In everyday life, we are regularly exposed to various claims

Research Methods
 In everyday life, we are regularly exposed to various claims about human psychology and human behavior. While some of these claims may be scientifically valid, many of them are not. Choose a psychological claim about which you are skeptical. If you are having trouble thinking of one, think about common areas of pseudoscience that you may have heard about (e.g., astrology, ESP, hypnosis) to help you generate ideas.  develop a research question that you have about the claim. Discuss how the scientific method could be used to test your research question as compared to one of the other methods mentioned in the module (method of tenacity, method of authority, a priori method).

To Get a Good Paper

Academic writing is a formal writing style common in scholarly publications and universities. Thus, the importance of ensuring correct grammar, punctuation and spelling cannot be overstated in academic writing. Hence, it is imperative to proofread ones work since numerous grammatical errors and misspelled words will be penalized thus reduce the grade significantly. To ensure little to no grammatical and punctuation errors, it is recommended to seek the assistance of another party in proofreading ones work. Further, the paper should be easy to read therefore it is advisable to use standard 10 to 12-point typefaces and maintain left alignment of the text, as well as avoid compressing your paper by ensuring that the entire essay meets the recommended word count.

The standard page length is 275 words, unless stated otherwise. Hence, the writer should avoid attempts of either increasing or shortening the length of a paper such as using incorrect margins, indentations, and spacing, among others. Instead, the writer must ensure that the paper is double-spaced, neatly formatted, and maintain a one-inch margin. Also, the writer must always use academic prose, which includes avoiding contractions, first-person and second-person pronouns, engaging in personal stories, beginning sentences with conjunctions, alluding to religion, posing any questions in an assignment, and using phrases. More importantly, plagiarism must be avoided at all costs.
