Description of Research Methodology
Due Week 2 and worth 150 points

In this assignment, you will write an essay about the research
methods and ethical implications of a social psychology study. You will
get information about the study from one of the entries in the SPARQ
“Solutions Catalog”, which is a web site maintained by Stanford
University at
SPARQ is an acronym for “Social Psychological Answers to Real-world
Questions.” Each entry in the Solutions Catalog names a problem, and
then offers a solution to that problem, based on a research study in
social psychology.

To keep this assignment short and manageable, your only sources for this assignment should be from the SPARQ site and your course materials,
such as your textbook. There is no need for you to cite any of the
course materials. Therefore, no additional citations or references are
needed, beyond those from the SPARQ site.

In this exercise, you will choose one of the entries in the SPARC
site, and then write a two to three (2-3) page paper that meets the
following requirements.

  1. Begin your paper with a short introductory statement that clearly
    identifies the article from the SPARQ site that you are using, as well
    as the corresponding research article. Model your statement after the
    following example:

The article I selected from the SPARQ website is entitled “Boost
Grades by Reframing Failures” (Wilson, n.d.), which summarizes a
research article (Wilson & Linville, 1982) on the topic.

      • Please note that there are two APA “in-text citations” in this
        example. The first citation “(Wilson, n.d.)” is an in-text citation for
        the SPARQ article. The SPARQ articles are undated, which means that
        there is no date of publication reported. The “n.d.” designation is an
        abbreviation for “no date”.
      • The second citation “(Wilson & Linville, 1982)”, is an in-text
        citation to the original research article. We are asking you to cite
        this paper for practice in using APA, but are not requiring you to read
        the original paper. Normally, you should cite only those articles that
        you actually read and used, but we’re making an exception here for the
        purposes of practice.
  1. Briefly summarize the main details of your chosen social psychology
    research study. Identify the main research method(s) used in the study
    (e.g., case study, experiment, observation, etc.).
  2. Explain whether or not you believe the research methodology that the
    researchers used in the study was the most appropriate for the study.
    Provide a rationale for your response.
  3. Discuss whether or not you believe the research methodology used in
    the study is the one (1) method that provides researchers with the most
    information in general. Explain the main reasons why or why not.
  4. Explain the major ethical implications of the selected study (e.g.,
    informed consent, debriefing, etc.). Describe the main reasons why you
    believe the study was or was not ethical. Provide a rationale for your
  5. The final section of your paper will be a reference section that
    contains a corresponding reference for both of the in-text citations in
    your introductory statement (see point #1, above). In APA-style
    citations, in-text citations must match up with a reference in the
    reference section. You can model your reference section after the

Wilson, T. D. (n.d.). Boost grades by reframing failures. Retrieved from…
Wilson, T. D. & Linville, P.W. (1982). Improving the academic
performance of college freshmen: attribution therapy revisited. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 42 (2), 367-376.

      • These examples follow the APA conventions for an Internet article, and a professional journal article, respectively.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with
    one-inch margins on all sides. Check with your professor for any
    additional instructions.
  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the
    student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date.
    The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required
    assignment page length.

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

  • Describe research methods that are used for studying social psychology.
  • Develop an increased understanding of the dynamic between society and individuals.
  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in social psychology.
  • Write clearly and concisely about social psychology using proper grammar and mechanics.
