Write My Term Paper-Research Method
Imagine you are conducting a study concerning terrorism. Your main research question is whether media reporting impacts a person’s fear of a terrorist attack. Data collection will be based on a survey you have created. The treatment for this study will be a “fake” media story concerning a recent terrorist attack. You are to use an experimental design for this study.
Describe (in words) how you would carry out the above described study with a group of 30 people. Imagine also that you only had access to a small office on UTA’s campus in order to perform the study. (Things to think about: will you use a pretest, a post-test, how will you assign people to different groups, what is the “placebo” for your control group and how will the “treatment” be applied?)
