Report Issue
I need about 150 words for each of the assignment.

A. Identify a dissertation in the ProQuest Dissertations and Theses database in the GCU Library. Read the “Statement of the Problem” section of Chapter 1 in the dissertation. What was the problem statement for this dissertation? How did the author support the problem using the gap/need identified from prior research? Was the problem adequately supported? Why or why not? be sure to provide the full APP-style reference note for the dissertation you read.

B. How does the gap/need that emerges from the extant literature during the literature review process influence the development of the problem statement for a dissertation? Explain.
