main concepts? [9] Which of the theoretical perspectives in social psychology is the
author using? [12]
This you will have to figure out based on the overall approach and the literature
cited. Remember that the perspectives are very general, and most (middle-range)
theories used to develop a workable model are a more specific (derived from the
perspective concerning a particular topic). Most importantly, you must describe the
perspective, and be explicit about why you think the theoretical model used in the
paper is drawn from this general perspectives3. Research Design:Briefly describe the research design and sample. [6] What hypothesis is being tested (or developed)? What are the independent and dependent
variables? [6] What were the major findings? [6]
4. Evaluation: What do YOU think of the quality of the research reported? That is:
Does the data collected in the study seem sufficient/appropriate for answering the
research question; why or why not? [3] Do you think the author’s reported theoretical
findings (in the Discussion section of the article) are a valid interpretation of the data?
[3] What does it contribute to your understanding of the social psychology/self and
society? [9]
5. Finally, you are to consider how the application of other social psychological
perspectives might provide additional or complementary information. Describe each
of the 5 other perspectives (not included in your answer to question 1) [28]. Choose one and briefly speculate on how that perspective might contribute to understanding
the issue [6]
