research paper 928

Research paper – Find an empirical study (a study that has been conducted by psychologists and reported about in a scholarly journal – from psycharticles database on the library website) relating to any topic we have been studying. Write your paper discussing how this article relates to the material discussed in text and lecture. About half your paper should be a synopsis of the article. IN YOUR OWN WORDS describe how the study was done – who were the participants, what was the research methodology used, and what was the design? In the rest of your paper, describe how the findings relate to information presented in text and lecture materials. Does it support, enhance, or contradict the information you already knew about this topic? As you write this paper particularly it is important to remember that I want to hear YOUR voice. I want to hear what you thought about how the research was conducted, on whom, and what results were found. Please do NOT copy directly from the article or it will be considered cheating and penalized accordingly.
