Reading a Research Paper – GPSN 110 General Survey Of Psychology

Reading a research paper Who is/are the author(s) of the article? What year was this article published? What is the title of the article? Last Name, Initials., & Last Name, Initials. (Year). Article title. Journal Name, Volume number (Issue number), Page range. Locatelli, M. G. (2020). Play therapy treatment of pediatric medical trauma: A retrospective case study of a preschool child. International Journal of Play Therapy, Volume 29(1), Pg.33–42. What are the two to three main things you learned from the introduction? What is one of the articles cited in the introduction? (Refer to it by the authors and the year it was published.) What is the hypothesis? How many participants were in the study? Who were the participants (e.g., college students, infants, etc.)? What materials were used in the study? Did participants complete a survey, use a computer program, were they interviewed, etc.? Summarize what the participants did. What was/were the independent variable(s)? What was the dependent variable? How were the data analyzed (i.e., what statistical analysis was used)? Report the means and standard deviations for each group. Did the author(s) find a significant effect? What did you learn from the figure (graph) in the results section? Was the hypothesis supported? Were the results consistent with the previous literature discussed in the introduction? What can you conclude from this study? Did the author(s) make any suggestions for future investigation? If so, what suggestion was made? What did you think of the article? Was it an effective study? Do you accept the results? Why or why not? How many references were cited in the article? I do want to point out the use of the terms independent and dependent variables. Note that qualitative studies do not use IV’s or DV’s so if you are critiquing a qualitative study, you will have variables, but not labeled as IVs or DVs. The assumption with IVs and DV’s is that the study is assessing some sort of relationship and with qualitative studies that is not the intention. Additionally, there are quantitative studies that do not use IV or DV terms as well. Example: typically with correlational designs the terms predictor and criterion variable are used or simply “study variables.” Again, I just wanted to mention this so that you are aware that you may not have IV’s and DV’s and that is okay paper should be no less than four pages in length, using ONE-inch margins and a standard (12 point) font.  It should be typed, double-spaced, and free of grammatical and/or spellings errors.
