The final submission of your concept analysis includes: Introduction, Steps 1–6, steps 7–8 include the direct and indirect empirical referents, and conclusion with an operational definition. Your readings in Chinn and Kramer and Walker and Avant will guide you on these steps.
The introductory paragraphs should contain elements from Steps 1 and 2, as you are introducing the reader to your concept. Aim for an introduction that is 1–2 pages. The remainder of the paper will include Steps 3–8, with a summary paragraph at the very end. Aim for a total of 15–20 pages, including the title and reference pages. The idea here is to bring all of these separate parts, which have been due throughout the eight weeks, together into one major paper: your concept analysis.
It is critical at this point to incorporate the suggested revisions to your paper (as per your instructor), and your own thoughtful revisions, proofs, and edits. When you are finished, you should have a paper you can be proud of—and gained some clarity related to your scholarly project topic.
Follow the rubric closely. When you are merging the various steps of your concept analysis into your final submission, it will be important to go back and take a close look at your APA format (for example, headings, citations in text, and references). These may change when the paper is viewed in its entirety.

This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeSteps 3-6: Does the student include steps 3-6? Do these steps build on each other in a logical way and capture the essence of the concept analysis? Has the student incorporated the previous suggested revisions?
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeEmpirical Referents: Has the student delineated the empirical referents in a logical and understandable manner? If the empirical referents are aligned with the critical attributes, has the student adequately explained his/her reasoning?
This criterion is linked to a Learning OutcomeConclusion: Has the student included a short summary paragraph (no more than ½ pages) which ties the elements of the concept analysis together and provides an operational definition?
