    Psychology is a self-correcting science and critical evaluations of past studies lead to new discoveries and research approaches. 

    1. Once the Stanford Prison Study was concluded, Dr. Zimbardo published initial research findings in popular media outlets such as Life magazine, Society magazine, and The New York Times Magazine. Why are these channels not appropriate for the publication of a scientific study? Are they primary sources or secondary source? why? MUST Consider the value of primary vs. secondary sources in your answer.

    2. In some media accounts, the study’s guards (and often the prisoners) are typically described in a uniform fashion (e.g., “They became sadists”). Yet, there is evidence that there was definite variance in guard behavior, and that only three (one third) of the guards were classified as bad guards (Le Texier, 2019; Zimbardo, 2007). How could such misrepresentations impact the study’s validity and conclusions? MUST Explain by referring to at least one type of validity.(internal validity or confounding validity etc) and elaborate.
