Question Description

In this last Critical Questions discussion, we are looking at the final piece of the research puzzle. To this point we have looked at the research question, experimental design, the potential for bias in the researcher. The conclusion is the product of all that work.

We are also considering how the APA Code of Ethics you were introduced to last week were addressed in the article.

Closely read the following article. Create a post identifying any potential ethical concerns the research study may have and whether the researchers addressed those concerns within their study design. You will see any posts of other only after you create yours. Your post is due by Sunday, 11:59 p.m.. When examining research for the influence of bias or personal/political agendas, examine the following questions.

  1. When looking at the conclusion - see if it answers the question that was originally posed. Does it seem to be based on the data that was shared? Did the author(s) acknowledge the potential flaws in their work? Did they identify future steps for research?
  2. Did the authors mention any specific ethical considerations? What steps did they take to address the APA Code of Ethics and its concern with the well being of people participating in the study.

Constructing Rich False Memories
Institution Affiliation




The research on Constructing Rich False Memories of Committing Crime pursues an
understanding on the extent to which a person can be convinced that he or she had committed a
crime. The research starts by detailing how a person can be made to recall a crime that actually
they never committed. This means that such an exercise would lead to false confessions. The
research aims at looking into whether “false memories of committing the crime can be generated
in a controlled experimental setting” (Shaw and Porter, 2015)...
