WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT for Unit 11 is to write a eulogy, no longer than 2-3 minutes if actually presented, for a deceased person or about someone who is still alive (what you would you say). Write a possible “manuscript” that might have been transcribed from what you would have said. The same principles–creative intro, support, and conclusion, transitions—apply. Do not record the speech nor provide an outline. Here, simply upload and copy and paste the manuscript, written word-for-word.

1200 WORDS

Each student will be required to complete a 1200-word APA Style research paper worth 15% of your class grade. You must include a separate proper title page at the top of your submission and a separate properly formatted source page. The project should have at least 1200 words of text not counting the title and reference pages. Students will be required to use (5) five scholarly references and two of these references must be peer-reviewed journal articles from the APUS online library databases. Please note that Wikipedia, dictionaries, encyclopedias, endnotes, ehow, etc. are not scholarly resources. If in doubt about your source, please ask your instructor before using. The paper is due by Sunday of week 7 and is worth 15% of your class grade. When you submit your paper into the “assignment” area as a word doc only it is processed by Turnitin for plagiarism detection.

Students are required to follow APA Style guidelines.

The class instructor will read and grade your papers with professor comments for improvement as needed. The course will be using the Criminal Justice Writing Rubric to grade the Term Project. The rubric is in the lessons, resources, and attached to this assignment. Please make sure that you are using the writing rubric as a checklist as you work on the Term Project.

There is no special requirement on the content. Discussing case laws and articles associated with your paper is acceptable. You do not have to notify the instructor of your choice. Your research paper must be formatted in the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association Sixth Edition (APA style). You can find help with APA Style guidelines within the Do not copy large sections of text verbatim, cited or uncited, from the Web or your paper will be severely penalized. You must cite within the paper per APA standards. Papers submitted to previous classes or other universities are not permitted.

The class instructor is looking for critical thinking and demonstrating that you have a grasp of the criminal justice material you are researching. Do not just regurgitate information but analyze the articles, journals, and scholarly literature you use to support your work.

Do not include quotes in your work. The course instructor wants to see your critical thinking skills on display and not a string of quotes written by published authors. Your analysis is what is needed for a successful paper. You will lose points for using quotes so stay away from quotes in this analytical assignment.

At this level in your educational journey students should have solid substance and proper academic formatting in your college level writing assignments. The course instructor will be grading on both, so make sure you turn in your best work.

Do not wait to the last minute to research, write, format, and edit. Proper time management is required to turn in a quality paper that highlights your criminal justice writing. This is a major assignment so follow the instructions carefully. Good luck!

Part 1

Jane, a military psychologist, wants to examine two types of treatments for depression in a group of military personnel who have suffered the loss of their legs. She has only 20 men to work with.

What would be the best research design for the study and why?

What are some issues that Jane needs to consider before starting the study?

What is a longitudinal study? What are the benefits and challenges associated with a longitudinal study?

Part 2

Hector is a graduate student hoping to conduct research with statistically significant results. He is using a survey to investigate the ways in which medical students manage stress. He thinks they consume coffee, eat, and watch television. He wants to control for demand characteristics, and does not want his bias to influence his results. Answer the following questions regarding the approach he should take:

Is it ethical for Hector to use deceit in order to control for demand characteristics? Why or why not? Does it matter whether or not the documentation that his University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved addressed the use of deceit? Why or why not?

What are three strategies Hector can use to identify and eliminate biases in his survey?

Do you think Hector’s body language or clothing can convey biases? Why or why not?

Hector is planning to recruit subjects and administer his survey in the Student Center (where students gather to converse, eat, and study) at his University. Is this a good way to control for demand characteristics? Why or why not?

The participants in Hector’s research are of different genders, ages, races, ethnicities, and religions. However all of them are current medical students. Is it appropriate for him to make a generalization based on the results of his research? Explain your reasoning.

Evaluating Significance of Findings

Part of your task as a scholar-practitioner is to act as a critical consumer of research and ask informed questions of published material. Sometimes, claims are made that do not match the results of the analysis. Unfortunately, this is why statistics is sometimes unfairly associated with telling lies. These misalignments might not be solely attributable to statistical nonsense, but also “user error.” One of the greatest areas of user error is within the practice of hypothesis testing and interpreting statistical significance. As you continue to consume research, be sure and read everything with a critical eye and call out statements that do not match the results. For this Assignment, you will examine statistical significance and meaningfulness based on sample statements.

Review the  Scenarios found in this week’s Learning Resources and select two of the four scenarios for this Assignment (see attachments)

Critically evaluate the two scenarios you selected based upon the following points:

·         Critically evaluate the sample size.

·         Critically evaluate the statements for meaningfulness.

·         Critically evaluate the statements for statistical significance.

·         Based on your evaluation, provide an explanation of the implications for social change.

Use proper APA format and citations, and referencing.


Quantitative Ethical Considerations


  •  Discussion Participation Scoring Guide.

While new designs are being developed and refined, you should understand that a basic set of quantitative research designs includes true experiment, quasi-experiment, single-subject correlational, and survey.

  • Describe the quantitative design would most effectively address your research question.
  • Provide a 250–300 word write-up of a possible quantitative design.
  • Describe the ethical considerations would you have in obtaining a sample, thinking about the need for anonymity, confidentiality, and preventing a conflict of interest.

Note: You may choose a quantitative or qualitative design for your final research proposal. A draft of your research design and data collection procedures is due next week after you have had the chance to more comprehensively explore qualitative research designs.

Sociology Paper

Foucault writes in The Introduction to the History of Sexuality (p.69),

 “Let us put forward a general working hypothesis.  The society that emerged in the nineteenth century—bourgeois, capitalist, or industrial society, call it what you will—did not confront sex with a fundamental refusal of recognition.  On the contrary, it put into operation an entire machinery for producing true discourses concerning it.  Not only did it speak of sex and compel every one to do so; it also set out to formulate the uniform truth of sex.  Thus sex gradually became an object of great suspicion; the general and disquieting meaning that pervades our conduct and our existence, in spite of ourselves; the point of weakness where evil portents reach through to us; the fragment of darkness that we each carry within us: a general signification, a universal secret, an omnipresent cause, a fear that never ends.”

The goal of this essay is to show your understanding of Foucault’s notions of discourses, power and surveillance and the way these have shaped society’s views and experiences of sex.

To achieve this goal, you need to explain the passage above relating it to Foucault’s notions of:

1) Discourse and the exercise of disciplinary power

2) The role that the many discourses concerning sex play in creating a more disciplined population, greater surveillance, and more control. 

You need to explain in your own words and provide examples from the text and support your explanation.  

 (I attached text)

Note: Foucault uses the term “true discourses” and a “uniform truth of sex” to assert that knowledge is a form of power, and discourses are products of a machinery to exert disciplinary control over a population. For Foucault, there is no truth about sex or such a thing as a true discourse; rather, each is a vehicle of social control, offered at a given time as if they are true.
