Research Design: In this part of the paper, use your previous analysis of the existing research in the field to develop your research design. You will re-identify a gap in the research you have reviewed (utilizing the feedback that I left you in the worksheet), explain how the research supports further exploration of that aspect of cognitive psychology, and develop a research question addressing the gap. You will then determine an appropriate research design and explain how it could be implemented, and how you will account for issues of ethics in your proposed research question.
The following critical elements must be addressed:
A. Using the feedback I provided to you in the worksheet, restate the gap you identified in the research that is unexplored or underdeveloped. For example, is there an unexplored aspect of your topic you believe could be further explored?
B. Using the feedback I provided to you in the worksheet, develop and provide a basic research question addressing the identified gap. In other words, create a question that you could answer in potential research further investigating your identified gap. Be sure to support your developed research question with examples from research to support your claims.
C. Determine an appropriate research design that addresses your research question regarding your topic and explain why this design was chosen and why it’s appropriate (e.g. correlational, observational, longitudinal, and so forth). Be sure to also explain how you envision implementing your research (number of subjects, the location where you might conduct your study, and what type of measures you might use to evaluate what you are studying).
D. Explain how you will ensure that your own proposed research design follows ethical guidelines. In other words, how will you ensure that issues of ethics associated with your proposed research have been managed appropriately? Be sure to utilize the APA ethics code and support your explanation with examples from the research you presented in your worksheet.
E. Explain how your approach to accounting for issues of ethics was informed and influenced by your review of the existing research in the field. In other words, what did you learn from the reviewed research in terms of how to address issues of ethics that you were able to incorporate in your own design?

Guidelines for Submission: You will upload the milestone as a Word document to Blackboard for grading and feedback. Once the submissions are graded, you will be able to review the feedback provided to you in the grading rubric. Your worksheet should be completed following proper APA citation and reference format.
Any thoughts that are not your own MUST be cited in proper APA format. Direct quotes (short and long) MUST be cited and formatted following APA guidelines. Even if you paraphrase information, it MUST be cited. Papers are being evaluated through SafeAssign. Plagiarism will NOT be tolerated. If plagiarism is discovered, it will result in a grade of 0 for the assignment and possible disciplinary action. AU’s writing center can assist you if you are unsure. You can also use the following Purdue OWL link: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ to help you with your citations and references and you can avoid plagiarism by also using one of the following plagiarism checking links: https://papersowl.com/free-plagiarism-checker , https://www.grammarly.com/plagiarism-checker , and https://smallseotools.com/plagiarism-checker/
