FNN201 – Winter 2018 Practice/Portfolio Component Assignment Proposal Due: Mar 5, 2018
Assignment Due: March 27, 2018

Learning Objectives :

  1. Identify and critically examine a nutrient or dietary pattern of interest to a specific lifecycle

    stage or vulnerable (in relation to social determinants of health) population group

  2. Identify and provide a rationale for selection of dietary, anthropometric and/or biochemical

    measures to assess the nutritional status of groups in relation to the nutrient or dietary

    pattern of interest

  3. Apply theoretical knowledge of nutritional assessment and research methods to the design

    and justification for a descriptive study

  4. Build upon skills in nutritional assessment, research methods and critical thinking acquired

    from previous courses

Assignment :
Select a lifecycle stage/ vulnerable (in relation to the social determinants of health) population, and design a descriptive study to assess a nutrient or dietary pattern of interest. Your assignment will be in the form of concept note for a descriptive research study. In your concept note include:

Titleofproject
Researchobjective(s).
Rationale of project: This should include:

  • ▪  rationale and justification for both the population and nutrient or dietary pattern of interest in terms of why it should be researched. AVOID specific disease states (for example endocrine, gastrointestinal, autoimmune, genetic or CNS diseases) and focus on prevention of chronic disease or promotion of healthy outcomes in the general population

  • ▪  rationale and justification for selection of dietary, anthropometric and /or biochemical measures of nutrient or dietary pattern of interest, including comparing and contrasting strengths and weaknesses of methods

    Description of nutritional assessment methodology for the project. This may include:

explanation of how nutritional assessment measures will be interpreted in relation to the current literature (including any standards, reference values, cut-offs you will be using and/or other study results in the area with which you will compare your results)

the focus is on nutritional assessment methods not research study design – you are designing a descriptive study, not a randomized control study for example, since the majority of the class is taking research methods at the same time as this course.

Statements should be supported by a minimum of 10 original references from the peer reviewed literature. Maximum word limit is 2500, excluding references. Marks will be deducted for assignments that exceed the word limit.

Submission instructions :

You are required to briefly (2 minutes or less) present your proposed topic orally in your scheduled lab. You are also required to submit a bibliography including a minimum of 5 peer reviewed original articles on the topic, via D2L, before the start of your scheduled lab on Mar 5 . Feedback on your topic will be provided during the lab.

You are required to submit only an electronic copy of your assignment to Turnitin (no hard copy is required) before start of class on Mar 27 . Your assignment must include a cover page (including name, student ID, course code) and be typed in 12 point font, with 1 1⁄2 line spacing, numbered pages and standard margins. This assignment involves the use of Turnitin to assist you in avoiding plagiarism. If you choose not to have your work submitted to the plagiarism detection service, you must make alternative arrangements with your instructor by the end of the second week of classes , as described in the course outline.

Evaluation criteria :
Marking scheme: Note that the assignment is worth 40% of final grade
