Appendix B: Sample Research Report

The research report in Appendix B was written by Melanie Modrall as part of her course work for Sociology 315: An Introduction to Research, taught by Dr. Diane Symbaluk at MacEwan University during the Winter of 2018. Notably, Melanie was conducting research and writing up the results in a formal manner for the first time (like you might be doing), and her accomplishments earned her the Department of Sociology’s Outstanding Undergraduate Research Award in May of 2018. This appendix shows the reader how an actual study using basic research can be written as a formal research report (as explained in Chapter 7).
