The Assignment Proposal – 5%
The research paper is an assignment consisting of four different papers that you will submit over the course of the term. The four papers build on one another as they are submitted. The first assignment is a research paper proposal. Students should research the literature for the topic they select and prepare a paper that is two to three without the cover page, abstract or reference pages (APA format) on their findings. The paper should propose a fictional company then incorporate their findings from their research and justify a business case for the use of the technology. The paper should include some references (at least five) that support the points you make in the paper.
