I’m trying to learn for my Psychology class and I’m stuck. Can you help?
You are responsible for analyzing an academic research article. You will choose one of the articles provided, read through it (multiple times) and address the items listed. Please review the resources on how to read a journal article, especially if you are unfamiliar with doing so. They are material that generally should be read more than once to get a good understanding and in order to be able to provide a thoughtful critique.
Please review the material below carefully. Your paper must include the following components. Point values for each are provided. Each component should be discussed in a separate subsection of your paper. Highlight the transition from one section to the next using the appropriate APA style level 2 subheading.
Psy 138 – Final Paper
Research Article Review
Topic of Study
This is where you briefly describe the topic of the research article. You need to also include the author(s)’ hypothesis/hypotheses in this section.
This is where you describe the sample, in your own words. Do NOT copy from the article itself. If the researchers picked a specific set of participants for a specific reason, note it here.
This is where you describe the research methodology in your own words. Make sure to highlight what type of research design was being used. If it is an experiment, identify the IV(s) and DV(s) and how they were manipulated or measured. For other designs, make sure to include information about the variables being measured. Make sure to summarize – don’t include all the details in the actual method section. Include an overview of the procedure, highlighting the main variables and procedural elements.
This is where you describe the results, in your own words. Do not include numerical values from the article. Write the findings in words, your own words. What did they find and was it consistent with what they expected?
This is an important section – demonstrate your critical thinking skills by critiquing the article. There are several items you might consider listed in the table above. In order to earn full credit, you need to not just list items but explain your ideas. Also, your critique needs to be more than just criticizing the participants in the study. That does not demonstrate a high level of critical analysis.
This is also an important section. In this section, you need to describe a follow-up study to the one in your article. Think about what might be an additional study that could shed more light on the topic. Avoid saying that you would do the same study again just with different participants. This will not earn you any points. Your follow-up study needs to be original but related to the same topic. Explain exactly what you would do, highlighting the IV and how you would manipulated it and the DV(s) and how you would measure them. Also, explain your reasoning for doing the study – why would it be a useful study to do? What would you expect to find?
*****Then, on a separate page at the end of your paper, you must include the APA-style citation.
