Research: Application to Life
Select a topic related to your intended profession (or degree area) that you would like to learn more about. Address the following as you respond:
Briefly explain this topic. Why is it of interest? Why do you think it would be helpful at this time?
Summarize what type of research you would use to conduct a study on this topic (experiment, survey, correlation, etc). Why is this type of research appropriate for your topic?
Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words and utilize at least one scholarly source (e.g., the course textbook, a peer reviewed article from the Ashford University Library, or a professional web source), cited according to APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates who chose a different type of research than you. Do you agree or disagree that the research selection is a good fit for the selected topic? Why or why not? Reinforce your decision regarding your classmate’s research selection with a reference from the literature that supports your claim. Would you reconsider your own choice of research? Explain any changes you would make.
Ethics is an important part of every research project. Adherence to ethical guidelines helps researchers protect both themselves and participants. Reflect on the study you proposed in Discussion 1 this week. Review the reading from your course textbook as well as the Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct and Institutional Review Boards Frequently Asked Questions: Information Sheetarticles. Select one ethical guideline from these sources that relates to your study proposal from Discussion 1. Briefly describe the guideline and explain how you would address its specifications in your study. Provide an example and be as specific as possible as you explain.
The class’ selections should vary (please do not all pick the same guideline) and your selection must relate to your specific topic from Discussion 1. Your initial post must be a minimum of 200 words and utilize at least one scholarly source (e.g., the course textbook, a peer-reviewed article from the Ashford University Library, or a professional web source), cited according to APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
