Select an area in which you have expertise. Focus on a question that is inherently interesting and for which the answer would be useful to know.

  3. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 1 DQ 2 (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 1 Individual Assignment Fundamentals of Research Methodology Paper (UOP) • If you were going to conduct a survey at your place of employment for a school project, what information would you need to provide individuals in order to obtain informed consent? What steps would you take to help ensure privacy and confidentiality for a workplace survey? • Discuss the science of psychology. • · Explain the scientific method. • · Distinguish between qualitative and quantitative data. • · Describe the process of scientific theory construction and testing.

  4. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 1 Reflection (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 2 DQ 1 (UOP) • Ideally, you will use these reflections throughout the course and the program to document your development as a scholar, practitioner, and leader, and to reflect critically on the changes that occur during this process. • What is external validity? Why is it important in a research study? How can a researcher establish external validity within a study? Give a concrete example.

  5. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 2 DQ 2 (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 2 Individual Assignment Ethics In Psychological Research (UOP) • Do you think that observational research methods are too subjective? Why or why not? How can observer bias be controlled? (Use a concrete example to illustrate how you would control observer bias.) • Define ethics. • · Discuss the concept of risk/benefit ratio. • · Describe your selected issue. • · Evaluate the impact of your selected issue on psychological research.

  6. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 2 Reflection (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 2 Team Assignment Research Project Literature Review (UOP) • Create a 75- to 100-word statement describing how the week's learning has affected your thought processes, development, and professional disposition. This statement should reflect your personal learning process, challenges, moments of discovery, life experiences, and interactions. • Locate at least five journal articles concerning research studies that were conducted on your selected issue. These articles should be in peer-reviewed journals and not from the Internet. Note that a research study will include a method, results, and discussion section, providing the details of a study and the interpretation of the findings.

  7. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 3 DQ 1 (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 3 DQ 2 (UOP) • What is internal validity? Why is internal validity important? What can a researcher do to establish internal validity within a research study? (Answer this last question with a concrete example.) • What is the difference between individual differences variables and manipulated independent variables? What impact does this difference have on causal inferences? How does a repeated measures design deal with individual differences?

  8. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 3 Reflection (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 3 Team Assignment Research Project Descriptive Method Design (UOP) • Ideally, you will use these reflections throughout the course and the program to document your development as a scholar, practitioner, and leader, and to reflect critically on the changes that occur during this process. • Review briefly the literature that justifies the study, starting with the topic and why it is important, followed a brief review of past research (drawn from your first team project), and finishing with a list of what you will be studying in your proposed research. [Introduction]

  9. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 4 DQ 1 (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 4 DQ 2 (UOP) • What are the advantages and drawbacks of using the case study method? Do you think that the advantages to using this method are greater than the drawbacks? Why or why not? Couch your answer within the context of a concrete example. • Why would it be important for an experiment to be conducted in a natural setting as opposed to a controlled setting? What obstacles do researchers face in conducting experiments in a natural setting? How can they overcome these obstacles? (Use concrete examples to illustrate your points.)

  10. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 4 Reflection (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 4 Team Assignment Research Project Experimental Method Design (UOP) • Create a 75- to 100-word statement describing how the week's learning has affected your thought processes, development, and professional disposition. This statement should reflect your personal learning process, challenges, moments of discovery, life experiences, and interactions. • Describe the experimental method(s) that you selected to utilize in your research study and explain why you selected these methods. • · Describe the independent variable and how you intend to manipulate it in your experiment.

  11. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 5 DQ 1 (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 5 DQ 2 (UOP) • How are statistics and research design related? • What is a correlation? What are the different types of correlation? Why is it important to determine correlation? If anxiety and depression are correlated, what three possible directions of causality might explain this correlation? (Present this last point with a concrete example.)

  12. PSYCH 540 tutors PSYCH 540 Week 5 Individual Assignment Applied Research Paper (UOP) PSYCH 540 Week 5 Reflection (UOP) • Define descriptive and inferential statistics.
