Fortunately, there are others, most notably Rosenthal (see http://class.csueastbay.edu/commsci/ASHAStudRes.htm), who provided an impetus to our own design and implementation of the research methods course in the department of communicative disorders at East Tennessee State University. Rosenthal described a graduate research course in which students designed and executed a research project within an 11-week quarter. At the completion of the course, the top student projects were selected for publication in a departmental student research journal and submitted to the California State University Student Research Competition.
