Students will create a research question, form a hypothesis, identifying the independent and dependent variables, design a study, analyze and collect data to support their hypothesis.
Students will write an APA style paper reporting their findings. The paper will include a literature review, methods, results and discussion section. Students desiring to earn up-to-25 additional points will give an oral presentation of their project.
The literature review listed above will include a minimum of three (3) journal articles and report the summaries of each article in the paper.
I HAVE THE 3 ARTICLES/LINKS. NEED TO BE SUMMARIZED.
I WENT WITH AN “OBSERVATIONAL STUDY”
Section1 (I ALREADY HAVE THIS DONE)
Create a research question – 5 points
Form a hypothesis (testable question) – 5 points
Identify the Independent and Dependent Variables – 5 points
Select and describe your research method – 5 points
Review and list 3 journal articles that relate to your hypothesis – 10 points
Section 3 (THIS IS WHAT I NEED DONE)
Write an APA style paper reporting your findings. The APA paper will include an abstract, literature review, methods, results and discussion section
The literature review will include a minimum of three (3) journal articles and report the summaries of each article in the paper. The summaries should relate and provide key information to your study.
Include section 1 in your paper
There also needs to be some type of graph or pie chart that shows the results of the study.
Teacher does not care about length or word count as long as all the data is written in the paper.
Research Study Part I
I. Does jogging lead to a positive mental attitude?
II. Jogging helps improve a person’s state of mind (mental attitude).
III. Independent Variable – Jogging vs. Not Jogging
Dependent Variable – Mental attitude
Type of Research
IV. I will be conducting an observational study. I will have two to four groups of 4 people. Before anyone jogs I will collect information as to what everyone is feeling or thinking. Once information has been collected, I’ll have the first two groups will jog. The second two groups will be the ones not jogging. To prove my hypothesis even more, I also want to have the non-joggers, jog, and collect information again from all groups.
