Judgment and Decision Making is a relatively new field, with an incredibly active current research agenda. Draw on what you have learnt throughout the module to construct a research proposal. Focus of research proposal: Using Adults with ADHD to test heuristic and bias based theories of judgement and decision making. Maximum length: 10 pages (A4 – font 12, DOUBLE SPACED, margins a minimum of 2.5 cm). The proposal must include each of the following elements. The use of subheadings is encouraged. Figures and tables are another way in which information might be presented most effectively. • Aims • Background • Methodology (15%) o Ethical Issues – You need to demonstrate that you have paid attention to the potential for any difficulties to arise from the proposed research. How you structure the proposal is ultimately up to you. A typical structure would present a short introduction to the issue under investigation with the central aims of the proposal, all included in the first couple of pages. The background would follow, with the aim being to set up why the current research question is of paramount importance, given the extant literature (approximately 6-7 pages). The final page or so would consist of methodology. Methodology. You need to report what you will do, and why you will do it. The methodology should present an example experiment in your program of research. Although the number of participants (including power calculations) is a critical part of ‘real’ grant applications, that is not necessary in this assignment. Whilst the aims and methodology are important, the main aim of this assessment is to test your ability to synthesise previous literature to identify a fruitful future line of research. Consequently, it is the background that is weighted most heavily in this assessment. Strong proposals will synthesise across the module to identify a program of research. Proposals simply suggesting a methodological tweak on a previous experiment will not achieve high marks. Bibliography. This is required, but is IN ADDITION TO the 10 pages of the proposal.
