This assignment comprises two sections: a preliminary literature review and an action item checklist. Preliminary Literature Review: Contains a minimum of 10 scholarly, peer-reviewed research articles. Each article needs to be thoroughly summarized. The summary must describe the relevance of the article, and how the research findings support the action you are proposing in your capstone project. Each article summary needs to include a research design and methods section. Action Item Checklist: The Action Item Checklist should include specific future steps required to complete your capstone project as well as expected completion dates. Prepare this assignment according to the APA format. This assignment uses a grading rubric. Please review the rubric prior to beginning the assignment to become familiar with the expectations for successful completion. PLAGIARISM MUST BE LESS THAN 10%.
