Alternative Assignment

If you are not able or do not wish to participate in the research study to which you are assigned, you may complete the alternative assignment, which is a series of questions about a research article. To complete the alternative assignment, chose ONE of the a peer-reviewed journal articles below and then complete the alternative assignment document.

To start, download the alternative assignment document and save the document to your computer.  Failure to do so could result in the loss of your work.  Then, read ONE of the three articles.  Once you have read the research article, complete the alternative assignment document.  The purpose of the assignment is to demonstrate that you have read and understand the research article.  At the top of the assignment, include your name and e-mail address and the citation information of the article. Then answer ALL of the questions using the journal article you chose in the space provided. Make sure that your answers are complete, and use your own words in describing the article, limiting the use of direct quotes.  Any assignment that is entirely or partly copied word-for-word from a research article (or from another student) will not receive credit. This is plagiarism, which is a very serious academic offense. The researcher will check to make sure that your work is original.

Assignments are due via email to the researcher you are assigned to by 11:59 p.m. April 9.
