Psych 260 Discussion Questions Week 1 Topic 1 How are empirical journal articles different from review journal articles? How are both types different from a chapter in an edited book? -Empirical journal articles are not based on beliefs or theories. Empirical journal articles outline actual experiences from realistic theories and research that are based on experiments that use empirical methods or research (Morling, 2015). -When writers summarize current research that have been done they are considered review journal articles. These can include multiple studies that have been done on specific topics and then the summaries are categorized into logical forms. -Unlike empirical journal articles or review journal articles, which focus on specific research, a chapter in an edited book offers the writer a broader platform. Week 1 Topic 2 Harlow's study of attachment in baby monkeys is an example of basic research. Brainstorm some applied research questions that this basic research study might generate. Start by identifying some of the domains to which you might apply these findings (such as education, parenting, or health care), and then give a specific (applied) research question for each domain. In my town I have seen more cases of parent abandonment than anyone wishes to see. It is unfortunate. The most common reason is drug addiction. This brings up a few questions: Parenting-Due to the fact that a newborn infant is taken away from a mother who is addicted to drugs will the baby grow up to have a good relationship with a parental figure if the newborn/mother connection was not made at the hospital? Will comfort be successful without the birth mother? Education-Will the lack of newborn/mother connection effect his home life including education? Environment-Will he be able to take on challenges and different situations as he grows? Science-Science says the newborn/mother connection is crucial for comfort in newborns. What further studies and research can we perform regarding attachment in this type of scenario? Reference: Morling, B. (2019).

Week 2 Topic 1 Recall the three types of claims and the four big validities. Explain which validities are most relevant for each of the three types of claims. Researchers do not usually aim to achieve all four of the big validities at once, why not? The four big validities: -external -statistical -internal -construct The three types of claims and validities that are most relevant: -causal: all validities may be applied. -frequency: statistical, external, and construct may apply. Internal validity would not be used as frequency does not assert causal relationships (Morling, 2015).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
