Please select one of the questions below as the focus of your assignment. Does personality affect how long people live? If yes, what factors are associated with greater longevity? If not, why personality is not related to longevity? What can be done to improve the quality of life or well-being of people with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias? Are there interventions that can be introduced into homes, assisted living facilities, or nursing homes, that improve quality of life or well-being for people with dementia? Does cognitive training lead to meaningful improvements in cognitive functions in healthy older adults? Can such training lead to meaningful improvements for older people diagnosed with Mild Cognitive Impairment? What can be done to help family caregivers who take care of aging parents with chronic illness? Is it effective to reduce the stress of family caregivers while providing care? What factors predict successful aging? How is successful aging defined in the literature? What are potential programs/interventions to promote successful aging? Using the topic you selected, identify a peer reviewed research article that is relevant to your topic. The article you identify might not address all of the questions included in the question but should be relevant. This should be an empirical article that reports on data collected from participants. It should NOT be a review article, systematic review, or meta-analysis, all of which do not include data collection from participants, and instead summarize research on a topic by reviewing multiple articles. In order to provide some assurance that this is actually a peer reviewed article, and to set a somewhat arbitrary quality threshold, the article should be included in the listing of ISI Web of Science journals, and should have been published in a journal with an Impact Factor of at least 2.0. The article should have been published in 2013 or later. Your assignment should include: A cover page, stating the research question that you are addressing (from the list of five possible topics), the reference in APA format, and a link to the online source (be sure that the web link works), and the Impact Factor of the journal (state your source for this Impact Factor). We will review the use of Impact Factors and how to find them during class, but in brief, there are three ways to identify Impact Factors: a. Using the Web of Science page, b. Finding it on the journal web page, or 3. Doing a google search for “impact factor” and the name of the journal. Then, in an essay of at least three full additional pages (no more than 5!): Introduction, summarizing the research questions/hypotheses, methodology (e.g., participants, design of the study, measures used) and results of the article (each should be about ¾ a page, or 1.5 pages total). Discuss how highly you would rate the article on each element of the TRAAP Test (timeliness, relevance, authority, accuracy, and purpose, and rate each TRAAP topic on a scale of 1-5, with a 5 being best.  Justification for each rating Any strengths or limitations on these points. You should also provide a general summary of the source based on these areas. Note that to address some of the elements of the TRAAP Test, you will have to do some additional research beyond what is in the article (e.g. to see if there are other versions available, to comment about the source). Please read the TRAAP test evaluating information guide at the bottom of this page to help you in this section of the assignment (note: the more you accurately address the key points of TRAAP guide, the better your grade can be!) Your review of the TRAAP test can be done in a ½ of a page. A statement about the strengths and weaknesses of the methodology of this journal article (at least half a page). Consider using course concepts, such as cross-sectional/longitudinal, cohort effect, attrition, practice effect, etc. A conclusion of how well this article addresses the research question that is your focus (at least half a page). Use APA format wherever this is relevant.  Outline (3-5 pages total NOT including the cover page): Cover page State research question Article reference in APA format Link to online source (make sure link works) Impact Factor of the journal State your source for the Impact Factor Introduction (at least 1 page) Research questions or hypotheses Methodology (e.g., participants, design of the study, measures used)  Summary of the results   3. TRAAP test (½ page) Rate each TRAAP topic on a scale of 1-5, with a 5 being best Justify each rating Address strengths and limitations on these points General summary sentence on source based on TRAAP topics  4. Strengths and weaknesses of methodology (½ page) At least ½ a page analyzing any strengths and weaknesses of the methodology of the journal article.   5.  Conclusion (½ page) At least ½ a page addresses how well you think this article addresses the question you are focusing on.  6.  Reference page  This should be a separate page, including all the references you cited in text. Use APA style.  Some Ground Rules: The assignment should be typed in Word, double-spaced with one-inch margins, and use 12 point font.   As you complete the assignments for your portfolio, please try to avoid using stereotypes to describe older adults (e.g., all old people are bad drivers; all older adults are senile). You can identify the challenges associated with growing older but try to also focus on the positive aspects of aging. I probably do not have to tell you this but just in case… While you have a lot of freedom in completing the assignments, please do not hand in material that is offensive. I want you to have fun with this assignment but please be respectful in your writing and in the article that you choose to focus on.  Be a critical thinker as you explore information via the web. You will be exploring journal articles, but remember, the fact that it has been published does not make it true.  Plagiarism will not be tolerated and can result in a failing grade for your portfolio project (see syllabus for details on my policy on academic dishonesty) and can lead to an FF in the course and even dismissal from the university. To avoid plagiarizing, you should: 1) write your own assignments, 2) give credit when citing information from other sources (lectures, textbook, websites, newspaper etc.) by including the name of the source in parentheses as part of the sentence, and 3) when citing information from other sources put the information in your own words. I highly recommend that you take notes when you read information, and write a draft without the source in front of you, to avoid unintentionally plagiarizing.   In some cases, at my discretion, I may deduct points for minor plagiarism. This will usually drop a grade on a paper by at least one letter grade. I may also allow a student to rewrite a paper that includes major plagiarism if I detect plagiarism that I believe is due to carelessness. If I do so, I may require the student to meet with me to review the paper. If I allow a rewrite, the student will receive a penalty of at least two letter grades. As part of this, the student may also be required to write a satisfactory essay on the topic of plagiarism. Failure to properly rewrite the paper or to write a satisfactory essay on plagiarism will result in a zero on the assignment.  DO NOT USE LENGTHY OR FREQUENT QUOTATIONS FROM YOUR SOURCES! In the past I have had a number of students who do not do the hard work of paraphrasing, or putting information into their own words. Their papers read like a “patchwork of quotations” instead of a paper based on original work and thought. I know that students do this to technically avoid plagiarism, but it is terrible writing! As you read research articles throughout the semester, you will see that these articles rarely use quotes. Because this is such a frequent problem, I am going to set an arbitrary limit of ten words being within quotation marks within a paper. Any more than this will lead to lowered grades. The best papers will have NO quoted material. Part of what you must learn to develop your writing is to paraphrase, which requires understanding the material enough to do so.  Please note: Your grade will be based both on the content (ability to follow directions) and quality of your work. Be sure to be careful with your writing. Avoid errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation. You should start with an outline, write several drafts and proofread your work. Use professional language, not slang. I have found that many students have trouble with use of apostrophes. Here is a quick guide you can use as a resource: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/621/01/  (Links to an external site.)  If your submission is too short you risk losing points for not being thorough. I suggest that you be sure to submit papers that fit at least the minimum length specified, both for the overall paragraph and for the individual elements.  RUBRIC FOR GRADING PORTFOLIO ASSIGNMENT #2 Excellent – the student’s work shows active mastery of the subject. Not only does the student understand the concepts and information in various readings but can also integrate information and concepts across areas. The work shows creativity and original thinking. Grammar, punctuation, and spelling are correct, and the writing is clear and well organized. Instructions are followed accurately. Good – the student’s work shows basic mastery of the subject. (S)he understands the concepts and information presented and communicates this in his/her own words. The work is solid, but not original or creative. There may be one or two minor spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors, or the organization of the paper may be slightly unclear. There may be a minor lapse in following instructions. Fair – the student’s work in general shows understanding of basic concepts and information, but has occasional lapses. The work shows satisfactory, but incomplete mastery of the subject. There may be several serious errors in grammar, punctuation, or spelling. Organization may be hard to follow. Instructions may not always followed. Poor – the student’s work shows enough understanding of the subject to be just barely adequate. The work shows major gaps in understanding. There may be several serious errors in grammar, punctuation, or spelling. Organization may be poor. Attention to the detail of the instructions may be poor. Tips for Paper #2: First, I suggest that you search for research articles while connected to the USF server. Many research journals are only available online to subscribers. USF has many research journal subscriptions that your USF affiliation will allow you to access. This can be done either by doing your work at USF, or by connecting to USF via the Virtual Private Network (VPN). While you are signed on to MyUSF, use this link https://www.usf.edu/it/documentation/virtual-private-network.aspx (Links to an external site.) You will install a program called Global Protect. Basically, using the VPN allows the web to see your computer as part of the USF network. Please ask IT, not me, for help with this! Then, I suggest that you use Google Scholar to search for research articles. http://scholar.google.com/  (Links to an external site.) You can do specialized searches, e.g. limiting the years of publication, with this search engine. I will provide a demonstration in class. When you identify articles with Google Scholar, sometimes you can click directly on the article title and get a topic. Other topics, you will see a link to find the article through the USF Library or through sources such as Research Gate. Note, the links below will only work if you on a USF computer, or using the VPN.  You can access the ISI Web of Science Journal Citations Reports at https://jcr.clarivate.com/JCRLandingPageAction.action?wsid=6EdHbGlIjaJKAAMcIJE&Init=Yes&SrcApp=IC2LS&SID=H2-MazTQp4Wj8pFzQPcnWVa99bCFax2FGqn8K-18x2dblSAA1shLRUa4tn0JGiq6Ax3Dx3D9ZEGWR24XLOgXpKMOglmDgx3Dx3D-03Ff2gF3hTJGBPDScD1wSwx3Dx3D-cLUx2FoETAVeN3rTSMreq46gx3Dx3D
