Psychology Project

The Introduction to Psychology Project For this assignment you will apply psychological principles or use psychological knowledge to make a change or to solve a problem. This could be a personal issue “ improve your memory, stop procrastinating, lose weight, gain weight, overcome your fear of public speaking, improve your relationship with a sibling, etc., or it could be an issue that affects many people “ people spending too much on their credit card, eating junk food, spending too much time in front of a screen (TV, computer, phone), reduce bullying in the workplace, reduce violence among young men, etc. Some of you will be able to implement and test your ideas “ for example, changes in your behaviour which improves your productivity “ for others it may not be practical to test the idea “ reducing youth violence, for example “ but you should be able to construct a plan that would test the efficiency and effectiveness of your idea. The format of your project should reflect the following guidelines: Proposal and research Describe the issue or problem in detail that you will be addressing. Not only include information about the issue but also include what you plan to do to address the issue. You will need to defend and justify your proposal. What evidence in the literature supports your proposed solution to the problem? For example, if you propose that we should only use certain colours to paint the inside walls of our high schools because this will lead to reduced youth violence, you would review the research that has been done on the impact of colour on mood and behaviour. This section should be 2 to3 pages in length and you will use APA format. Methodology What did you do? You will need to describe your intervention or experiment clearly or concisely. Anyone reading your paper would be able to replicate your work precisely.Keep in mind the concepts of validity and reliability. Your proposal and method must address the actual issue or problem you have indicated it will and you should end up with similar results should you replicate the experiment. This section should be 1 page in length. Results and Data This section should include any data and a description of that data. This could be presented in table or chart form, but be sure to label and describe and tables or diagrams. If for practical reasons you were unable to generate data, propose charts and graphs that could be used and create mock ups using pretend data that would be reasonable. How could these particular data be useful? This section should be 1 page in length. Discussion and Conclusions Comment and critically evaluate your work. What worked and what didn’t? What would you change next time? What change in method would you make? The way data is collected? What the data actually means? What does the literature say about this? This section should be 2 pages in length. Presentation On the due date you are to make a short, informal presentation to the class on your work. Provide a brief description of your issue, methods and results.You will be limited to 3 minutes for this presentation. An alternative to this project is a short (6 page) research paper into a topic with the realm of psychology that interests you. If you select this option, please get approval BEFORE you invest time and effort in writing a draft. I’d rather not read several papers all on the same topic.
