Can you help me understand this Psychology question?

Your paper needs to be completed in essay format and should be no longer than 3 pages in length (excluding Reference List). Be sure to use correct spelling, grammar and punctuation. To complete this assignment, you will need to complete the following three parts

Part 1: Reference List • Choose one of the articles from the list located at the end of this document. You might want to read through the articles before making your final choice. Set aside plenty of time to do this assignment. The articles may be difficult to read. Don’t worry too much about the statistical portion of the results. You can skim the statistical section since the authors will also summarize their results in words. • Make a reference list for this single article using APA format. Include this reference list at the end of your document. •

Part 2: Research Article Summary (approximately 1.5 pages) o Answer the following questions in essay form, using your own words: ▪ What was the overall background to this article?What was the researcher’s question or hypothesis (there may be more than one)? What was their rationale for their hypothesis? ▪ What are the key variables? • What was the independent variable (or independent variables)? • What was the dependent variable(s)? ▪ Who were the participants? ▪ How did the researchers measure each of the key variables? ▪ What method did they use to test their hypothesis? ▪ What were their results? ▪ How did the researchers interpret their results? In other words, why do they think that they got the results that they did? ▪ What were some of the limitations of the present study, and what suggestions did the authors provide for future research?

Part 3: Reactions and Research Plan (approximately 1.5 pages) o Reactions (approximately 2 paragraphs) ▪ Did anything about this study (the author’s methods, results, and/or conclusions) surprise you? Why or why not? ▪ Do you think the researchers used an appropriate method? o If yes, why do you think this way? What were some specific strengths of their method? o If not, what would you have suggested they do differently? Note that you may not simply address the limitations noted in the original article; I want to see you thinking critically about what they didn’t write. o Follow-up study (approximately 3 paragraphs) ▪ If you were tasked with creating a follow-up study, what would you do and why? Briefly explain: o How does your study relate to the original study? Why would this be a beneficial follow-up? o Who will be in your sample, and why? o How will you collect your data? o What steps will you take to control for bias and to ensure your study.
