Hi, I figured to start early with this. Research project Part 3. Please see on the bottom of this message requirements for this paper. Thank you.
As research is an important part of psychology, every student who completes a graduate level degree in the field is expected to be familiar with core components of research. Not all students will intend to have a career which includes research, and not all students will be ready for thesis/dissertation at this point in time. However, students are still encouraged to identify research in the field that conforms to their professional interests. To that end, students will begin to embark on a mission to answer a professional question of their choosing through a research design. This will be an ongoing project throughout the course of the semester. The two assignments students will submit should be materially related to the topic of their investigation. This will not only make literature reviews easier for completion of this capstone project, it will also help the students develop an appropriately critical eye for important research considerations related to their inquiry.
This research project will take place in five parts:
Each part of this major research project will have an equal weighted value of 10 points. Each part will be submitted separately throughout the course. Each part of the research project will be typed in accordance with guidance in the syllabus. Students may form groups for this project with no more than three students per group. Solo projects are equally welcomed. If students do form groups, the expectations will be higher, as the division of labor should create the ability to investigate each part more thoroughly. All students wishing to participate in a group effort will determine the groups collectively and will not be assigned by the professor. All groups will be identified by the submission of the first group assignment on February 5, 2018. At the end of the course, all students and groups of students will present their work to the rest of the class. This will allow all students to observe the critical thinking and investigative process of all other students in pursuit of future research endeavors.
Part 3 – In this assignment, students will individually submit ten research articles that support the literature review related to the research question. Students will submit a paper indicating why they believe each of the articles contributes to their research hypothesis. This should not be a repeating of the abstract, but a brief summary of the findings within the article which are germane to the current research question.
