The aim of this assessment task is to help you identify a research topic that you are interested in and for which you would like to develop a detailed research proposal for the final assessment task in this course. You will need to review relevant research studies on your selected topic to provide an adequate justification for the research. This is not an annotated bibliography; your aim should be to critically review the studies, synthesize the findings and draw on these findings to make a case for the proposed topic. This literature review can be used to help inform Assignment 2. Performing this first assessment task successfully will require you to:
Specify clearly the research problem/topic/issue that you are proposing to investigate;
Review and synthesize relevant, timely and substantive studies; and
Identity a ‘gap’ – an under-researched area – in the literature to provide justification for the research.
The review should focus on relevant and up-to-date research on the topic. Although a fixed format for the assessment task is not prescribed, it is expected that there will be:
* an introduction about the nature of the topic;
* a body where the studies will be reviewed and;
* a conclusion where justification for the ‘gap’ in the topic will be provided.
