Psy4500/week 4 – assignment: analyze experiments


This week’s assignment requires you to analyze an experiment.

Step 1: Find three different articles where researchers used the same type of research methodology to conduct an experiment.

To locate these scholarly articles, search across databases, using Roadrunner Search. An example of databases that you can consider are:

Psychological science  (0956-7976), Current Directions in Psychological Science (0963-7214), Psychological Science in the Public Interest (1529-1006), Perspectives on psychological science  (1745-6916), and Clinical psychological science  (2167-7026)

Step 2 : Prepare the overview of these articles. Include the following

  • A brief summary of the study
  • A one paragraph explanation of the background in the field leading up to the study, and the reasons the researchers carried out the project.
  • The significance of the study to the field of psychology
  • A brief discussion of supportive or contradictory follow-up research findings and subsequent questioning or criticism from others in the field   

Step 2. Evaluate the three articles according to the following: 


Easy to Comprehend-Low    

The hypothesis could be easily identified

The participants were identified

Steps taken to follow ethical guidelines were identified

Conflicting results from other studies were reported

Practical application and implication were reported

Article 1

Article 2

Article 3

Step 3.  Reflect on the following in your paper:

  • What information did the original study provide that the other reports of the research did not?
  • Do you feel that this information was necessary for the general public to know or that such information could be reserved for the expert reader?
  • What may have been left out in the secondary reports of the study that may have been misleading?
  • In the future, when and in what way do you think you will utilize each of these types of information about psychological studies?

Length: 2- 3 pages

Your paper should demonstrate thoughtful consideration of the ideas and concepts that are presented in the course and provide new thoughts and insights relating directly to the topic.  Your response should reflect scholarly writing and current APA standards.  Be careful to adhere to Northcentral’s Academic Integrity Policy.
