Final Research Paper – due May 11, 2021 by 11:59 PM.
For this assignment, you will complete a research paper on The Stroop Effect and selective attention. The Stroop Effect is a phenomenon that occurs with the Stroop Task, a test that looks at what happens when we are asked to perform an ordinary task (such as reading or identifying a list of colors) when there is some sort of visual interference.
You are acting like you are the researcher who conducted this study! However, you do not have to actually collect the data – that will be provided for you. In order to understand how the study works and how data was collected, you will need to participate in an online experiment on the Stroop Effect located within the “psychology learning tools”. You should have already completed this part for the discussion in Week 4. And in Week 4 you were to identify your hypothesis. If you have decided to change your hypothesis, you may do so but get professor permission first.
Once you have completed the experiment you will need to analyze data that is contained in Week 4 Discussion Question and write a lab report (7- 10 pages – this page count does not include the title page or references) in APA style consisting of the following sections:
(More information on each section is located below)
Just like the mini lab report, you will participate in the online experiment so you know what the experiment is like.
Here is the data file: DATA
Remember that you were given additional details in the Hypothesis discussion.
You will write the report as if you were the researcher conducting the experiment. You have some options in your research question for this project. The data you are given includes the gender and age of the participants as well as two columns of results data (reading the words and saying the colors). You can choose one independent variable, either gender or age. You should try to use as much of your data as possible. Do not discard data unless there is a really good reason to do so.
Careful attention must be paid to APA Style as it represents a significant portion of your grade for the paper and is an intended learning outcome for the course. At the end of the term, you will submit your completed paper to your assignment folder.
Here is the grading rubric for the paper: Rubric
