One of the reasons why research is so significant to the field of I/O psychology is because
of the matter of fact that this is a scientific discipline. I/O psychologists very often design
scientific examinations to answer different questions. Methodological analysis and statistical
analysis are of utmost importance to the field of I/O psychology. For instance, I/O psychologists
very often use organized research to help organizations in making better decisions regarding their
employees’ behavioral problems. In other cases, I/O psychology applies the use of statistical
analysis to enhance the overall effectiveness of work performance (Jex, 2002).
My general question is concerned with the health of college students. Being a college
student myself, and a mother, I was even more interested in how much more college students
who are married and have children are stressed and if their health is more affected when
compared to single students.
My general is question:
How stressful is college life and can it affect one’s health?
My specific is question:
Does being married, with children, have an adverse affect on college students’ health?
Hypothesis:
College students who are married with children are more stressed and less healthy than students
who are single.
The independent variable is married with children. The dependent variable is the level of stress
and health.

Assume that an industrial/organizational psychologist is using integrity tests to advise
an organization about employee selection and promotion. What ethical conflicts might
this create in terms of his/her responsibilities to the organization and/or its employees?
Ethics play a major role in the field of psychology and of course in the department of I/O
psychology. Whenever a psychologist is making decisions, he or she must take into
consideration the Ethics code. The ethics code provides guidelines to any psychosocial work in
regards to “the clinical, counseling, and school practice of psychology; research; teaching;
supervision of trainees; public service; policy development; social intervention; development of
assessment instruments; conducting assessments; educational counseling; organizational
consulting; forensic activities; program design and evaluation; and administration” (APA, 2010,
para 2). According to the Ethics code, there are six basic principles, which describe the most
common ethical standards. These are listed in our textbook as follows:
Competence:
A psychologist only does work that he or she is competent to perform.
Integrity:
Psychologists are fair and honest in their professional dealings with others.
Professional and Scientific Responsibility:
Psychologists maintain high standards of professional behavior.
Respect for People’s Rights and Dignity:
Psychologists respect the rights of confidentiality and privacy of others.
Concern for Others’ Welfare:
Psychologists attempt to help others through their professional work.
Social Responsibility:
Psychologists have a responsibility to use their skills to benefit society” (Spector, 2008, p. 22).
Besides the Ethics code, psychologists can also use other professional resources in
helping them acquire the knowledge to make ethical decisions. In addition, he or she can consult
