Please read full instructions in the instruction attachments The paper will require 13 page and not including work cited and title page. The paper will require 12 sources but I included 6 from the annotated bibliography. So you will need to find 6 more sources I have attached the paper hypothesis, methods and results and experiment materials and sample APA format for the paper. (please read all attached material) Assignment: In this study, we are interested in investigating how threat vs. no threat can impact the categorization of White-Hispanic targets differently for White and Hispanic participants.
You must write a research paper on the effect of threat (IV: threat vs. no threat manipulation from Ho et al., 2013) on White and Hispanic participants’ (IV: White participants vs. Hispanic participants) categorization of Hispanic-White Biracials (DV: To what degree do you consider Hispanic/White biracial people to be a part of your racial group?).
The data has already been collected.
Hypotheses: We hypothesis that there will be a main effect of condition, such that participants in the threat condition will categorize Hispanic-White Biracials as less a part of their racial ingroup than participants in the control (i.e., no threat) condition. We also hypothesize a main effect of participant race, such that White participants will categorize Hispanic-White Biracials as less a part of their racial ingroup than Hispanic Participants.
Finally, we predict a condition x participant race interaction. Specifically, we hypothesize that White participants in the threat condition will categorize Hispanic-White Biracials as less ingroup than White participants in the no threat condition. For Hispanic participants, we hypothesize there will be no difference in categorization of Hispanic-White biracials between the threat and no threat conditions.
Formatting: All parts of your manuscript should be double-spaced with standard “1” margins. You also need to use the header option on your word processor to give your manuscript a running head and page numbers. Please refer to the APA style guide template to ensure your paper is APA format. You will be primarily graded on the clarity of your writing and your ability to adhere to APA style.
Your paper should consist of the following parts:
Title Page: See p. 163 in the textbook for more information and p. 169 for an example.
Abstract: See p. 170 in the textbook for more information and p. and 178 for an example.
Introduction: This should be about 4-6 paragraphs. See pp. 178-179 in the textbook for more information and p. 171 for an example. Remember to 1) introduce the research question or problem, 2) review the relevant research on the topic, and 3) state your specific hypotheses and explain why they make sense given the literature you reviewed earlier.
Here is a simple way of structuring your introduction:
Start the paper by broadly describing the research topic. In the next few paragraphs, provide the background literature on the topic; be sure to include key theories and findings. In the next few paragraphs you should transition to your study and set forth your hypotheses along with a brief justification for your hypotheses based on the background literature from the previous paragraph.
Method: You should use subheadings, such as participants, procedure, and materials, even though they will be very brief. See p. 179-180 in the textbook for more information and pp. 172-173 for an example.
Results: You need to report the results of your experiment (main effects and interaction). Begin by restating your hypotheses one at a time, and reporting whether the data supports your hypothesis or not. Discussion: In 3-5 paragraphs discuss
1) whether or not the results support your hypothesis (make sure to restate your hypotheses),
2) what the implications of your research are for our understanding of the issue being studied,
3) some of the limitations of your study along with any alternative explanations for your
References: This should start on a new page, and should include at least 12 references
