask them, ‘Did you participate in the classes or not?” Then, for the DV, ask them if they were diagnosed with PPD. That’s all you have to do. Simple!
The last step for the methods section will be to tell the reader how you plan to analyze the data. In my last iteration here, the IV is a dichotomous variable (yes/no attended classes or not), and the DV is also a dichotomous variable (yes/no diagnosed with PPD or not). See if you can look up in your text or online which inferential test you should use with two dichotomous variables.
I will continuously increase your grade as you work on this.

The remaining section that I have not worked on is the results and discussion sections.
