Reliability Practicum in Google Classroom

Reliability Practicum

Since all of you will be taking the SAT or PSAT in the next six weeks, I thought this exercise was appropriate. You are going to calculate some reliability statistics by taking some practice SAT exams. I originally planned for this to be due on the 18th, but I want to give you a couple of week-ends to complete it. Overall, this assignment will take about 14 hours spread out over four to five days and you will need two four-hour blocks of time to take the tests under "testing conditions." I know you're thrilled. I can feel the excitement. I'm attaching the practicum instructions with an example of how I want the assignment configured and some practice tests. Please e-mail me if you have any questions.

Attached is the Critical Research Review assignment which details how points are distributed, and an example.

Due:

15 Peer-Reviewed Research Articles in Google Classroom

15 Peer-Reviewed Research Articles

As part of the literature review you will write for your research project, you will need 15 peer-reviewed articles. You can find peer-reviewed articles in academic journals. Peer-reviewed journal articles have been sent out to experts in the field of inquiry who review the experiment for methodology, statistical analysis, and communication of the results. As I have mentioned before, you literature review sets the context for your research project--what has been done in the past, why is it a concern now or current relevance, and what is the potential future impact. The other aspect peer-reviewed literature will help you with is operationalizing your variables. Use definitions that are defined by and widely used by the experts.

Set-up this assignment as your Reference page in APA style. For now, I just need your references. Use the attached hand-out as a guide for constructing your references. I am also attaching an example of a paper written in APA style. Please refer to the references at the end of the paper. This is how I would like your 15 resources to be constructed and submitted.

Also, you can use the formatting in Word (References) or an application like Easy Bib, but be careful because if you copy and paste, those programs will only put the elements of the reference in the correct order. They will not change upper case to lower case, etc.

Due:

Final Project Proposal in Google Classroom

Tell you me what your project will be, why it is important, and how you will collect data.

What are the ethical issues? in Google Classroom

What are the ethical issues?

After you have watched the documentary, "Eye of the Storm," and read the article on how Germany plans to study the transmission of the corona virus, post a Flipgrid video telling me what you think the ethical issues are, if any. Start with the documentary. You have 3 minutes.

Due:

Key Terms in Google Classroom

Key Terms

Attached are key terms from Chapters 1 and 2. As I mentioned this morning, you can complete this assignment any way you see fit. The point is to understand these terms so we have a common language and understanding for talking about research. There will be an assessment due on Friday, August 14. I will post the assessment on Wednesday, August 12. You may work on it individually, with another classmate, or in groups.

Watch everyone's videos and be prepared to discuss to merits and issues of each topic tomorrow.

Due:

Three Potential Research Topics in Google Classroom

Three Potential Research Topics

Create a 60-second video pitching three potential ideas for investigation this year. As the goal of this class is to develop and conduct research for a professional audience, your research project must include data collection. This data can be quantitative or qualitative (narrative). As you pitch your idea, include how you propose to collect data. I will compile your responses in a mixtape and we will discuss the idea you think is the most viable on Friday, the 14th.
