Let’s continue our work with our original hypothesis and discovering ways to test this. Last week you came up with an experimental approach to test your hypothesis. This week, create a research approach that is non-experimental or correlational. Make sure to watch this week’s lectures before beginning.
This week present your work similar to a research report you might see in a journal. Be as specific as possible to illustrate your understanding of a non-experimental or correlational research design.
Include the following sections with Headers and Subheaders:
Background Information/ Purpose
Include your background paragraph and purpose.
Hypothesis Include your H1 and H0.
Participants Describe your participants and sample- Apply feedback from Week 3.
Measures Identify your variables (IV and DV) and include how you will measure you variables. It is always best to use established existing measures.
Procedure Present exactly what will occur and how it will occur.
Analysis of Approach Make sure in the analysis plan to explain the type of methodology you have created (quasi experimental, correlational, within groups, cross sectional, longitudinal, pre-post-test design etc. ) .
Post your initial post by Wednesday and make sure to check back regularly to respond to questions and comments. You are required to respond to posts from your professor. Throughout the week, post to at least two peers with substantive feedback, questions or insights.
Present your work in APA style with primary and secondary source citations, as needed.
