    Assessment: Research Report

    Assessment description
    For this assessment, everyone will participate in a research project which you will write up as a research report formatted to APA 7th edition guidelines. Your research report will need to contain the following sections: Title, Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results, Discussion, References, and Appendices (your SPSS outputs).

    CO1: Recognise which of a range of basic statistical tests are appropriate in the analysis of data from selected studies.

    CO2: Compute a range of basic statistical tests using SPSS and show competence in the interpretation of results.

    CO3: Analyse selected psychological research reports.

    CO4: Undertake a research exercise leading to a psychological research report.

    Research Topic and Question

    The broad research topic will be exploring the way that different types of students differ in how they feel about statistics. Within this topic, you will need to choose a variable with two specific groups to compare (IV) and one specific outcome to compare them on (DV).

    The options for an outcome (DV) are:

    1. Statistical anxiety (see Tremblay et al. 2000) OR
    2. Attitude toward studying statistics (also Tremblay et al. 2000)

    The options for an IV with two groups are:

    1. Age (traditional students under 24 years of age vs non-traditional students who are 25 years of age and older)

    Once you’ve chosen your variables you will have your research question (a description of the broad topic of study). Insert your chosen variables into the following to form your RQ: “Are there differences among (insert your IV) students in terms of their (insert your DV)?”

    Then, depending on your choice of variables, your hypothesis will be:

    Do traditional and non-traditional students differ in statistics anxiety, and if so, how do they differ? OR
    Do students who have low and high previous math experience differ in statistics anxiety, and if so, how do they differ? OR
    Do traditional and non-traditional students differ in attitude to statistics, and if so, how do they differ? OR
    Do students who have low and high previous math experience differ in attitude to statistics and if so, how do they differ?

    In the video “Assessment 2.1 elaborating on the instructions” below I discuss about how you would turn your hypothesis into a testable hypothesis (i.e. word it as a specific prediction based on the conclusion of your literature review).
