• A summary (500-650 words) of the research in which you briefly describe the hypotheses, methodology, and basic findings.
  • A critique and discussion (250-350 words) of the significance of the research findings. This is a chance for you to “show off” your psychology skills by adding personal insight and thoughts about the research that was presented. For instance, one might discuss how the research might apply in another situation or context, discuss how the research helped them understand an event that happened in their own lives, or critique the study and its conclusions by providing arguments in support or against the research.
  • Your paper MUST be a total of at least 750 words total (not including the header and citations). If your paper is less than this 750 words, you will NOT receive credit. No exceptions.
