Description: Instructions 1. The following sections, in this order, need to be included in your reports: – Title Page – Abstract – Introduction – Method (with optional
subsections for participants, materials, procedure, etc.) – Results – Discussion (optional subsections may include findings, limitations, future directions,
etc.) – References – Footnotes (optional) – Tables (optional) – Figures (all figures need to be here and not in the Results section) – Appendix A, Appendix
B, etc. (optional – here, you can include your questionnaires and other supplementary info if you would like) 2. Here are the formatting requirements for
each section heading: – Section headings that need to be centered and bolded: Method, Results, Discussion – Section headings that need to be centered
and not bolded: Abstract, References, Footnotes, Tables, Figures, Appendix X – The Introduction section should not have an “Introduction” header.
Instead, put the title of your report, centered and not bolded – All subsections (e.g. Participants, Materials) should be bolded and left-justified 3. Figures
(which include graphs and images) can be center-justified (center-aligned), and the figure caption (figure title) should be directly below the figure and
left-justified (left-aligned) 4. Regarding whether to put your name or just your student ID on your title page: I am just waiting to hear back from Dr.
Rawn about this. 5. If you cite two articles by the same author or the same set of authors: – In your reference list, list the most recent article first – If
both articles were published in the same year, then you put “a” and “b” right after the year, in your reference list. For example, Berndt, T. J. (1981a). Age
changes … Berndt, T. J. (1981b). Effects of friendship … Then, in your in-text citation, you would use this same format. For example, “… in people with
social anxiety (Berndt, 1981b).” 6. For in-text citations, you have two options: – Option A: You can cite a paper as part of the actual sentence, for
example, “As Schank and Rogers (1997) explain, …” – Option B: You can put the citation in brackets at the end of your sentence, instead of it being part
of your sentence, for example, “… the fluffiness of it all (Schank & Rogers, 1997).” – Note that with Option A, you use “and” to separate the author names
(because it’s part of a sentence), but with Option B, you use an ampersand (&) instead. 7. If you are citing two or more different articles in the same
sentence in your report: – You can again choose Option A or B for citing – If you choose Option B, then separate the different articles with a semicolon.
For example, “… for the love of data (Bateson, 2000; Smithers & Johns, 2006).” The articles should be listed in alphabetical order (by the authors’ last
names). 8. Try not to use any first person language in your report (“I”, “we”, etc.). For example, instead of saying “we found that…”, say “it was found
that…”. I won’t dock marks for this, but it is better style to use more objective language in the sciences. 9. APA has so many little stylistic guidelines that
it would probably take a week of classes to cover them all. So, I will not take marks off for minor APA issues that I did not explicitly mention in lab or in
emails to you as a lab. Please let me know if you have any concerns, and do use the owl purdue website for guidance:
https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/section/2/10/ . I’m also attaching an example APA-formatted article that you can use as a guide. Format: Your report
must be written using APA style and must include the following sections: Abstract, Introduction, Method, Results (including at least one graph or table),
Discussion and References (at least 2). See Appendix A of your Cozby and Rawn text, the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
(6th ed.), and Cuttlerâs guide (Chapter 5), for guidance in writing APA style reports. Reports must be between 5 and 7 double spaced 8.5 x 11 inch pages
(approximately 1500-1700 words). This page limit does NOT include a cover page, references, graphs, tables or appendices. You must use 12 point Arial,
Times New Roman, or Calibri font and margins must be set to 1 inch all around. Your paper should integrate into the introduction section (e.g., to set up a
foundation for your hypothesis) at least 2 references to related empirical journal articles. Articles can also be used in the discussion section to help put
results into context. Please use find two references (two different research articles). Also, please follow all the formats on the instructions, every specific
detail. Have the same title on the report as I’ve listed. All the findings from my experiment are in the additional file called “Psych217 Results”. The topic
relevancy, design & procedure, hypothesis & results are all there. Please interpret them. And use the two references you’re using to support my
experiment results. Thank you so much!! Please make this good!!!! I really need the mark!
