Testing a Theory


PSY 201 Week 1: Testing a Theory

Write at least 300 words describing a recent time when you had to test a theory. This theory may be something you have tested at work, school, or even at home, such as using alternative ingredients in a recipe or a different method of discipline with your children.

Answer the following questions in your summary:

  • • What type of informal research method did you use?
    • How was your research method similar to research methods used by psychologists?
    • If given another opportunity, what would you have done differently?

Submit your answers as a Microsoft® Word attachment to your Assignment Section.
