Psych 319: research experiment

Grading Rubric: Individual Research Project

Design a research experiment that addresses a major topic in the field of cognitive psychology. To motivate your paper, use three to ten peer-reviewed research articles as primary sources. Design all aspects of the study as though you were going to collect the data yourself. Manufacture and present data that provide support or refute your hypothesis. Submit a fully written research article. Please submit an electronic copy of assignments to me via Blackboard. Rather than sending me full research articles for step #2 below, send a single page of references in APA format. Additionally, your project:

1. Must be an original contribution to the scientific literature.

2. Must benefit society

3. Must be something that genuinely interests you.

4. Must relate to a cognitive process.

Different aspects of the assignment are to be completed ahead of time so that I may give you feedback. Please turn in the following on the date mentioned:

  1. Topic and thesis statement
  2. Introduction and Bibliography
  3. Methods section
  4. Results section
  5. Discussion section
  6. Peer-review / Rough Draft
