Creative ideas on the following slides will apply to some results and not others Compare Similarities to previous research findings Differences between this and other research

Please interpret the SPSS results (table and graphs) and write the discussion part of the paper.Hypothesis Supported
– Assess results of main hypothesis
– Assess results related to main research question
Discuss all results
But discuss each result in a way that makes sense for that result
Creative ideas on the following slides will apply to some results and not others
Compare
Similarities to previous research findings
Differences between this and other research
How results relate to theory or theories mentioned in introduction section
Alternative explanations for these results
Any negative results
Implications and Applications
– Theoretical
– Should be logically related to introduction sections
Practical
Clinical practice
Education
Policy
Child-rearing
Business practices
This is key to your paper, what can be done to know? What to do, how can it impact the world, your job,
Future research
Suggest the next logical step
Given the theoretical context or application
Given the current result
Limitations
-Generalizability
To other groups
To other situations
Effect size may not be large
Correlation rather than causation
Self-report
Unavoidable confounds
Choice of design where more than one reasonable choice exists.

But not small sample
Poor design
Lack of experimental control where have been possible
Or anything else a good researcher would plan to avoid

Order of ideas
All of the above can be mixed and matched
End on a high note, a take-home message, rather than on a limitation
