Next you will then create a Word document 2 to 3-page document. (You may have one – two pages on content) – This is a study aide so it should include the who, when etc. Bullet points or short concise statements for learning is what I am looking for; everything you would need to know about this theory.
The assignment should be submitted in APA format to include at least 2 scholarly references. A methods section should give detailed information about how you will conduct your proposed experiment, but should not include options or predictions of the outcome. By reading your methods section, another researcher should be able to have all the information necessary to conduct your experiment. This includes information about participants/subjects, where the data is collected, how the data is collected, information and references for any questionnaires used, and information for any equipment being used. This section is procedural, and should not include any information about what you predict will happen or any results. It is straightforward and specific. Use complete sentences and do not use bullet-point lists.
