page 1 PSYC 305 – EXAM I Name ___KEY – VERSION 2 (added info)__ FALL 2005 PROFESSOR SPELLMAN SSN: ______________________________ Note – for most short answer questions, I have provided the “best” answer. Full or partial credit could be awarded for answers that had some merit but were less good. For stat questions, if an early part of an answer was wrong (e.g., variance), we checked to see if a later part of an answer (e.g., standard deviation) was correct based on your earlier answer. 1. Reading and Writing Research Reports (12 pts total; 5 mins) 1 pt. a. Which of the following journals probably will NOT have articles that have method sections in them? Circle as many as are appropriate. Psychological Review Journal of Applied Psychology Developmental Psychology Journal of Abnormal Psychology 2 pts b. What are the two reasons why your article needs to be INFORMATIVE? So other people could REPLICATE it exactly. So other people can EVALUATE it fully. c. Answer the following with one or more names of sections of a scientific paper. (These questions are for a REAL paper not for the short paper you are writing for lab.) The sections are alphabetically: Abstract, Appendix, Discussion, Introduction, Method, Title Page, References. 1 pt each except where noted below: 2 pts. i) Which two sections are the most “factual”? _ ii) Which section is the best place to put a long list of the materials you’ve used (e.g., the whole list of words from your experiment?) _ Appendix iii) Which section is the best place to put predictions of what you expect to find? _ Introduction iv) Which section will likely have the most citations to other peoples’ research? _ Introduction (“References” is not correct.

Explain. Abstract. It’s a summary of what you did, how you did it, what you found, and what it means – hence overlaps with the other major sections. vii) If you don’t exactly quote another author but you do base your study on her article, do you need to cite that article in the text and the reference section?
