8 Pages Essays / Projects Year: Pre-2019

Submissions 1 & 2: Evidence-Based Essay Length: 1000-1500 words Support for the essay component of PSYC1020 is based in the tutorials from week 5 onwards. Consistent with Psychology’s claim to be a scientific discipline, arguments for or against any proposition should be made by presenting and interpreting relevant empirical evidence rather than by appeal to authority, emotion, or individual experience. You are probably exposed daily to arguments about psychological phenomena which claim to be scientifically-based. In order to assist your development of critical thinking and communication skills with respect to such arguments, we ask that you research and construct such an argument yourself on the question of the reliability of human memory. Of course we all know that human memory is not perfect – that we do forget things. But when we do succeed in remembering something, can we trust the accuracy of our memory? This is the topic of this semester’s PSYC1020 essay: Essay Question: Is human memory for the details of past events reliably accurate? Present and interpret experimental research evidence arguing for or against the reliability of memory. This assignment will allow you to explore this topic in somewhat greater depth than we are able to treat most content in this introductory course. You will begin to access the primary research literature, and to interpret this from the critical perspectives you are gaining from lecture, text, and tutorial materials. You should begin by reading the references listed below as well as the relevant information in your text book.
