Negative Correlation Would Show Psyc 1 Ccsf Child

  1. a sample group – who do you want/going to get in your
    study? where are they from? how will you get them to participate? Talk
    about the skew – what are they like? (20%)

    1. Example: I want Chinese American women between the ages of 18-50,
      either born in the U.S. or immigrated before age 6. I want women who
      have been immersed in Chinese America, so I don’t think I want ethnic
      Chinese women adopted by European American families. I want both
      English-speaking and non-English speaking, so I will have to get a
      translator if necessary.

        1. I will have to limit my sample to women in the Bay Area because I
          can’t/won’t travel to other cities (this was before the Internet).
        2. To get my sample, I will go to different places in the Bay Area to
          tell people about my study; for example, I will go to Chinese American
          churches, CCSF and SFSU classrooms, and Chinatown service organizations.
          I will ask my Chinese American friends to pass the information on to
          their female friends and post my flyers in the break rooms at their
          workplace.

          1. Given your recruitment strategy, what kind of participants will you
            get? Explain why you think so, and explain how you think this might
            affect your study.

            1. For example, since I will be recruiting from Chinese American
              churches and colleges and service organizations, I will probably get
              blah blah kind of women from blah blah backgrounds because blah blah
              reason
            2. Because these participants are probably from this blah blah background, they might respond in this blah blah way on my test.
  2. a design – how are you going to set up your study (experiment or correlation)? How will you know if your hypothesis is proven or disproven? (30%)
    1. choose the design you would use
      1. You can only choose between an experiment or a correlation. Both
        research methods are discussed in your textbook. If you choose a
        different research method, you will earn a 0 on this portion of the
        paper.
      2. Explain the design to your reader (give a definition and explain how it works; use your own words)
      3. Describe how you would apply the design to your sample to do your study
        1. For example, for my study, I did a correlational study; a
          correlational study is used to blah blah blah; its purpose is to blah
          blah blah (I am not going to describe it, but I expect you to do it for your paper; use your textbook [but don’t plagiarize]).
        2. In my correlational study, I gave the women a survey on identity and
          a survey on traditionalism. Then I looked at whether there was
          relationship between the scores in traditionalism and identity.
      4. Explain how you will know if your hypothesis is correct or incorrect*
        1. If XYZ occurs, then my hypothesis is correct.
          1. A positive correlation tells me that blah blah blah
            1. If this occurs, that means the Chinese American women’s scores on my scales would show blah blah
          2. A negative correlation would show blah blah blah
            1. If this occurs, that means blah blah blah
        2. If ABC occurs, then my hypothesis is incorrect.
          1. A zero correlation tells me that blah blah blah
            1. If this occurs, this tells me that blah blah blah

*your hypothesis will be explained differently depending on what kind
of design you use (i.e., experiments and surveys will have different
guidelines)
