Assessment 4: Progression of Reading Ability in a Child Diagnosed with Autism
For this assessment, propose a study plan in which you will research the hypothesis for a research problem of your choosing, relevant to biological psychology. Format your paper using the following heading, as well as the APA Paper Template (DOCX):
*Introduce your topic.
*State the hypothesis.
*State the problem that underlies the topic for your research proposal.
*Evaluate the biological psychological concepts underlying your research proposal.
*Provide an effective literature review of other studies done on the same research problem. This section may include information obtained in you Theories and Ethics paper. Incorporate instructor feedback you received from the Literature Review assessment.
Importance or Implications to Biological Psychology:
*Discuss the importance of implications of this research problem to biological psychology.
*Discuss the research method and design chosen for your proposed study from the four identified in Chapter 4 of Brain and Behavior: An Introduction to Behavioral Neuroscience.
*Clarify a rationale for the research method chosen to be used in this study.
*State the hypothesis your study plan is designed to test and any question that will guide your research plan.
*Describe how the validity of the research will be ensured.
*Discuss the necessary criteria to ensure the study will be conducted safely and ethically.
*Summarize your study plan and rationale for the chosen method and design.
