ARTICLE IDENTIFICATION – 10 points possible NOTE: Both Number 1 and Number 2 below must be completed to earn these points 1 . In the space below explain why you picked the article you selected for this assignment from the classroom Resources folder. Include a description of what about the focus of the article you chose captured your interest and why.
I chose “Smoking behavior and motivational flexibility in light and heavy smokers,” (Darrel & Lobe 2012) because I have never understood why people chose to smoke. You know that smoking is bad for your health when you start smoking and you know it is hard to quit so why do people even start smoking in the first place? This article captured my interest because I work with a lot of people that smoke and have been smoking or years and I always wondered what their motivation was to smoke. I have also always wondered if there were certain triggers that caused them to, “crave,” a cigarette. I think learning why people smoke and what dictates when they do it would be informational. 2.

Some of the key introductory points made in the beginning of this article are all the major disadvantages to smoking.

Describe the research design that your selected article’s author(s) used in onduinducting study (Ex: survey or inventory, individual or group interview, case study, laboratory controlled or naturalistic observation). I personally think that the researchers in this article chose surveys as their research design. With the many students they had participate in this study it was easy to them to survey them through an automated system through a survey. They were sent the link to a webpweapon had their participants review their daily cigarette intake and report how many they had every day for two weeks.
The students could select how many igarcigarettesy had then they had open ended questions where they could elaborate on it. They reported daily how often they smoked and then they were asked questions about why they smoked or why they chose not to smoke. b. IBentify by name in the space below any specific measures (surveys, inventories, tests, etc. ) used by your selected article’s author(s) in the study (Ex: the Psychological Distress Symptom Checklist; the Minnesota MultMultiphasesonality Inventory; the developed by the article author[s]). The researchers in this article chose data coding to help organize their data. They also used a special software called PsycPsychiatry>
With this specific measure they were able to help code the motives that people had to smoke and how many cigarettes were associated with the motive daily. It helped to pick out certain reasons that people smoke so that the participants could pick from a category and not have a simple yes/no answer. It was able to track all day-to-day changes in the participant’s motivation to have a cigarette. It also helped that participants to be able to tell why they chose to not have a cigarette and it displayed that data alongside the data of the smokers of that day. . Describe in the space below characteristics of the participants (sometimes called “subjects”) involved in the research study conducted by the author(s) of your selected article.
Examples of this type of information include: The number of persons who participated; participant demographics (age, gender, race and ethnicity, college or employment status, geographic location); whether participants were paid to participate in the study or if no compensation was provided to them for their participation One hundred willing and volunteering college students participated in the study. All participants were between the ages of 18-28 with the median age being 20. The participants were almost split equally male and female. Many ethnethnicityticipated in the study to include; European American, Asian American/ Pacific Islander, Latino/Hispanic, African American and students that identified themselves as other. So overall the group of students that participated were a wide range of age, gender and ethnicity. The researchers helped to provide better evidence by ensuring that a wide spectrum of students were involved in the study. 3. Findings/Analysis a.
Identify in the space below the types of statistical analyses used by the author(s) of your selected article Note: You are likely not at this point in your college career an expert on statistical analyses but don’t have to be in order to complete this portion of the assignment which only requires listing them by name. Types of statistical analysis used in this study were: Examining the difference between light and heavy smokers. The factors and motives that lead people to smoke that day Tracking day to day changes between individuals Deciding if a person was a light or heavy smoker based on their baseline of smoking . In the space below, summarize the research findings (often referred to in articles as “results”) of the study conducted by the author(s) of your selected article. The researchers found that heavy smokers changed their motives for smoking more frequently and almost daily compared to the light smokers.
They found that motives can change from day to day for why a person decides to have a cigarette or why they chose not to. They also found that people smoked more during the trial than they motivation for smoking because the participants did not really correlate those with the times they smoked. 4. Conclusion/Discussion Summarize in the space below the conclusions reached by the author(s) of your selected article. Note: These may be found under the heading “Conclusion” or “Discussion” or in paragraphs near the end of the article and are based on the research findings of the author(s) of your selected article. The researchers concluded that people usually have many reasons for lighting up a cigarette.
They saw that there are many of reasons that people smoke and everyone has their own reason that they smoke and it is not really a standard trigger amongst all smokers. On the other hand daily smokers mostly Just smoke out of habit or ddicdictionthe nicotine. Everything shifted between the participants and really overall was not a very standard or concrete conclusion. They recognized that many of times people smoke are Just out of habit at times such as after a meal or while driving. Further research needs to be conducted into why people choose to engage in unhealthy behaviors in the first place. SPELLING AND GRAMMAR – 10 points possible (Nothing to type here.
