Benchmark Information

This benchmark assignment assesses the following programmatic competency:

BS Psychology

3.7: Explain how social, political, economic, and cultural information is used ethically and legally in the discipline of psychology.

4. Pop psychology tests are a common form of entertainment online. Find a personality or relationship quiz (try the relationship tests on the Mars Venus website, located in Topic 4 resources or any personality tests through pop culture websites).

-These pop psychology tests are not considered scholarly and are not peer-reviewed.

-Choose one of these pop psychology tests and explain what adjustments you would make to create reliability and validity. How you would test its reliability and validity as is, and how does a scholarly test that stands to test-retesting compare?

-You might frame your comparison in this form: “If this pop psychology scale were valid, it would be expected that it correlated with . . .” or “If this scale were reliable, it would be expected…”

5. During a recent U.S. election, the news media interviewed a group of women in your state. Although opinion polls strongly supported Party A’s candidate, these women were still optimistic that their own side – Party B – would win. One woman said, “I don’t think those polls are very good—after all, they’ve never called me. Have they called any of you ladies?” Is this woman’s critique of polling techniques appropriate? Why or why not?

6. This assignment addresses the most fundamental goal of this class—becoming a better consumer of information. 

You will find media coverage of a psychological research topic and determine how well it represents the empirical study it describes. 

The popular source you choose must include a psychological claim that you can discuss in some detail. You will find examples of psychological claims in advertising, magazines, the newspaper, or the Internet (Buzzfeed, Forbes, SimplyPsychology).

You will write an APA paper with the following sections. Each section should be four to eight sentences:

Section 1: Write a brief introduction of the chosen psychological research topic and describe the importance of critiquing popular media coverage of research studies.

Section 2: Summarize the media article. Include the claim being made by the author(s) of the media. (e.g., There is a relationship between social media use and body image, Individuals who own pets are happier)

Section 3: Summarize the empirical article. Include the claim being made by the author(s) of the empirical study (this may or may not be the same as the claim in the media article).

Section 4: Analyze how well the media article represents the research study and choose at least two of the following topics to analyze:

· Variables focused on by the researcher (i.e., were they the same as those described in the media article?)

· The main claims of the researcher (What are they? Are they the same as what is described in the media article?)

· Type of claims made by the researcher (frequency, association, causal)

· Results of the research study (Did the media article accurately represent the results of the study?)

· Sample/Population (Are the people they used in the experiment different than the people the media claim is describing?)
