Quick Review from PSYC 30
  • Types of Variables
  • Independent Manipulated by experimenter
  • Dependent Participants response
  • Operational Definition of a Variable
  • The definition of a variable in terms of the
    actual procedure used by the researcher to
    measure and/or manipulate it.

Short Assignment 1
  • Due next Wednesday, August January 17th at the
    beginning of lab.
  • One page typed, double spaced
  • From the course website
  • Write a research problem statement on a topic
    of your own choosing. Begin with a broad
    statement of a topic in psychology that interests
    you, and refine the statement into a research
    question that might reasonably lead to a study
    that could be completed in one or two weeks. You
    will probably find it easier to begin with a
    topic that you have studied in other psychology
    courses. Finally, list the variables that are
    involved in your proposal, indicate what kind of
    variable each one is, and suggest how each might
    be given an operational definition.
