Ontological assumption of epistemological paradigm

Part 2 Worksheet Instructions

Part 2 of the paper needs to be 7 pages. This does not include the title page, abstract, and references.
To begin your work on Part 2 of the paper, a worksheet is to help to ensure you stay on track (SEE BELOW). (IF NEEDED)
The paper needs to answer the following questions:
1.    What is the underlying philosophical paradigm of the theory of interaction identified in Part 1?
2.    Why do you think this is the philosophical paradigm underlying this theory?
3.    Link the major assumptions of the theory to the ontological, axiological, and methodological assumptions of the epistemological paradigm.
4.    Identify and describe what research studies have been used to test this theory. In other words, what research studies have been conducted using this theory?
5.    What research methods did these research studies use to test the theory? (The epistemological paradigm that guides the theory should be aligned with the methodological assumption of the epistemological paradigm.)
6.    Based on the research studies identified and described in step 3, discuss the scope of theory and its appropriateness for theory building and validation. How accurate is the theory in explaining the phenomenon?
You have submitted a draft for Part 1 of the final paper, (SEE ATTACHED) which entails describing the theory you have selected (Behavioral Theory).

Again, the goal of this worksheet is to help you gather information and literature and pull together your thoughts. Be detailed.  

WORKSHEET

Name of Theory:  

Behavioral Theory

What is the underlying epistemological paradigm of this theory?  (All theories have an epistemological foundation. We have covered the following epistemological paradigms: logical positivism, post-positivism, realism, postmodernism, interpretivism /social constructivism, critical theory, feminist theory.)

Why do you think this is the epistemological paradigm underlying your theory?  (This is where you will link the ontological, axiological, and methodological assumptions of the epistemological paradigm to the tenets of the theory. You will need to review the tenets of your selected theory and review the assumptions of the epistemological paradigm.)
