Are you using a survey methodology


Are you using a survey methodology

Are you using a survey methodology

Summaries 3 sources that I will provide, which could be a page and a half long. Then write a detailed 2-3 page Method based on the three sources. (this is a section of a proposal) This needs to have a scale.

Online for the method:

  1. Method: Explain how you are going to do the project. Include the following sections
    1. Participants and procedure: Who are the (expected) participants? How many? Are they part of a special population? (In-patient, residential, part of an alternative school, victims of the WTC attack, carrying a diagnosis of X). How will they be recruited? Are you using a survey methodology? In-person interviewing? If you are proposing an experiment (e.g., randomized clinical intervention), you must describe the procedures (e.g., manipulation, etc.) in detail (this can be separated out into a separate section)
    2. Measures: List your measures with an adequate description including: (1) the source, (2) what it is purported to assess, (3) example items and response scale, (4) evidence of reliability and validity.


You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
