Writing Research Reports: Each report (worth 1 unit of research credit) will be based on a scientific
article in a psychology journal that is pre-approved by the instructor unless the article is one cited in our textbook. Each paper should be no more than 2-3 pages in length and will be judged on the basis of clarity, spelling, grammar, and content. You are to summarize and critically evaluate the article by:
– Identifying the purpose of the study (why did the authors conduct this study)
– Stating the hypotheses in the study
– Summarizing in sufficient detail the method used (procedure, materials, and participants)
– Reporting the results from the study and the general conclusions
