Open Access Graduate Research Paper


The first step in the instructional development system is to identify the problem. The first aspect of identifying the problem is to compare the status quo and the ideal.

The status quo is that elementary students in the Council Bluffs Community Schools are not able to locate materials to write research papers. They cannot locate information in their personal interest areas. They are inattentive and lack motivation when given research assignments. They do not use the library for research.

The ideal is that they should be able to locate materials to write research papers. They should be able to locate information that they desire for their personal interests. They should be respectful, attentive, and eager when given a research assignment. They should use the library for research.
