Using my research proposal sections that I have completed and uploaded thus far:
You will include at least three APA Style appendices (i.e., one for your demographic questions, one for your consent form, and one for your debriefing form). Appendices are useful for providing your reader with copies of your materials (i.e., what participants would be presented with). You will also be adding some details to the method section and ensuring that the information provided across the different sections of your proposal is consistent.
You will add at least three Level 3 sections under the “Method, Design, and Procedure” section and at least three appendices following the references. The RESEARCH PROPOSAL should include at least three appendices: one for your consent form, one for your demographic questions, and one for your debriefing form. The addition of other appendices depends on the types of methods that you have proposed. Appendices should be presented in the order they are cited in the body of your document. Your first appendix will likely be a copy of your informed consent, and your last appendix will be a copy of your debriefing.
CONSENT FORM
This appendix should provide your reader with the consent form you would present to your participants. If you are proposing an in-person study, providing participants with a hard copy of your consent form and having them sign and date the form is a common procedure. If you are proposing an online study, providing participants with the consent form online and having them select from two options (e.g., “I consent” versus “I do not consent”) is a common procedure. If your population of interest includes people below the age of 18, you will need to state that informed consent from a parent or legal guardian and how assent would be obtained if the children are old enough.
Make sure to include the following pieces of information in your consent form (Cozby & Bates, 2020, p. 53):
The purpose of the research
Procedures that will be used, including time involved (remember that you do not need to tell participants precisely what is being studied)
Risks and benefits
Any compensation
Confidentiality
Assurance of voluntary participation and permission to withdraw
Contact information for questions
In addition to the information listed above, the IRB at UL Lafayette also requires the following:
Introduce yourself and your department at the beginning of the consent form
Provide your faculty advisor’s name and contact information
When participation could cause emotional trauma, resources for participants can and should be listed
All consent forms must include these statements (or a version with language appropriate for the participant reading level)
STEP 4: Add an appendix for each of your variables of interest.
Appendices for Your Variables of Interest
If you are proposing to manipulate a variable, provide your reader with the stimuli that would be presented to participants in each level/condition/group. If the differences across each level/condition/group are more closely tied to differences in the environment and/or are explained fully in the Level 3 section tied to this variable, then provide an accurate experimental design diagram (see the attached example provided on page 153 in Cozby & Bates, 2020).
If you propose to measure a variable using systematic observation, Provide your reader with the coding system you would give to your independent raters (see the example provided on page 118 in Cozby & Bates, 2020). If you propose using a coding system that can be easily found on the internet, provide a link to the source followed by a copy of the coding system.
If you are proposing to measure a variable using survey/questionnaire/assessment methods, provide your reader with the specific instructions, items, and response options associated with the survey/questionnaire/assessment you are proposing to present to participants. If you propose using a survey/questionnaire/assessment that can be easily found on the internet, provide a link to the source followed by a copy of the survey/questionnaire/assessment instructions, items, and response options.
STEP 5: Add a “Demographic Questions” appendix.
Demographic Questions
This appendix should provide your reader with the demographic questions you would ask participants so that you could determine the extent to which your sample is representative of your population of interest. At the very least, researchers usually ask their participants for their age, gender, and ethnicity. If any of these variables is a variable of interest in your study, you do not need to include it as a demographic question. Make sure that your questions respect people’s rights and dignity.
Development Process (Before the Due Date)
STEP 6: Add a “Debriefing Form” appendix.
Debriefing Form
This appendix should provide your reader with information about how you would debrief your participants. If you have had the opportunity to participate in a psychological study, consider how you were debriefed. If you propose an in-person study, providing participants with a hard copy of your debriefing form and asking if they have any questions is a common procedure. If you are proposing an online study, providing participants with the debriefing form online and having them acknowledge that they have read the form is a common procedure. Debriefing forms for your proposal must be written in clear, plain language and include a brief background for the research, citations to relevant literature, the research question, the variables of interest, hypotheses and/or predictions, and references. The entire document should not exceed a page in length.
STEP 7: Add three Level 3 sections.
These three Level 3 sections go under your Level 2 “Design, Materials, and Procedure” section. You will be adding a “Demographic Questions” section, an “Informed Consent” section, and a “Debriefing” section. Remember to write these subsections in the future tense. The type of information that goes in each subsection is described below.
Informed Consent [This will likely be your first Level 3 section.]
This section should provide your reader with information about how you would obtain informed consent from your participants. If you have had the opportunity to serve as a participant in a psychological study, consider how informed consent was obtained. If you are proposing an in-person study, providing participants with a hard copy of your consent form and having them sign and date the form is a common procedure. If you are proposing an online study, providing participants with the consent form online and having them select from two options (e.g., “I consent” versus “I do not consent”) is a common procedure. If your population of interest includes people below the age of 18, you will need to state that informed consent from a parent or legal guardian and how assent would be obtained if the children are old enough.
Demographic Questions [This will likely be your second-to-last Level 3 section.]
This section should provide your reader with a list of the demographic variables that you created questions for in your demographic questions appendix.
Debriefing [This will be your last Level 3 section.]
This section should provide your reader with information about how you would debrief your participants. If you have had the opportunity to serve as a participant in a psychological study, consider how you were debriefed. If you are proposing an in-person study, providing participants with a hard copy of your debriefing form and having them sign and date the form is a common procedure. If you are proposing an online study, providing participants with the debriefing form online and having them acknowledge that they have read the form is a common procedure.
STEP 8: Add timing information to your “Design, Materials, and Procedure” section.
Revisit your “Design, Materials, and Procedure” overview, and briefly describe how participants would experience each step in your procedure. Even if you are proposing a nonexperimental study, it is recommended that you describe how you would use counterbalancing procedures to negate any potential order effects. In this same section, you will also need to provide your reader with an estimate of how long it would take participants to complete the study.
I have estimated about three pages to be added to my research proposal depending on the procedures, materials, and design you decide to go with. Remember that it is required to include all necessary steps for each section. I have included files for the appendices template, a rubric, and examples and samples of the consent, debriefing, and explanations.
APPENDICES SHOULD BE PRESENTED IN THE ORDER THEY ARE CITED IN THE BODY OF YOUR DOCUMENT. THIS MEANS THAT YOUR FIRST APPENDIX WILL LIKELY BE A COPY OF YOUR INFORMED CONSENT AND THAT YOUR LAST APPENDIX WILL BE A COPY OF YOUR DEBRIEFING.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Thank you.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
