Assignment: Annotation of a Quantitative Research Article

  

Submit: Annotation of a Quantitative Research Article

This week, you will submit the annotation of a quantitative research article on a topic of your interest.

An annotation consists of three separate paragraphs that cover three respective components: summary, analysis, and application. These three components convey the relevance and value of the source. As such, an annotation demonstrates your critical thinking about, and authority on, the source. This week’s annotation is a precursor to the annotated bibliography assignment due in Week 10. 

An annotated bibliography is a document containing selected sources accompanied by a respective annotation of each source. In preparation for your own future research, an annotated bibliography provides a background for understanding a portion of the existing literature on a particular topic. It is also a useful first step in gathering sources in preparation for writing a subsequent literature review as part of a dissertation.

Please review the assignment instructions below and click on the underlined works for information about how to craft each component of an annotation.

It is recommended that you use the grading rubric as a self-evaluation tool before submitting your assignment.

By Day 7 Annotate one quantitative      research article from a peer-reviewed      journal on a topic of your interest. Provide the reference list entry for this article in       APA Style followed by a three-paragraph annotation that includes:  A summary An analysis An application as illustrated in this example

Format your annotation in Times New Roman, 12-point font, double-spaced. A separate References list page is not needed for this assignment. Submit       your annotation.

Assignment: Position Paper

 

Sometimes, during heated discussions and debates about social policy, the underlying reasons for the policy go unnoticed. Advocates and policymakers may become so committed to their perspectives and to winning the debates that they lose focus on the larger context surrounding an issue. The purpose of policy is to improve the lives and well-being of individuals and groups in our society. As you assume the role of a social work policymaker, consider the importance of keeping the needs and experiences of vulnerable populations at the forefront of your mind in your advocacy efforts. This can help to assure effective policy practice.

For this Assignment, you will analyze a state, federal, or global social welfare policy that affects an at-risk, marginalized, oppressed, underrepresented, or over looked group population. Finally, consider the impact of social policy from the perspective of the group you selected.
By Day 7

Assignment (5-7 double-spaced pages, APA format). In addition to a minimum of eight scholarly references, which may include electronic government documents and reputable websites, your paper should include:

A description of the current policy approach for addressing the social issue you selected

A description of the current policy goals for addressing the social issue you selected

A description of the population the current policy approach covers

An explanation of the funding levels for the current policy approach and whether they are sufficient to address the issue

An explanation of how this policy may affect at-risk, marginalized, underrepresented, overlooked, or oppressed populations. Identify a specific at-risk population.

An analysis of whether or not the policy meets the needs of the population groups most affected by the policy.

Recommendations for alternative policies that would address the gaps identified in the policy. Please be specific in recommendations.

Telling the Story

Hector is a 35-year-old Hispanic male. Hector was seriously injured   in an auto accident 5 months ago. He spent 4 months in the hospital.   One leg and hip suffered permanent damage. He will probably always   need a cane and walk with a limp. He also has limited mobility in his   right arm and shoulder and cannot lift anything heavy. 

Hector grew up in a family with a construction business. He has been   working in construction since high school. Social work at the rehab   hospital referred Hector to counseling because he is not adjusting   well to his injuries. He is very depressed and angry because he cannot   continue to work in his chosen occupation. Hector says, “What   use am I now? I am the man in the family. I should be strong. I need   to support the family. I don’t want my wife to work. I   don’t know what I am going to do to make a living.” 

Hector still experiences severe pain in his shoulder and his leg. He   spends a lot of time watching TV and drinking. At this point, he is   not looking for work. His family has reached out to him but he avoids   interaction with his siblings and his parents because they remind him   of what he no longer can do. He feels shame when he is around family   members because of his disability. His relationship with his wife is   tense because he is often angry and withdrawn.

You are meeting with Hector for the first time and want to get the story.

As we meet with a new client we develop some hypotheses to   explore, as well as listening to what the client says about himself. 

Write a 750-1,000-word paper addressing the following: What are some of primary issues that Hector is   addressing? What are some of Hector’s feelings? What are Hector’s behaviors and how are these impacting     his adjustment? How might Hector’s cultural heritage     be impacting his adjustment to his injury? What are some     beliefs that may be impacting Hector’s adjustment? How might Hector’s family background be impacting his   adjustment? What might be some issues that will need to be     addressed in counseling? What are the stages of change the     counselor will help Hector through? Provide a brief definition     of each stage. What steps can a counselor take to help     Hector explore his problems? Consider the following     counselor skills: eye contact, closed and open-ended questions,     paraphrasing and summarizing, reflection, body language, tone,     listening, empathy, genuineness, unconditional positive regard,     interpretation, tracking, reflecting emotion, active presence,     structuring sessions, encouragement, questioning and clarifying,     counselor self-awareness, tolerating intensity, validating,     challenging, multicultural awareness/acceptance, probing and     questioning, posture. Pick one skill and discuss how a counselor     should use this in their sessions with Hector.

Include at three scholarly references in your paper. At least two   resources should identify issues that need to be addressed when you   are working with someone who is being rehabilitated from a serious injury. 

Prepare this assignment according to the guidelines found in the APA   Style Guide, located in the Student Success Center. An abstract is not required.

Ethics of Mandated Treatment

 

You have been called in to consult on cases that may require mandated treatment. After reviewing the PSY699 The ethics of mandated treatment scenarios (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., choose two to discuss in your initial post. Begin your research with the required resources for this week. Using the specific situations presented in each of the scenarios you have chosen, conduct further research to help inform your recommendations for each individual. A minimum of one resource per scenario, beyond those already required for the assignment, must be included in your initial post.

In your post, construct clear and concise arguments using evidence-based psychological concepts and theories to present your recommendations as to whether or not treatment should be mandated for the individuals in each of the scenarios. As you write your recommendations, be certain to provide insights into the following questions. What are the ethical principles and implications raised by legally mandating clients into treatment?  What evidence exists regarding the effectiveness of treatment with and without coercion for this type of situation?  What would be the challenges in evaluating the effectiveness of mandated treatment?  How might mandated treatment impact your clinical decision making as the mental health professional assigned to these cases? What client factors might limit or augment the potential benefits of treatment if it were mandated?

Integrating concepts from your research and the required readings, offer insights across different content domains as to why you have reached these conclusions. Explain how you used the APA Ethical Code of Conduct to guide your decisions. Evaluate the generalizability of your specific research findings to the situations presented and provide a rationale as to why this research supports your recommendations.

PSYC 502 Intelligence Test Forum Student Responses

 A minimum of 250 words response per each. MUST list references used.

Response 1 (Cameron): I found this week’s focus on intelligence testing quite interesting, as this was the first time I had ever taken an IQ test online.  I took very different tests, and as such, there was quite a contrast in my experiences.  For example, the first test I took had a number of questions and took me just over 30 minutes to complete.  While the test was easy to use, I felt that there was not a lot of variety in the types of questions asked, as many of them were somewhat similar and numerically oriented, which required more math skills.  I hate math and it is a major area of weakness for me, so I did not care for this test much.  However, this test was not timed, which reduced my stress level a bit, and I felt more at ease in taking this test, even though some of the questions were difficult.  The second test I took was timed, which definitely increased my stress level and made it very hard to concentrate.  I felt nervous and rushed, which totally affected my performance.  

Moreover, while I felt this test included a better variety of items and was more organized, in that it was broken down into sections that focused on different abilities, it was somewhat more challenging than the first one, in my opinion.  Despite the fact that it was timed, I feel that the second test did a better job testing a broader range of cognitive skills, compared to the first one, and being that it was timed, it wasn’t excessively long.  However, I don’t think that either test is representative of what an intelligence test should be, because they each tested only some specific skills.  For example, I am a strong performer in the area of spelling, language, and grammar, but I felt that neither test addressed those areas at all.  Therefore, I do not feel that these tests appropriately represent my full range of abilities.  

When considering various theories of intelligence, I would say that Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligence probably best represents these tests, because his theory emphasized multiple areas of individual intelligence (Pal, Pal, & Tourani, 2004).  The test items measured various ability areas, ranged in difficulty, and required a number of tasks to be done at each level or in each section.  Overall however, I feel that online tests are very limited and are designed more for fun than anything else, and in order to measure IQ more effectively, a test should be reliable, valid, and administered by a professional in an appropriate setting.

Response 2 (Kraig): Carter (2010) stated IQ stands for Intelligence Quotient. IQ tests are given all over the world for a variety of reasons. These IQ tests access peoples performance of their intelligence through the aspects of a person’s makeup, personality, attitude, and intelligence (Carter, 2010). The two intelligence tests that I took were the thirty-minute test at https://psychologytoday.com and the thirty-minute test at http://www.funeducation.com. I honestly randomly selected the two tests which I chose to take. Both tests took approximately twenty minutes with a thirty-minute time limit. The tests were quite different from each other in many ways.   

The psychology today test was composed of fifty-seven questions and I was given thirty minutes to complete the test. The psychology today test was very easy to use because I basically clicked the answer and then the “next” button to go on to the next question. There was a great deal of brain teaser type questions that asked about patterns with shapes and numbers. The psychology today test states that is measures logical thinking, math skills, language abilities, spatial relations skills, knowledge retained, and the ability to solve novel problems (Psychology Today, 2018).  I believe the intelligence theory this test would portray would be Information Processing Theory due to its goal of measuring various subsets of intelligence.

     The Fun Education test was forty-three questions and I was given thirty minutes to complete the test. This test required less questions to be answered in the same amount of time as the psychology today test.  The test stated it would measure cognitive performance, which would evaluate word analysis and spatial reasoning (Fun Education, 2018). I expected the Fun Education test would be easier than the psychology today test, however, I was surprised to find the test was harder. I felt the test would have been easier mainly because of the word “fun” in the title.  The format of the test was similar to the Psychology today test, but after clicking an answer it went immediately to the next question without clicking the next button. This caused some problem because I clicked the wrong answer a few times and was not given time to contemplate the answer before I went to the next question. There were multiple questions that I was unsure of so I had to click any answer or I don’t know. I believe the Fun Education test was based on the Information was also based on the Information Processing Theory because of its similarity to the psychology today test.

     There are many benefits and limitations to online testing. Even though on-line testing can be easier and more widely administered, I think it is much less accurate that testing where there is a proctor present in the classroom.  When taking a test on-line, it is easy for the test taker to cheat by using online sources to answer the questions.  Throughout the test, I got to the mental stage of not wanting to finish the test because the questions were difficult and formatted differently than any other test. When taking a traditional test, I know how many more questions I have until I would be done, but the Fun Education test I was not completely sure on how much longer I had. On the Fun Education test, I was unable to go back once I clicked the answer. When taking a traditional test, I would have the ability to correct an answer if I wrote it down wrong initially. Honestly, both IQ tests made my brain hurt and made me question every answer I completed. The tests are quite challenging, but they are supposed to be. I look forward to seeing what each student thought about this weeks IQ testing.

Respectfully Submitted,

Kraig

Response 3 (Remington): After taking the two given IQ tests, I became more aware of other variables that can affect test scores and thus the measurement of my cognitive power. First, I took the myidtested.com IQ test and received my score. During this test I was somewhat distracted. My brother was texting me about plans for the evening. My mother-in-law walked in the door with Chic-Fila and I was also monitoring my sleeping toddler on the baby monitor. 

The second test was taken after a break and eating lunch. After eating my chicken sandwich and deciding on social plans with my sibling, I took the second IQ test. My performance on the second IQ test slightly improved compared to the first one. 

There are an innumerable amount of variables that can be at play when performing such cognitive tasks including: fatigue, sleep, hunger, motivation, rewards, punishment, academic grades, genes, environment, experience, focus capacity, maturity, purpose etc. 

Some variables that should be taken into consideration are the fact that I have two children under the age of two years old. I know my brain has not been performing at full capacity over the course of the week. Sleep has been drastically reduced and energy has been expended on entertaining my toddler. Taking both of these IQ tests have to be prioritized within my current life schedule. My motivation to take both of the lengthy tests was not high. I believe I would be more motivated to take the tests if I knew my academic grades were going to be dictated by these two tests. Reward and punishment concerning taking both of these IQ tests could also be variables. My overall state during the tests I would describe as distracted. 

Other variables to consider are genetics. I would say both of my parents are of average intelligence. Both of my parents are involved in professions in which they have passion for. I believe that purpose and passion for conducting a task can increase or decrease performance. In addition to genetics, environmental factors also play a critical role. The current environment that I am occupying is a busy one. This will undoubtedly affect test performance. 

Still, others have argued that socioeconomics within US history have also played a role in IQ test scores (Castles, 2012). The economic classes that have access to quality educational systems may be at an advantage compared to lower economic classes. Specifically, within US history, minorities may be further discriminated against while seeking employment or admission to schools if these IQ tests are racially or socioeconomically insensitive.
