Short Assignment 4 – Experimental Assessment
I’ve attached a series of experiments conducted by Daryl Bem. The article (in APA style) is:
Bem, D. J. (2011). Feeling the future: Experimental evidence for anomalous retroactive
influences on cognition and affect. Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, 100,
I want you to analyze the findings in this article, ultimately leading to your conclusion of should we trust the findings of these experiments or should we reject the findings of these experiments?
This article is not an easy read because there are 9 short experiments to replicate the effect, but graduate school is demanding and I think you are quite capable of doing this. So read the article first, but I do not expect you to understand or interpret any of the statistics because we haven’t learned about these statistics (yet). But I do think you are qualified to focus your attention on the experimental methodologies and decisions made in these experiments to form an overall conclusion about the validity of the results. Some criteria you should consider to make your final determination:
1 – What type of experimental designs were conducted?
2 – Did the designs meet the criteria for good experiments?
3 – What were the independent variables and how were they manipulated?
4 – What were the dependent variables and how were they measured?
5 – How were participants sampled and assigned to conditions?
6 – What were the results/findings of the experiments and are they generalizable?
7 – Are there any validity concerns?
8 – Does the replication of these findings make them more valid?
In a 2-page double-spaced short assignment, I want you to start the paper with a thesis statement highlighting if we should or should not trust the findings of this study. Then, I want you to provide evidence to support your claim of support or rejection based on the 8 criteria (or more) above. These criteria are discussed in your reading for this week (chapter 13) and in my video lecture. I consider this to be a more challenging assignment and I look forward to reading your paper. After I grade these assignments, I will give you a tally of your classmates vote to trust or not trust the findings. You should not discuss the assignment with each other, and I expect each of you to do your own work. I will check for plagiarism on this one. If you have questions about how to complete the assignment, please send me and email or give me a call. Thanks!

Frequently asked questions
How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.
We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.
Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?
All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.
What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?
Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!
Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?
We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.
I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?
Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.
