The Visual Search Experiment was selected from the CogLab CD accompanying my course textbook and I performed the experiment. I have attached a copy of the report that I wrote on the experiment. Now a report must be created on the topic of the experiment. The report will include four sections: Introduction, Methods, Results, and Conclusion.
The project should adhere to the following guidelines:
For the main sections, it should have:
A title page
An abstract (not more than 250 words)
A literature review
Discussion or conclusions
Introduction: This should be one to two pages in length. The introduction provides a brief overview of what will be covered and the purpose of the research.
Literature review: The literature review is taken in part from what you researched from the scholarly journal articles. It is a synthesis of the material you found into a cohesive review of the literature on your chosen experiment. Included in the final project a literature review of research related to your experiment. It is recommended to find and review peer-reviewed journal articles on your experiment. For the final project it will require at least 5 peer-reviewed journal articles on current research (within the last 5 years) on your topic.
Methods: This section provides information on how the experiment was conducted. The Methods section of your final project report should include information about the participants and the stimuli, and a brief description of the procedures followed to complete the experiment successfully.
Results: The results section should explain your finding in the experiment in detail. The results section should explain your finding in the experiment in detail. It shouldn’t contain an analysis of the results. That part is done in the conclusion section.
Discussion and conclusions:
The difference between a great research paper and a marginal one is the depth and originality of the discussion and conclusions section. This is where you bring together what you have learned through your research as well as through the course regarding your topic in the concluding remarks of your paper. The discussion and conclusions section should be one to two pages in length. This section provides an analysis of the results based on the purpose of the research (often reviewing the research against the research hypothesis). Here are a few pointers to consider when developing the conclusion section:
Were the results of your final project experiment the same as your expected hypotheses?
Mention any results that run counter to your expected hypotheses. In your opinion, what factors could have influenced the results?
What real-life psychological phenomena might be explained or modeled by the findings of this experiment? How? Reference page: Remember to follow the APA format and style.
