Literature Review-Research in Psychology

Description

Write a 3-5 page literature review incorporating scholarly sources that will introduce a hypothesis for a research study using pre-existing data that will be conducted throughout the course. MUST MEET ALL CRITERIA IN SCORING GUIDE

Preparation

Throughout this course, you will work on developing a research project using data from the GSS Data Explorer website, which contains archival data. Archival data is preexisting data that has been collected by another individual or organization, and is available to be analyzed enabling us to draw new conclusions about the data.

In Assessment 2, you will use the website to extract your data using the two variables that you select for this assessment. Begin by selecting two variables of your choice from the following list. Note that “r” represents the participant. These are the variables that you will use throughout the course in your research project.

  • Satisfaction with financial situation.
  • Change in financial situation.
  • Opinion of family income.
  • Marital status.
  • Highest year of school completed.
  • Spouse’s highest degree.
  • Does r or spouse supervise anyone?
  • How often r attends religious services.
  • Condition of health.

Next, start to design a research topic involving the two selected variables. For example, if you select “condition of health” and “How often r attends religious services,” you may want to research how religion impacts an individual’s health and wellness.

INSTRUCTIONS

Write a 3–5 page literature review that incorporates at least seven scholarly sources. Address the following within your literature review. Ensure that each main point of your paper is supported clearly with evidence from your sources. Under some points, there are guiding questions to guide your thinking, but be sure to consult the scoring guide to make sure you are covering all of what will be assessed.

  • Explain the psychological concepts that were addressed in the research.
    • Are there any patterns, themes, or trends that you were able to trace in your research?
  • Describe the concepts related to the theory that will be the basis for your research.
    • Discuss the value and the limitations of the theoretical concepts.
  • Develop a plausible hypothesis, where you predict the outcomes of the relationship between your two variables, that relies on evidence and reasoning.
  • Use APA-style formatting, citations, and references.

Scholarly Sources

Before you conduct research, you need to center your hypothesis and supporting literature on this topic through a literature review, which will be the first piece of your project. You will need to find at least seven scholarly sources to use for your literature review.
