The Instructions: The Hypothetical Experiment 6 The Instructions: The Hypothetical Experiment Name College Abstract The purpose of this paper is to provide students with instructions for writing and designing a hypothetical research experiment. Students will use the scientific method. A good way to generate an experiment is to start by identifying a problem, conceptualizing the problem, and then identify a possible solution for overcoming the problem. Next, you will design a study to test the effectiveness of the potential solution. No data will be collected, as you will not be conducting your experiment. The assignment is only intended to give students practice in designing experiments. (For your paper you need to create an abstract. An abstract is a short summary of the purpose of your paper. It does not need to be very long, approximately 5 to7 lines. The paragraph above represents a sample abstract. In the abstract be sure and state your hypothesis by using the words – My hypothesis is-. Also, state your hypothesis using the words if and then. For example: If you use a blue pencil to write out your extra credit and take a test then the color of the pencil will increase your ability to remember the information. The “if’ part of the sentence is the independent variable the “then” part of the sentence is the dependent variable. If you can not state your hypothesis in an “if then statement” then something is probably wrong with your experiment design.) The Instructions: The Hypothetical Experiment Introduction: In this section, labeled introduction, state the topic of your paper and the hypothesis. Also, in this section state any studies that could support your theory. Many writers give a broad overview of the method to be used in the introduction. Be sure and restate your hypothesis exactly as you stated it in the abstract, using the words-My hypothesis is. Method Participants List the number of participants. Basically, you are describing who the people are that are going to participate in the study. For example, in a study that examines the effect of chocolate on the memory recall of Schizophrenics; your participants would be schizophrenics. Sixty subjects are the smallest number of participants that can be used safely in a research experiment, thirty in the control group and thirty in the experimental group. If you want robust results, one hundred participants are best, fifty per group. Apparatus Apparatus or materials used during data collections are described in this section. Everything from the pencil to the paper exam needs to be put in this section. Procedure In this section write the step-by-step details of what will occur in the experiment. It includes these details, as stated in Thais and Sanford (2000): *Important aspects of the instructions given to Participants. *How participants were assigned to the conditions. *The experimental design used. (This involves statistics and you will have none so don’t worry about the experimental design.) *Step-by-step fashion, what the participants did. Also, in this section you need to state the independent variable and the dependent variable. Use the words –the independent variable is- or the dependent variable is-. Do not forget to label and identify who represents your control group and who represents your experimental group. Results The results section of a paper contains the group data generated by your research. Any statistics that you have will go in this section. There will be no results section because this experiment will not be conducted. Discussion The discussion section is the place where the data is interpreted. Any opinions, observations, philosophies or speculations are addressed in this section. Because there are not results, speculation as to the potential results, should the study be conducted, be written in this section. The last page of your experiment should include any references cited in your experimental design paper. If you cite another’s work then reference it. References Thais, C. & Sanford, J. F.
