Theoretical Framework Assignment Instructions
Research is typically explained, or supported, by a theoretical framework. The question to ask when writing the theoretical framework is “how does the theory inform the problem?” The information in the theoretical framework must present the theory and theorist, coordinating concepts, and rationale for utilizing the theory for the research with a clear connection drawn between the theory and the proposed research.
For this assignment, you will use the information from the textbook reading to write a 1-2-page theoretical framework for your research. Choose one theory to explain your research.
· The first page should be a correctly APA formatted title page that includes the title of your study written as required in the textbook and the applied research report. Do not title this assignment “Theoretical Framework Assignment.”
· The second and third pages should be a well-written theoretical framework for your research. This paper must have level one and two headings. Include at least five peer-reviewed scholarly articles using citations. You may not go over the two-page limit, and you must meet the 1-2-page limit (within ¼ of a page either direction). Your voice, as the researcher, must be evident in the explanation of how this theory is appropriate for your research. This must be submitted as one Word document.
· The last page must be the Reference page.
You must use the information from the textbook reading this week to be successful on this assignment.
Note: Your assignment will be checked for originality via the Turnitin plagiarism tool.

The main purpose of the theoretical framework is to guide the research and allow the researcher to focus on a specific goal (Merriam & Tisdell, 2016). In addition, a solid theoretical framework is used to identify the problem related to the research topic, guide the development of the research questions, and determine the best type of research method for answering those questions. The theory used to explain this research was the measurement of intelligence theory by Binet and Simon (1916).
The measurement of intelligence theory by Binet and Simon (1916) provides a framework and foundation for modern standardized tests. The theory posits that intelligence cannot be measured through a singular tool; rather, the broad nature of one’s intelligence can only be fairly measured when compared to others of similar backgrounds. In France, Binet was tasked with identifying students that needed additional assistance in their educational journey as compulsory attendance became mandatory (Cherry, 2019). This led to the creation of the Binet-Simon scale, which later became known as the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale when it was standardized by Stanford University psychologist, Lewis Terman (United States Congress, Office of Technology Assessment, 1992). Because many modern standardized tests are based on Binet and Simon’s measure of intelligence theory and, likewise, the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Scale, this theory is an appropriate choice for this study which seeks to improve standardized assessment scores.
According to Bertolini et al. (2012), several factors impact students’ performance on standardized tests. There are also several strategies that may be implemented at various levels within the structure of a school to help improve students’ performance on standardized tests (Education World, 2019; Garcia & Thornton, 2014; National Association of Elementary School Principals, 2011). This research sought to identify themes related to the problem of students’ low-test scores on the OEA for Science, which is a standardized test; thus, Binet and Simon’s (1916) Measurement of Intelligence Theory is a logical choice for this research.
