Chapter 1: CLINICAL QUESTIONS: This section narrows the focus of the project and specifies the clinical questions to address the problem statement. Based on the clinical questions, it describes the variables or groups and their hypothesized relationship for a quantitative project or the phenomena under investigation for a qualitative project. The clinical questions should be derived from, and are directly aligned with, the problem and purpose statements, methods, and data analyses. The Clinical Questions section of Chapter 1 will be presented again in Chapter 3 to provide clear continuity for the reader and to help frame the data analysis in Chapter 4. (2-3 paragraphs or approximately 1 page) 10.0% Item is not present. Not all components are present. There are large gaps in the components that leave the reader with significant questions.

Chapter 1: ADVANCING SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE: This section specifically describes how the proposed project will advance population health outcomes on the topic. This advancement may be a small step forward in a line of current research. This section summarizes the Theoretical Foundations section from Chapter 2 by identifying the theory or model upon which the project is built. It also describes how the project will advance that theory or model. It also describes how the project will advance that theory or model. (2-3 paragraphs or approximately 1 page) 5.0% Item is not present. Not all components are present. There are large gaps in the components that leave the reader with significant questions.

Chapter 1: SIGNIFICANCE OF THE PROJECT: This section identifies and describes the significance of the project. It also discusses the implications of the potential results based on the project questions and problem statement, hypotheses, or the investigated phenomena. Further, it describes how the project fits within, and will contribute to, the current literature or body of research. Finally, it describes the potential practical applications from the project.
