In academic research, creating a database that enables the capture of qualitative and or quantitative data, as gathered by primary or secondary data sources, is key to successful analysis of hypotheses.
For this week’s assignment, you must create a database in MySQL for purposes of academic research. You are free to use ideas that may be flowing related to your planned dissertation research or another area of data collection to solve for another problem statement of interest. You will create a technical design specification that will include screenshots of your created MySQL database, your entity-relationship diagram, and a detailed description of what you are solving for. You are permitted to build off of the database created in earlier weeks, or you may start with a new research topic of interest. If you build off of the previously created database, you must add significantly to the previous design to address new analytic issues.
Your database design and document should include the following:
Length: 5-10 pages, not including title page
References: Include a minimum of 3 scholarly resources.
The completed assignment should address all of the assignment requirements, exhibit evidence of concept knowledge, and demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the content presented in the course.
