Unformatted text preview: 1 Applications of Research Methods Fall 2010 John Monahan CRN 22130138 2 Applications of Research Methods Fall 2010 John Monahan Table of Contents Final Project Checklists and Sample, filled-in Checklists 2 - 16 IRB Related Forms 17 - 20 Materials for In-class Experiments Experiment 1.3: Mental Rotation of Images 21 - 40 SPSS Instructions 29 Experiment 1.5: The Stroop Effect and Response Mode 41- 68 SPSS Instructions 55 Experiment 2.2: Scanning Short-term Memory 69 - 90 SPSS Instructions 79 Final Project Outlines for Write-up 91 - 105 Final Project Presentation Evaluation Sheet 106 3 FINAL PROJECT CHECKLIST #1 Name of Experimenter 1.Short title of experiment 2. Research problem: Describe the experimental phenomenon you plan to investigate. You must conduct a two-factor experiment with at least one manipulated factor, i.e. participants will be assigned randomly to levels of at least one of your factors. 3 . Name, describe and give reference citations for at least three theories that attempt to explain your experimental phenomenon. Give complete references for your citations in your attached reference list. Be sure to cite all five references . Theory A: Theory B: Theory C: 4. Name the two operational factors (independent variables) and each level of those factors. There must be at least two levels of each factor. Operational Factor A: Operational Levels Level 1: Level 2: Level 3: Level 4: Operational Factor B: Operational Levels Level 1: Level 2: Level 3: Level 4: 5. Name the actual (operational) DV or DV s you will measure (dependent variable(s)) Operationally defined DV measured 1: Operationally defined DV measured 2 (if any): 6. Indicate the research design you are using. ATTACH A TYPED, FIVE-ARTICLE REFERENCE LIST TO THIS CHECKLIST 4 FINAL PROJECT CHECKLIST #1 Name of Experimenter Sample 1.Short title of experiment: The effect of instructions on Stroop interference. 2. Research problem: Describe the experimental phenomenon you plan to investigate. You must conduct a two-factor experiment with at least one manipulated factor, i.e. participants will be assigned randomly to levels of at least one of your factors. Do instructions affect Stroop interference, or is Stroop interference constant despite changes in instruction. Half of the participants will be told that this is a pilot study and that they do not need to try hard. Whatever they do will be ok. The other half will be asked to respond as quickly as possible without making errors. Participants will indicate the presentation color of color words. Sometimes the color will match the word; sometimes, not. The difference in RT between those two conditions is Stroop interference. 3 . Name, describe and give reference citations for at least three theories that attempt to explain your experimental phenomenon. Give complete references for your citations in your attached reference list....
