INDIVIDUAL RESEARCH REPORT (25%): FORMAT, SUBMISSION
() AND GRADING
The most important step in the research communication process is to clearly document the research and the contribution it makes to understanding human behaviour in a written manuscript. These written manuscripts are then reviewed by their peers, and (hopefully!) published in a journal. This individual report is designed to give you experience with a part of this process.
Reports are to be prepared independently; each team member must prepare a report separately from other team members. Evidence of collaboration or team work in writing the reports will result in major deductions from your lab component grade and in severe cases may result in a grade of zero on the lab component.
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 Cuttler s 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 at least 2 references to related empirical journal articles (e.g., to set up a foundation for your hypothesis). Articles can also be used in the discussion section to help put results into context.
A copy must be submitted to
Connect AND an identical copy must be submitted online to TurnItIn (by 11:59pm). If you fail to do either by the deadline, your report will be considered late. You will lose 10% for each day the report is late. To submit your report to TurnItIn go to, create an account, enter our course) and password (methods), and upload the same assignment, but without identifying information on it.
Grading: The lab report is worth 25% of your grade. You will be graded on the following: Abstract and Introduction (5%), Method and Experimental Design (5%), Results and Figures (5%), Discussion (5%), proper use of APA format and writing style (5%).
