Format your study according to APA style including for your list of references at the end of your write up (6 is still fine). 2% 2 1.6 1.4 1.2 <.1.19
Start with a good introductory sentence or two presenting the overall research problem and your topic. 1% 1 .8 .7 .6 <.59
Literature review. This is the review you included in your proposal document, so you can edit this and include that component here. Discuss at least 5 relevant research to inform the research topic you are exploring. Write the review as a good narrative (linking their relevance back to your research topic). Spend approximately half a page per study. This should be put into your own words. Discuss what is missing from prior research and how your project addresses the gap and is novel in this


2 1.6 1.4 1.2 <1.2
A good theoretical rationale and clearly defined purpose statement are presented for the current study (for all study designs including qualitative studies that are inductive in terms of theorizing). Use an edited version of what you included for your proposal. 1%


1 .8 .7 .6 <.6
What is your research question(s) and hypotheses (if this is a quantitative or mixed methods design with a quantitative component, make sure that you list a hypothesis for each comparison/correlation you will compute in your study).

Hypotheses and/or research questions should flow from the literature discussed in your introduction section. 1%

1 .8 .7 .6 <.6
Good design section. Outline the methodological approach you are adopting (quantitative (which type? Differences or correlational, etc), qual (which type) or mixed methods – which type?) and why this approach is a good fit for your research question. Note how this relates to possible ways of analyzing your data. 2 2 1.6 1.4 1.2 <.1.19
Participants section

How were your participants recruited? How many participants were there in total? What was the gender distribution of your participants? Any other demographic information? Age 2%

2 1.6 1.4 1.2 <.1.19
Materials section

Include a summary of ALL materials used in the study. If you use existing measures talk about reliability and validity (psychometric information). Include all materials used as an appendix to your study. 2%

2 1.6 1.4 1.2 <.1.19
Ethics – talk about how your study adheres to ethical principles of the APA. Include reference to a consent form. 1% 1 .8 .7 .6 <.059
Procedure – describe in detail the entire experience of the participants in your study or what was done if you are using existing data (e.g., how did you find blogs, reddit posts, etc.) 3% 3 2.4 2.1 1.8 <1.8
Summary of data. Include at least 1 table labeled to represent the main patterns (descriptive statistics for quantitative studies – i.e. means and standard deviations or frequencies per comparison category for a frequency analysis, frequency of themes and their definitions and example quotes for each theme identified) and comment on the main patterns in your data – what do the data look like? For themes, which are more common? Provide meaningful titles for your table(s) 5 5 4 3.5 3.0 <3.0
Summarize the analytic method used to make sense of your data and how it answers your research question. Then present the results of the inferential statistics or more detailed qualitative analytic procedures. Present the inferential statistics for each of your hypotheses or engage in qualitative analysis for your data 5 % 5 4 3.5 3.0 <3.0
Summarize the main findings. If quantitative, which hypotheses were supported (which tests were significant) and which were not supported (not significant). If qualitative, describe the main themes that were identified in words. 2% 2 1.6 1.4 1.2 <.1.19
What do your results mean (in terms of the prior research literature that you discussed in your introduction section). Link your results back to the research you discussed in your introduction and literature review. What is the same? what is different? 5% 5 4 3.5 3.0 <3.0
Give a critique of your own methodology and what you would do differently if you did the same study again? Think about limitations of your design and restrictions in terms of access to participants, etc. 4% 4 3.2 2.8 2.4 <2.4
What are some interesting future directions (i.e., different studies exploring the same research question) for this research topic? This is where you think creatively and ponder what you would do perhaps if you had a grant to explore this topic 1% 1 .8 .7 .6 <.059
Conclusions -summarize the study and its findings and overall relevance. 1% 1 .8 .7 .6 <.059
