Applying Research Findings to Professional Practice

            [One of the more challenging aspects of using the research findings to improve professional practice is making a judgment call about the degree to which the findings transfer into your professional setting. Researchers refer to this as “transferability.”  In this context, the term is defined as the extent to which research findings that are produced in the research site can be meaningfully applied in a different context.  As a consumer of research, you must consider the differences between the context of the research article and the context of your professional practice.  If there is a wide difference, most likely the research results have very little transferability for you.  If there are relevant similarities between the research site and your context, the research results will have a higher level of transferability.

            For the purposes of the next section of this assignment, imagine that you work for a mid-sized community college and you have been assigned by the president as the student retention coordinator for the entire institution. Your mandate is to improve student retention at the college by five percent during your first year in this role.]

Similarities and Differences between Your Context and the Research Site: Article One

            [Based on the comparison you completed in the previous section, discuss the degree of transferability of the research results of Gammon’s and Morgan-Samuel’s (2004) study in your new role working to improve student retention.  Would you take any specific action to improve student retention based on the findings of this research report?  If so, what would you do?]

Similarities and Differences between Your Context and the Research Site: Article Two

            [For the purposes of the next section of this assignment, imagine that you are a newly appointed principal of a small high school.  The high school currently has a poor record for student retention and a large portion of the student body does not graduate. After reading Fostering an Adolescent-Centered Community within an Interdisciplinary Team by Kiefer and Ellerbrock, identify the primary similarities and differences between your imagined context as described above and the research site where the study took place.]

Assessing the Transferability of Research Results

            [Based on the comparison you completed in the previous section, discuss the degree of transferability of the research results of Kiefer’s and Ellerbrock’s (2012) study in your new role working to improve student retention.  Would you take any specific action to improve student retention based on the findings of this research report?  If so, what would they be?]

Conclusion

            [Briefly describe the key concepts you have learned about using research results to improve your professional practice after doing this assignment.  Be sure to complete the reference section below in APA format for reference lists.]
