Assessment Background
Psychologists need to understand research design and statistics for several reasons – from developing of new therapy techniques to evaluating the effectiveness of established therapies to understanding attitudes and motivations of particular groups. Research allows us to make contributions to the field of psychology. Statistics allows us to make sense of and interpret information around us.
An important part of our training and education in Psychology is to write research reports. The purpose of a research report (also known as lab reports) is to communicate to others the important points of a piece of research: (i) why you did it, (ii) how you did it, (iii) what you found and (iv) what you think it means.
In psychology, we follow a particular standard format (which is the APA 7 style). There are two reasons for doing this:
1) Ease of communication – it is easier to find information from a study if it is written in a standard format
2) The format makes it clear what information is important for scientific communication.
Hopefully, by doing this assignment, you accomplish the following learning objectives:
To become better informed consumers of research
To be sufficiently prepared for the further upskilling required by honours level research and statistics subjects
