This section describes the methodology of your research in detail. This section does not begin on a new page but it does have headings. Begin your method section by typing Method, centered on the page, and bolded. It includes three subsections: Participants, Measures, and Procedures.
This section includes information about your participants including basic demographic information so that the reader knows who makes up your sample.
You will find this information in SPSS.
One or more paragraphs describing each measure used in your study
You will find this information in Mental Measurements with Tests in Print which we have in print in the reference section of the library or in reviews that you find in the databases.
This should be a description of your sampling methods.
You will need to show that the assessment (test/measure/scale/whatever) is valid, so it actually measures what it's trying to measure. You can search for this in a psychology database by searching for the name of the assessment AND valid*
You can also check for this in the Mental Measurements Yearbook. This is a print book set in the Reference section of the Trustee Library (REF BF176 .B87). You can check which volume might have your assessment at this website: https://buros.org/tests-reviewed-mental-measurements-yearbook-series . Tip: press CRTL-F and search the name of your assessment to find it on the page.
Freebie for anyone using Social Readjustment Rating Scale:
The official name of the test is the Social Readjustment Rating Scale or the Holmes-Rahe Stress Inventory. Neither of these names appear in the MMY so you will have to use the databases to seek validation studies in the databases. When looking for validation it is easier to find information using Holmes Rahe than SRRS.
