PSY 560 Final Project Guidelines and Rubric
Overview
The final project for this course incorporates key elements required in your role as an emerging professional in the field of psychology: demonstrate an in-depth
knowledge of the subject matter of psychology; provide a nuanced, critical analysis of this subject matter; and illustrate the theory’s relevance in the field by
defending its use for real-world problems.
You will accomplish these tasks in the final project by producing a theoretical analysis in which you develop and support a position statement regarding the ways
the theory you select fits into the larger scope of personality theory. To this end, you will argue the use of your theory in a contemporary theoretical context. To
accomplish this, you will do the following: provide a detailed description of a selected theory using appropriate source material as the basis of your description;
2) provide a critical analysis of the theory that addresses the validity of the theory drawing on published research, establishes the contemporary relevance of the
theory, identifies strengths and weaknesses of the theory, examines the cultural utility of the theory, and considers the theory within the larger context of
personality psychology; and propose an application of the theory to a contemporary issue or phenomenon.
The project is divided into three milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final
submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Seven. The final product will be submitted in Module Nine.
Refer to the Project Theorists document for a list of preapproved theorists and resources.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes:





Evaluate the use of personality theories in published research for validity and contemporary relevance
Analyze contemporary theories in personality psychology for their changing roles in the field over time
Defend the use of personality psychology theories by assessing them against alternative theoretical perspectives
Illustrate the applicability of theories in personality psychology to contemporary issues and different cultural perspectives
Formulate conclusions on the contemporary use of theories in personality psychology based on theoretical analysis
1
Prompt
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I.
Background: In this section, you will analyze the key concepts and background of your theory. Select your theory and theorist from the list of
preapproved theorists.
A. Provide a historical overview of your selected theorist, including relevant biographical information and historical events that influenced the
theorist.
B. Analyze the historical development of the theory based on the context of the theorist. Support your response with relevant research. For
example, how did your chosen theory compare with the prevailing theory/theories of psychology in practice during this time period? How does
the theory relate to the work of earlier theorists?
C. Articulate the key concepts of your chosen theory as conceived by the theorist. Support your response with relevant research.
D. Discuss how the theory is used today, identifying key differences from its initial application. What key concepts in the theory have changed over
time, and how has the theory’s role changed?
II.
Evaluation: In this section, you will state your position regarding the continuing relevance of the theory in the field of personality psychology. Then, you
will be tasked with defending that position in a number of ways, including evaluating its current use, defending it against alternative theoretical
positions, and showing its value for real-world problems.
A. Position Statement
i.
Develop a position statement regarding your theory’s continued relevance in personality psychology today. Your statement must be
supported with logical rationale.
ii.
Evaluate the validity and accuracy of secondary research using your theory, explaining how effectively it supports your position
statement. Be sure to cite specific examples from the research in your response.
iii.
Evaluate your theory’s appropriateness for a range of cultural perspectives in its contemporary use, and explain how effectively this
supports your position statement. Be sure to cite relevant sources in your response. In other words, how well does this theory make
testable predictions about human behavior across a range of cultural perspectives, including those of special populations?
B. Alternative Theoretical Positions: For this section, you will select two or more alternative theories in personality psychology and address the
following:
i.
Compare the theory to alternative theoretical positions that are currently used by researchers in personality psychology. For instance,
how do their key concepts compare?
ii.
Assess the extent to which these alternative positions challenge the validity, weaknesses, or biases of your chosen theory. Be sure to cite
specific examples from published research in your response.
iii.
Defend the contemporary use of the theory against the challenges you identified. Be sure to support your defense with relevant
research.
2
C.
III.
Application
i.
Apply your selected theory in explaining a real-world problem (e.g., PTSD) or phenomenon (e.g., social media use). How would your
theorist understand this problem or phenomenon in terms of its root cause and key characteristics? Be sure to cite relevant research in
your response.
ii.
Assess published secondary research for solutions with the potential to address this problem or phenomenon. Does the contemporary
use of your theory provide viable approaches to this problem? What are they?
iii.
Explain how this application relates to the theory’s larger contemporary relevance. In other words, how does this application
demonstrate your theory’s potential to advance knowledge in personality psychology?
Conclusion: In this section, you will synthesize your analysis and discuss key takeaways. Your conclusion should accomplish the following:
A. Summarize the changing use of your theory over time, including how its use compares with other theories in personality psychology. How does
this theory fit within the spectrum of theories in personality psychology?
B. Based on your previous analysis, draw conclusions on the relevance of the theory moving forward. What can we learn from applications of this
theory in contemporary research?
Milestones
Milestone One: Background
In Module Three, you will submit an outline of the background section of the final project. List the principle background ideas such as relevant biographical
information and historical events that may have influenced the theorist. Identify the key concepts of your theory. Begin to formulate your ideas on how the
theory is used today. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone One Rubric.
Milestone Two: Position Statement
In Module Five, you will create a draft of Section II, Part A of the final project. You will create a position statement of your selected theory and the theory’s
relevance in personality psychology today. Make sure to cite your sources. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone Two Rubric.
Milestone Three: Alternative Theoretical Positions and Application
In Module Seven, you will write a draft of Section II, Parts B and C of the final project. This draft will have you begin to compare and contrast your selected
theory with the diverse range of theories you have explored throughout this course. Then, you will apply contemporary uses of the theory to real-world
problems. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone Three Rubric.
Final Submission: Theoretical Analysis
In Module Nine, you will submit your final project. It should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the critical elements of the final product. It should
reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course. This submission will be graded with the Final Project Rubric.
