Context:
This assessment is prescribed to advance literature searching, critical analysis, research
question development, and research planning and project management skills.
This assessment involves developing a research question, conducting a thorough literature
review, defining a gap in the literature, expressing a research question, describing the
methodology and methods that will be used to answer the research question, and
developing a GANTT chart to guide use of time in Capstone B.
It assesses the key understanding necessary for conceptualising and developing a research
proposal, which will prepare you for the use of research methods as a public health
practitioner.
