Assignment 3: Ethics in Research
In this course, you will complete two RAs that make up 50% of your total class grade. In RA 1, you will write a reaction paper to evaluate the research methodologies used in a particular study.
In RA 2, you will use what you have learned about research questions and literature reviews to write a well-structured research question on a human services topic that interests you, in addition to writing a literature review on this topic.
As you are working through this course, one aspect of both analyzing a study and considering the development of your own study is being able to apply the ethical standards of research as set for by the APA. In addition to formulating your plan for completing your two assignments, you will also apply what you learned from the article by Nagy (2011) to a research study of your choice.
