Did the researchers try to overcome or control for the confounding variables? If so, how? ASSIGNMENT EXPECTATIONS: Please read before completing assignments. Copy the actual assignment from this page onto the cover page of your paper (do this for all papers in all courses). Assignment should be approximately 2 pages in length (double-spaced). Please use major sections corresponding to the major points of the assignment, and where appropriate use sub-sections (with headings). Remember to write in a scientific manner (try to avoid using the first person except when describing a relevant personal experience). Quoted material should not exceed 10% of the total paper (since the focus of these assignments is on independent thinking and critical analysis). Use your own words and build on the ideas of others. When material is copied verbatim from external sources, it MUST be properly cited. This means that material copied verbatim must be enclosed in quotes and the reference should be cited either within the text or with a footnote. Credible professional sources are used (for example, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, academic institutions, scholarly journals). Wikipedia is not acceptable. Cite references within the body of the paper as well as listing them at the end.
