Week 6 Individual Assignment Explanation

Class,

This assignment is a proposal for a research study about self-regulation in both options – presentation and outline. 

The rubric says: 

 

Both Options require:

 

Use published human and animal research and behaviorist, social cognitive, information processing and constructivist theory to develop an outline of a research proposal to measure self-regulation in one of the following fields: 

 

·         Environmental or evolutionary psychology

·         Forensic psychology

·         Health or sports psychology

·         Industrial/organizational or engineering psychology

 

Research proposals need to include

An explanation of Purpose – why do you want to study self-regulation in your chosen setting?

Define self-regulation whichever theory you choose to use

Hypothesis – what you expect to have happen: the result you expect  

Athletes trained in self-regulation techniques using whichever theoretical techniques you choose will do better than athletes who do not.

Grade school children who are trained in self-regulation techniques using whichever theoretical techniques you choose will do better than children who do not.

Method including population and process – what are you going to do and with whom?

How many of whatever population will be trained in the self-regulation techniques using whichever theoretical techniques you choose.  That population will be compared to those who have not been trained in self-regulation techniques.

One school or classroom will be trained and compared to another equivalent school or classroom. 

 

The rubric also says:

Option 1: Self-Regulation Presentation

 

Prepare this outline of a research proposal as a 10-12 slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation with detailed speaker notes as if your audience were members of a foundation grant screening committee.

 

Address the following in your presentation:

·         A description of how you are proposing to measure self-regulation

·         The operational definitions, limitations, assumptions, hypotheses, and data analysis plans

 

·         The deficiencies a critic might identify in your statement of limitations and assumptions
