Literature Review for the Intervention Proposal

  Literature Review for the Intervention Proposal

In Week One, you created an annotated bibliography. It is now time to take that research and begin working on your Intervention Proposal. One of the main components of an intervention proposal is the literature review. This week you will be drafting a portion of the literature review that you will include in your Week Six Intervention Proposal. For this week, choose three to four articles that include in a mini literature review that you will build on during Week Six to complete your Intervention Proposal. These articles should all be recent (published within the past 10 years). You should also cite other material (e.g., seminal works about the theories) as appropriate.

In your literature review: State your thesis statement that is your professional opinion. Briefly explain the organization of the paper. For example, if there is a major controversy in this literature, briefly describe the controversy and state that you will present research supporting first one side, and then the other. Or, if three methodologies have been used to address the question, briefly describe them and then state that you will compare the results obtained by the three methods. Begin by broadly discussing the literature. Then, narrow your review to the studies that are most related to your research question. Your literature review should resemble a funnel – wide (broad) at the top and narrow (focused) at the bottom.
Ensure that at least one article (but no more than two) supports the opposing side to your thesis. Describe studies in enough detail that the reader has a general sense of the study’s hypothesis, methods, and findings. Evaluate the studies. Do not provide article summaries; rather, provide descriptive and scholarly evaluations of the research. Discuss implications of studies (i.e., your judgment of what the studies show and where to go from here). It is common (and often better) to combine the description and evaluation sections. If you do combine them, do not forget to evaluate them. State your conclusion that reaffirms your professional opinion.

Test Construction(5-19-18) WK-1 ASSIGNMENT


Test Construction(5-19-18) WK-1 ASSIGNMENT

Determine an attribute, skill, trait, or attitude you are interested in measuring. Develop a 10 item test measuring various aspects of the chosen topic. Describe how you went about creating the test, and how you decided on the types of test items to include. Provide an assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the test created based on question content and type. In addition, include a basic guideline that could be provided to someone interested in creating a psychological test, including the basic steps and considerations in this process. The test and analysis should be included in one document in APA format. The analysis and guideline should be at least three pages in length.

PSYC 341 – Memory and Cognition

Answer the questions below

Question 1:

Some people do not hesitate to walk across a fiery pit of glowing coals. For most of us, firewalking is likely to be a big decision. Suggest what kind of measurements might tell us how firewalkers differ from people who refuse to firewalk. Be inventive; it’s not a research proposal. It’s fine to begin with cultural or genetic or experiential differences, but then try to pinpoint the mental trait or process or deficiency that would lead one person to be a firewalker and another to refuse. Remember that we want something we can measure: how fast? how much? how accurately?

Question 2:

Suggest an example of how others manipulate our attention. You might think of catchingsomeone’s gaze by flirting, hijacking their emotions in film, fooling them with stage magic, or pick an example you prefer. Include your interpretation: What does your example show about attention?

Question 3:

Let’s decide: Are we zombies*? Take a side pro or con and defend your decision. Are zombies conscious? If we are zombies—mentally at least—why do we need a big brain? If we are not zombies, why are we so bad at metacognition, or knowing what we know?

journal task


For this journal task, you will first select one of three tracks in the study of abnormal psychology (biological, psychological, or sociocultural), on which you will focus your final project research investigation. 

Next, you will analyze one of the articles within the track, which will provide practice for your literature review. Prompt: First, refer to the Tracks and Topics for the Final Project document and select a track that you would like to focus your final project on. (Note: In this document, you are provided with three articles for each topic, but you will need to find two additional articles to use for your final project.) 

Next, analyze one of the articles within the tracks which, will provide practice for your literature review. 

 Keep in mind that these questions are practice and preparation for the more detailed literature review elements to come. In your journal entry, answer the following questions about the article: 

1.  What is the title of the article? Provide the reference for the article in proper APA format.

2.  What is the purpose of the article? 

3.  What is the hypothesis of the study? In other words, what claims do the authors make in the article? 

4. What variables (factors) are being looked at as an influence on abnormal behavior? 

5. If these variables or the relationship between these variables have been studied before, what does the article indicate about the findings of previous studies? This shows historical significance. 

6. Describe the type of research design that was used in the study.  Do you think the research in this article was conducted in an ethical manner? Why or why not? 

7. What was the outcome(s) of the study, that is, the conclusions that the authors made as a result of the study?

 Each question requires an answer in one to three sentences, although you can write more if needed. This should result in a journal entry that is around 1 page in length. 

Be sure to cite directly from the article to support your answers.  APA formatting of sources.  Edit question’s body
