Question Description
I’m stuck on a Psychology question and need an explanation.

Please use artciles attached

The purpose of this for you to practice identifying and evaluating scholarly articles for your Evaluative Annotated Bibliography assignment.

Search for scholarly articles on the topic of Nutrition and eating behaviors of aging people.

Identify at least three scholarly articles on your topic that appear to offer valuable insights.

Cite and reference the articles you found using APA formatting.

For each article, briefly explain what led you to believe that the article would be useful to you.

Choose one of the three articles, then, in a brief discussion of approximately 200 words, use the Graduate-Level Evaluation Criteria to evaluate the credibility, relevance, and potential bias of that article.

Graduate-level evaluation

Since graduate-level projects tend to be larger in scope and graduate students have more experience with research, they should be evaluating materials with deeper criteria than undergraduates. Keep in mind, depending on your project, you may need to be even more critical in your evaluation.

Credibility and authority

Is the author considered important in the field?
Has there been a reaction in the professional or scholarly literature to the writings of this author? Have other articles cited this author?
What authors is this author citing?
Is the journal or publisher well known?
Where does this article fit within the literature of the field?
Relevance and accuracy

Is the information accurate? Is the information valid?
Do the author’s ideas support or refute current thinking in the field?
Are there methodological problems? Does the data collected support the conclusions?
Is the statistical analysis significant?
What is missing from the discussion?
Bias and Point of View

What points of view does the author have? Does the author belong to a particular school of thought?
What values or beliefs does the author have? Do those beliefs affect the author’s writing?
Are multiple sides of the issue included? Can you use evidence to argue counter points?
What assumptions has the author made? Are the author’s arguments supported with citations?
Are the citations from similar sources or from a variety of sources?

Do you need current information? Is your source timely? If a source is not dated, what does that tell you?
Are you looking for background or historical information? In this case, the date of publication may not be as relevant.
Checklist for assessing an author’s credentials

Use information provided in the book or article about the author’s credentials. Use a search engine to find more information. For example, search Google for an author’s name in quotes. Add the institution or company they work for to narrow your search.

What is the author’s education or profession? Does it relate to the subject of the work?
With what institutions, organizations, or companies has the author been affiliated?
What other works has the author produced?
Do other experts speak of the author as an authority? Is the author considered important in the field?
Is the publisher academic (a university press) or commercial?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.


Discussion Questions (DQ)

Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
Weekly Participation

Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality

Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes

I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
LopesWrite Policy

For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
Late Policy

The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.

Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
