Please start thinking about your topics. You will be working with a group to research a psychological disorder.
In class Journal Critique Assignment Instructions
Each group will respond to the following questions and turn in one typed sheet with the responses for your group with all group members names. The entire class will do the same article so that we can discuss it as a class. Ensure that all original articles are labeled with the individual student's name and turned in with your group assignment.
REVIEW EACH GROUP MEMBER'S ARTICLE. DOES EACH REPRESENT AN ORIGINAL RESEARCH STUDY PUBLISHED IN A PEER-REVIEWED JOURNAL? If not, please discuss this and help group members to learn what that means.
PLEASE COMMENT ON EACH TERM LISTED
1) A summary of what the researcher says about their topic and why it is important. This section should include their hypothesis.
2.) The basics on their research methods. Include # of participants, other description of participants, type of research (experimental, correlational, descriptive, case study) and a summary of their methods. Did they utilize a representative sample? A convenience sample? Attempt to control for the placebo effect and experimenter bias? Do you feel that they have an adequate number of participants?
3) Their findings and your opinion (critique) of their research methods. Did they accurately draw conclusions (remember correlation does not equal causation and should never be stated this way)? Anything the researchers were missing in their research methods? Other factors that may have influenced their results? Things you would suggest they should have done differently or future researchers should do if replicating the research?
Should be just the article and the text book (if needed to describe any of the limitations of the research and why it is a limitation). This must be listed in APA format.
Please join the Facebook group. We can post info and updates here and it gives you a means to contact me.
