INSTRUCTIONS: READ: Marlowe, Frank W., et al. "More ‘altruistic’punishment in larger societies." Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences 275.1634 (2008): 587-592. In general: Take some time to refresh your writing skills. You will find it essential to successfully complete the written component of the assignment. I have posted several resources for writing on Canvas. Remember that the aim of your writing is clarity, and simple is often better than complex Sentences that are too long (4 or more 'clauses' or parts) may confuse the reader. If a simpler, more direct word works to make your point as well as a $5 “SAT” word, use the simpler one. Use technical terms correctly and only when needed. Learn what they mean, how to use them and how to spell them. Do not use contractions (isn't, doesn't, it's). While these are common in speech, in formal writing the full form (is not, does not, it is) is expected. Specific Guidelines: Write an academic ESSAY summarizing and evaluating the assigned article. Your essay should be 2-4 pages in length, 12 point font, double-spaced. Your essay should address each of the specific questions below (the same questions answered in Writing Assignments #1 and #2) Your essay should an include an introduction (1 paragraph; introduce the paper, the main research question, and briefly describe the data collected/results) a body (2-3 paragraphs; specify the hypotheses being tested and briefly describe the background the authors' provide to justify their hypotheses (this is found in the article's introduction), provide more detail regarding the methods, summarize the findings, and identify the strengths and/or weaknesses of the study) and a conclusion (1-2 paragraphs; summarize the authors' conclusions derived from their data, how it relates to the main research question, and your own assessment of the conclusions). All work must be in your own words; do NOT use quotes from the article. Assignment should be double spaced, in 12 point font, and use 1 inch margins. You must use APA format for any citations (guidelines for APA formatting have been posted on Canvas). Note that a “Works Cited” section is required on all assignments. In this essay format, you should include the in-text citation the first time you mention the article you are reviewing. You do not need to repeat the in-text citation as long as it is clear that you are still discussing the same source. Examples of proper in-text citations in APA format: In their study of women's sexual desire across the menstrual cycle, Pillsworth & Haselton (2006) tested the hypothesis that..... A study of 79 naturally-cycling women found that women expressed more sexual desire at high fertility compared to low (Pillsworth & Haselton, 2006). NOTE: The citation included at the top of this page is NOT in APA format. You must revise it to be in APA format. See web sources listed in module. Be sure that your essay answers ALL of the following questions. You DO NOT need to answer them in this order in your essay. What was the primary aim or goal of the study? What were the specific hypotheses being tested? What were the methods used in the study? Identify the main outcome measures (dependent variables) and predictor measures (independent variables) used in the study. Summarize the results of the study. What were the authors’ conclusions based on their data? How do the findings from this study inform your understanding of human behavior? Do you think that the authors’ conclusions are adequately supported by the data they present from their study? Why or why not? Be specific.
