For the second individual homework assignment, you will identify one research article, the focus of which is similar to assignment #1. Students will find a research article and summarize the findings. The goal of this assignment will be to identify problematic elements of the research question, research design, statistical analysis, and results based on the research question.
In psychology, as in many other health care related fields, there is an abundance of problematic research and research which is of poor quality. This type of research often confuses professionals in the field who do not know how to “separate the wheat from the chaff” and often confuses those not educated in the science of professional research. The ability to identify poor quality research and find higher quality research is paramount in conducting any type of empirical research in the field of psychology. Students should consider this as they move forward in their professional activities and write critically about this in the assignment. The length of this assignment is 3-5 pages. Late assignments will be accepted for a one-letter grade reduction for every week they are late. This may be adjusted with prior approval by the professor, but no assignments will be accepted after the final exam. All assignments will be turned in prior to the start of the final exam.
