Capstone Research

Step 1: Prospectus and Selection Process

  • Develop prospectus in Research Methods 1 (RM1) and submit to Behavioral Sciences Lab (BSL) committee.
  • Prospectus can be based off pre-existing iWorx study.
  • Committee will consider prospectus, GPA, Resume and/or CV, and possibly an interview.
  • Due to limited availability of the lab the application process is competitive.
  • Should be completed 2 semesters before capstone class is taken.
  • Application should be submitted 1 week prior to final day of class during the semester RM1 is taken.
  • Applicants will be notified of status by the beginning of Quantitative Research Methods (QRM).
  • Non BSSS students must follow these same procedures.

Step 2: Paper and Project Development

  • During QRM, selected students will begin development of their paper and project.
  • Near the end of the semester, they will begin training with iWorx (lab tech will train selected students).
  • Students must complete IRB application and CITI training and receive approval before end of semester.

Step 3: Pilot Studies

  • During winter intersession, selected students begin running pilot studies.
  • This will allow them to make corrections as needed before the beginning of capstone.
  • Students must also develop methods of recruitment and advertisement.

Step 4: Experimentation
