As you saw from the lab PowerPoint slides last week, you will be doing a research study looking at the “Primacy Effect” for your first paper. For this week’s discussion, I want you to discuss with your group what you think this study is about. What is the hypothesis? What theory does it come from? What do you predict will happen (do you expect something different than the hypothesis in the researcher instructions? If so, what and why?)? Do you think this is a good, testable hypothesis? Where do you think the idea came from (systematic source, serendipity, everyday occurrence, non-systematic sources etc.?). Finally, do you see any ethical problems with this study? If so, how should you deal with those problems? With your discussion group, assess your project. I also want you to note one thing different you would do if you had the chance to design a similar study on your own (Hint: You’ll get the chance to build a follow-up study to this Primacy Effect study in a few weeks, so think about what you would do different right now and you may get the chance to follow through with that new study!).
