Credible Evidence Evaluation


Question Description

select two of the provided sources related to the problem you described and summarize and evaluate each.

The summary will identify fundamental underlying concepts of psychology present in the source. Additionally, you will evaluate the source according to the ethical guidelines of psychology. For each source, you will write two to three paragraphs and follow APA style with a reference page.

Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:

I. Getting Started: In this part of the assessment, you will explore the research you have encountered in this project and that you have selected to

determine the credibility of the research and how the research aligns with the ethical guidelines of psychology. Your exploration of the research in this

section of the assessment will help inform the decisions you make about your action plan and help you consider the value of credibility and following

ethical guidelines in research.

A. Select research from the provided resources that will support your plan and explain how the research is credible.

B. Explain how you discerned the credibility of the research provided.

C. Discuss how using credible evidence will support your action plan.

D. Explain how the research aligns with fundamental theories discussed. For example the web text stated: In the end, our theory will be useful if it (1) organizes observations and (2) implies predictions that anyone can use to check the theory or to derive practical applications. (Does people’s sleep predict their retention?) Eventually, our research may (3) stimulate further research that leads to a revised theory that better organizes and predicts.

We can test our hypotheses and refine our theories using descriptive methods (which describe behaviors, often through case studies, naturalistic observations, or surveys), correlational methods (which associate different factors), and experimental methods (which manipulate factors to discover their effects). To think critically about popular psychology claims, we need to understand these methods and know what conclusions they allow.

E. Describe how the research aligns with the ethical guidelines of psychology.
