Read a paper written by an actual Research Methods and Design II student from a prior semester.

You will read a paper written by an actual Research Methods and Design II student from a prior semester. This paper includes two studies the student conducted, with Study One introducing the main variables and Study Two offering an extension with replication of Study One. Your job is to read the whole paper and then complete your assignment in a word document, and submit it (attach the word document) to the assignment dropbox on Canvas by the due date – You can find an example of what I am looking for in Canvas as well:

In Part One, I want you to answer the following (2 points for each question, or 18 points total):

  1. What is the hypothesis for study one? Please give me both the null and alternative hypotheses when you answer this question
  2. What is the independent variable(s) for study one? Make sure you tell me how many IVs there are and how many levels there are for each IV
  3. What is the dependent variable(s) for study one? Note: there are several of these, so focus on the ones the author analyzed.
  4. What did they find in study one? Give the general outcome
  5. What is the hypothesis for study two? Please give me both the null and alternative hypotheses when you answer this question
  6. What is the independent variable(s) for study two? Make sure you tell me how many IVs there are and how many levels there are for each IV
  7. What is the dependent variable(s) for study two? Note: there are several of these, so focus on the ones the author analyzed.
  8. What did they find in study two? Give the general outcome
  9. I want you to review the references and spot the reference(s) that is not in APA format and rewrite it for me according to APA rules. Note: there may be as few as zero and as many as ten incorrect references, so make sure to look at them all!

In Part Two, write an abstract for the paper!This should be fairly easy, as you can paraphrase the information from Part One. However, this time you need to write it in one short paragraph (150 to 250 word maximum!). Note: there are two studies, and you have to mention both. Yes, this is tough, but authors often summarize (in the same short abstract)papers that they wrote that may include six or seven different studies! My suggestion is to find the overlap between both studies and discuss both simultaneously. For example, “Both studies looked at X, but study two also examined Y.”That is, your abstract should include the following (2 points each,14 points total):

  1. Include the word “Abstract” at the top of your abstract
  2. Identify the general problem or research question (the hypotheses) for both studies.
  3. Note the participants for both studies
  4. Note the IVs and DVs for the studies
  5. Note the findings for both studies
  6. Note the overall conclusions / implications of the two studies
  7. Please include keywords for the study (at least 5 keywords or phrases – these are not included in the total word count)

Writing Quality (8 points)

  1. Avoid run-on sentences, sentence fragments, spelling errors, and grammar errors.
  2. The writing should be PERFECT here. You will lose a point for each writing error, so proofread, proofread, and proofread some more!
  3. Get a group member to review it for you! Review their abstract!

Total points possible: 40 points
