Research paper on
“How does the way other people treat you affect your self perception?” for psychology. I have already done the outline and would like the assignment on that
1) What ' research question or questions would you like to answer? Do you have a hypothesis or do you need to formulate one after reading more literature on the topic? 2) Even if you have not fully developed a hypothesis, what kind of methodology would you use to tackle this research question? If you have a hypothesis, make one prediction based on this design. 3) Why did you choose this methodology? Why is it better than possible alternatives? Are there alternative explanations to your results other than your hypothesis? How does the way other people treat you affect your self perception? The way other people treat you has an affect on your self perception. If how other people treat you has an affect on your self perception, your perception of yourself and therefore behaviour will change depending on if someone treats you good/bad. I have chosen the descriptive design since it includes naturalistic observation and allows you to get a closer look of the participant’s behaviors, thoughts, and emotions which is all I need to know for my research question. I’d have to do more research to know if there are alternative explanations to my result other than my hypothesis or not. I would like to do my research on self perception. My research question is, “How does the way other people treat you affect your self perception?” I already have my hypothesis, “The way other people treat you has an effect on your self perception.” The type of research design I have chosen to test my hypothesis with is descriptive research. I have also formed a prediction based on my hypothesis and research method, “ If how other people treat you has an effect on your self perception, the perception you have of yourself and therefore your behavior will change depending on if someone treats you good or bad.

Strong and clear logic for the proposed study being the next step. Details on background literature are not too excessive and not too scarce, making the current state of knowledge clear. Outstanding clarity and transitions Good coverage of existing research and support for the research question/hypothesis and proposed study. Background literature covered in adequate details. Some links/flow of arguments and transitions are confusing or unclear Adequate coverage of background research and support for the research question/hypothesis and proposal. Missing important details on background literature or too many/too few studies covered to support and rationalize the proposed study. Unclear and confusing flow and transitions Coverage of some background but does not set up the proposal. Studies included in the background literature are not well explained and links to proposal are unclear. Very difficult to read or follow any logical flow to the proposed study Methodology (points x 2.5) 25% The methodology description (what is being carried out and measured, the research setting and what is being controlled) is extremely clear and relevant to the research question. Logical flow of methods and possible efficient use of figures/tables to display methods Methodology description is good and the research set up and link to the research question clearly articulated; some unclear details and lack of explanation of specific measurements or research design. Efficient use of space Methodology is described adequately, with unclear specifications of measurements, research design, set up and/or link to research question. Inefficient use of space provided to outline the required details of methods Inadequate coverage of research methodology, unclear how methods will lead to data that can answer the research question Discussion (points x 2.5) 25% In-depth justification and discussion of methodology and how it answers the research question, expert integration of information from the course Good, clear discussion and justification of methodology for answering the research question, course material is integrated in the discussion but some confusing links or holes such that the method is not fully supported Somewhat adequate discussion and justification of methodology but there are missing links to course material for justifying approach, discussion is lacking depth Poor justification of research methodology, and unclear discussion of the chosen methodology and how it answers the research question. Relevant course material is not integrated into the discussion Spelling, grammar, structure, and follows directions [7-10 pages double spaced, times new roman, 12 pt. font, 1 inch margins, APA citation style]; Evidence/Sources are primary research (points x 2) 20% No misspellings or grammatical errors, clear and cohesive paragraphs, easy to digest transitions, pleasant to read, perfectly executed the instructions; Sufficient sources are used to build an argument and are cited specifically enough for accurate representation of information Three or fewer misspellings and/or grammatical errors, a bit of confusion in following topics and in transitions between paragraphs, possible errors in format; Nearly sufficient sources applied to support the proposal/sources are not cited completely accurately Noticeable spelling & grammar mistakes, difficult to read and lacking a logical flow, errors in format; Sources do not provide sufficient rationale for the study and sources are not properly covered or inadequate information from sources is cited Numerous misspellings and/or grammatical errors, paragraphs are jumbled and confusing to read, no flow through the paper, points are incoherent; Sources are improperly cited Final paper: Research Proposal In your final research paper, you will take 7-10 pages (double spaced, times new roman, 12 pt. font, 1 inch margins, APA citation style) to propose a study design to answer a research question about behaviour. The paper will consist of: 1) A synthesis of background literature that rationalizes your topic of research (introduction; max 3 pages) 2) A research question, hypothesis, and specific prediction(s) (last part of introduction that briefly touches on the proposed study so that your specific prediction(s) relevant to the proposed study make sense to the reader; .5-1 page) 3) The methodology you will use (methods; max 3 pages): what will subjects have to do? What will they be informed with or guided by? What are the independent variables to be manipulated or varied and the dependent variables to be measured, and how are they operationalized (i.e., what are you specifically measuring and interested in, in terms of behavior, biology, thoughts, perceptions, learning, etc.)? How will the data be recorded? How will you control possible third variables? To be efficient with space here you are welcome to create figures or tables to help present your methods and place in text. 4) A justification and discussion of your chosen methodology (max 3 pages): why did you choose this particular study design? What results do you expect and how does the design rule out other possible explanations of those results? What are the ethical considerations of your design to the human participants or animals involved, and how do you minimize the risk of harm to subjects, and justify potential harm? What can the results from your proposed study inform, and what can they not inform? Note, the sky is the limit with your proposed study. You have unlimited resources, space, funding, test subjects of any kind, so have fun and try to design something that answers a question you are genuinely interested in! Possibly your study would never be approved by an Internal Review Board, but as long as you justify it, you are following the assignment.
