For this assignment you are required to answer four short essay questions on general design
and methodological issues. This assignment is to not be plagiarised in any way, shape or form.
Under no circumstances should any single answer be more than
500 words long (approximately one standard A4 page), and you must provide a word count
at the end of each answer. Some questions may require a longer answer than others, and
don’t feel as though you have to write 500 words for each answer—that is the absolute
maximum. Please answer the questions in full text form rather than by using bullet points
and other summarising methods. All reference material must be cited and referenced in
correct APA style. Feel free to cite websites, but if you do so, reference and cite them
correctly. There needs to be 8-12 references used.
1. “Science is the best way to answer questions, explain causal relationships in nature,
and test the effectiveness of treatments.” Do you agree with this statement? Take a
position and defend it.
2. What is the best design for an intervention study? Describe a hypothetical
intervention study and outline how you would design such a study. Make sure that
you describe all of the essential features of the design that you choose, and make
sure that you point out why each of those features is necessary for your design.
3. “There is more likely to be a causal relationship between the variables investigated
in a quasi-experimental design than a correlational design”. Yes? No? Maybe?
Demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of these designs in answering this
question. Examples of your own devising will help.
4. “When—if ever—is deception acceptable in psychological research? Describe the
ethical principles that support your position. Give an example of the use of
deception in psychological research (either real or fabricated) to illustrate your
answer and support your view.”
