W-11, Consider Your Audience:

This site discusses writing for different audiences and the importance of your findings being understood.

Although the site is directed toward a health care audience, its principles can be applied to any discipline in your field of study (PSYCHOLOGY).

Web Site: NEDARC: “Utilizing Data for Communication”

Handouts: You’re “Threats to Internal Validity” and “Trustworthiness” will be useful as you finalize your Three Abbreviated Research Plans.

When you expand upon the body of knowledge in your field, the findings that you present may influence one reader, who may in turn influence others. How to present your research findings appropriately to your audience and knowing who your audience is require a thoughtful strategy. In this week’s Discussion, you will consider the members of that “small piece of the world” about which Dr. Nabors speaks, and the potential for social change.

To prepare for this Discussion:

• Review the NEDARC Web site, “Utilizing Data for Communication.”

• For your focus in this Discussion, choose one of the abbreviated research plans that you have drafted (Quantitative). (See attached 1)

• Identify the potential audiences for the research proposed in the plan.

•Select three potential audiences to whom you could potentially present your research findings.

•Suggest strategies for presenting your findings to these three audiences in a way that makes the most sense to the audience.

With these thoughts in mind: Write a 3-paragraph with your strategies for presenting your research findings to your three selected audiences. Justify why those strategies would be most effective for those audiences.
