I’m working on a social science discussion question and need an explanation to help me learn.

Applied Research Hypothesis
Write a brief summary of each study, explaining how the researchers examined the problem you are interested in studying and their key findings. Based on what you learned from the methods used by the authors of each study, develop a draft research hypothesis, identifying the independent and dependent variables for your proposed research.
Be sure to cite your sources in the body of your paper and list them on your reference page, consistent with APA guidelines. Remember, applied research is not common knowledge, so it is important to cite to all of your sources of information.
