R Markdown Assignment

The goal for this week is for you to integrate, improve, and expand upon all of the assignment components you have completed in the previous weeks to generate a written draft report of your proposed experiment.

Learning Objectives:

  • apply what you have learned in this course (and others) about research methods, statistics, R, and R Markdown, in a realistic task
  • design and create a novel research proposal as a capstone project to demonstrate that you are ready to move on to the next stage in your academic research career: lab-based research in psychology or neuroscience.

Requirements: Create a written, reproducible research proposal in R Markdown. Your report must include the following components: abstract, introduction, hypothesis (including predicted results described both verbally and in a graph), methods (with subsections appropriate to your design), clear statement of your design, expected results (with simulated data and proposed method of analysis), discussion of limitations of your proposed study, references, and any figures, tables, or appendices required for your report. Figure and tables can be either embedded inline in the report, or included separately at the end of the report. Any R code included in the report should be appropriately commented (using this syntax: <!– your comment here –>) so that the reader can understand the purpose of the code.

APA Style: It is important that your report generally conform to APA style. We have not covered how to complete all aspects of APA style in R Markdown, and to do so would be beyond the scope of this course. I do want you to include the following: appropriate headings and subheadings, appropriate reporting of statistical analyses and results, and appropriate reference format. You do not have to worry about anything having to do with spacing (e.g., don’t worry about having your title page appear on a separate page, or your references having a hanging indent). You can see a clear example of current APA style here (Links to an external site.). Those that are interested can learn more about APA style in R Markdown here (Links to an external site.) (but this is not required for this course).

Grading Rubric: A grading rubric for this assignment can be found here . It is highly recommended that you review this rubric *before* beginning to write your assignment.

Submission Format: Submit your report on Quercus as a .Rmd file, along with any data files you need to generate graphs or analyses for your report. If you have more than one file, put the files in a .zip file.
