Do chapter 2. 5 pages. Due in 24 hours.
For this assessment, you will submit the current draft of your literature review for feedback and grading.
Do not organize the paper by referencing each article in order one by one. Your task is to synthesize conceptual information pertinent to the research question; this is the information that you extract from the articles selected and thematically review and summarize.
Plan to identify articles and research that:
- Describe an area of research.
- Describe the area of research chosen and justify the choice.
- Summarize sources applicable to the theoretical background of the chosen topic.
- Provide information about theoretical underpinnings such as empirical or behavioral or constructivist and humanistic orientations of the literature reviewed.
- Summarize sources applicable to the history of the chosen topic.
- Shed light on the historical context and dominant themes in the evolution of the topic; connect common themes and discuss counter opinions.
- Summarize sources applicable to best practices for engaging in research.
- Describe data collection strategies, research procedures, and approaches for conducting and reporting research.
- Summarize sources that add significance and relevance to the knowledge base of psychology.
- Indicate how the chosen sources help investigators identify topics that are well understood and other topics that represent gaps in the knowledge base and the need for further study.
- Create a scenario that illustrates the need for new research.
- Identify practices and research guidelines that address respect for individual differences and diversity.
- Address individual variation and diversity within and across groups.
- Organize and summarize sources thematically.
Your task is to present current considerations important to investigators and to indicate ramifications for stakeholders that rely on the current knowledge base. Use illustrative examples to explain and highlight key concepts. Good reviewers share with their audience evidence-based assessments of the current state of knowledge.
This assessment is one component of the integrative project. It is expected that you will continue to refine this literature review before submitting the final project.
