New! - Thesis Opportunities
This note is from Dr. Bryant in the Psychology Department
I have a couple ideas for potential honors theses and would love to work with two great students who could conduct them. Could you please alert students who are seeking projects and mentors? Thanks.
1. Undergraduates'' perceptions of whether to intervene when they observe cheating in their classes. As part of another study, I have oral responses from 125 participants discussing a hypothetical scenario involving observed cheating. These could be coded and analyzed using existing theory about academic dishonesty and ethical development.
2. The effects of cats'' and dogs'' breed, size, and color on perceptions of potential adopters. Every Halloween claims are made about the adoption of black cats and dogs. Prior research involves analyses of adoption records from rescue facilities and some poorly designed experiments. I think a solid experiment could be combined with a longitudinal descriptive study of records.
