Capstone Project Discussion HCA 620
Indeed, variables can be said to be the fundamental units of knowledge or specific information, especially when reviewing, analyzing, and translating the latest scientific research and evidence. With the availability of both independent and dependent variables, it is pretty important for the researchers to analyze their values and also see their relationship. You stated your definitions with clarity, and one could not agree less. In a concise way, I could add the definition of the independent variable as what the scientist changes or what changes (manipulated variable) on its own in research. In other words, the independent variable must be changed by the scientist, or it will change on its own; nothing else in the experiment affects or alters it (Sarikas, 2018). On the other hand, the dependent variable can also be briefly defined as; What is being studied or measured in an experiment. It is sometimes known as the responding variable, I.e., what shifts when the independent variable is changed or changes.
Write a proposal for your evidence-based capstone project that will be due in HCA-699.
The proposal should be formatted similarly to an executive summary (a common element in typical business plans). Explain the nature of your project and the type(s) of research required to support it.
For assistance in developing your proposal, see “Capstone Project Resources.”

You should proofread your paper. However, do not rely solely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so
indicates a lack of effort on your part, and your grade will suffer as a result. Papers with a high number of misspelled words and grammatical errors will be penalized. Before submitting your paper, go over it in silence and then aloud, and make any necessary changes. It is often beneficial to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Uncorrected mistakes are preferable to handwritten corrections.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point typeface (10 to 12 characters per inch). Smaller or compressed type, as well as papers with narrow margins or single spacing, are difficult to read. It is preferable to allow your essay to exceed the recommended number of pages rather than attempting to compress it into fewer pages.
Large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are also unacceptable, waste trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced, and have a one-inch margin on all four sides of each page. When submitting hard copies, use white paper and print with dark ink. It will be difficult to follow your argument if it is difficult to read your essay.
