Step 1: Select Your Research Question

2. What effect does violence in the media have on children?

How will Step 1 be graded? Step 1 will not receive a grade.

Step 2: Select Your Search Terms

A. Identifying Key Concepts

List the three key concepts (words, phrases, or both) that best describe the main concepts of your selected research question from Step 1.

Key Concept 1

Key Concept 2

Key Concept 3




Example: For the research question “How can marketing on the Internet be effective for a small business?” the key concepts are: marketing, Internet, small business

Hint: Refer to week 1 for key concepts.

Instructor Comments

Great job picking out the three key concepts!

Additional Comments

very good

B. Brainstorming Alternative/Related Terms

Review the key concepts you listed in each of the boxes above (Step 2, Part A) and identify alternative terms/synonyms or related terms for each key concept in the appropriate box below.

Key Concept 1

Alternative/Related Terms

Key Concept 2

Alternative/Related Terms

Key Concept 3

Alternative/Related Terms




Example: For the research question example in Step 2, Part A:

· Key Concept 1: marketing

· Key Concept 1 Alternative/Related Terms: branding, advertising, promotion

Hint: Refer to week 1 for a review of identifying alternative/related terms (keywords) for key concepts.

How will Step 2 be graded?

Unsatisfactory (0 points): Does not demonstrate an understanding of the key concepts of the research question or identify any relevant alternative/related terms or synonyms.

Satisfactory (1–4 points): Correctly lists the three key concepts from the research question in Part A and/or identifies at least one relevant alternative/related term or synonym for each key concept listed in Part B.

Excellent (5 points): Accurately lists three key concepts of the research question, thus demonstrating an understanding of the research question, and identifies two or more relevant alternative/related terms for each key concept, indicating some creative brainstorming.

Instructor Comments

Additional Comments

This is sort of partially done, I would say. I would expect that you would push quite a bit harder and come up with many more synonyms for each term, perhaps 4-5 each. Also, I don’t think ‘behavior’s is a very on-target synonym for violence. Think maybe crime, assault, delinquency, bullying, murder “gang warfare” and so on.

Step 2 Grade


Step 3: Create a Boolean Search Statement

Using all of the key concepts you identified in Step 2, Part A and some of the keywords (alternative/related terms) you identified in Step 2, Part B, create a search statement that effectively uses Boolean operators and advanced searching techniques (nesting, truncation, phrase searching).

(media OR television OR movies) AND (violence OR behaviors) AND (children OR adolescent)

Example: (marketing OR branding OR advertis*) AND (Internet OR Web) AND (“small business” OR entrepreneurship)

Hint: Refer to week 1 for a review of Boolean operators, search statements, and advanced searching techniques.

How will Step 3 be graded?

Unsatisfactory (0–1 points): Does not construct a reasonable search statement.

Satisfactory (2–4 points): Constructs a basic search statement that effectively uses Boolean operators to connect key concepts.

Excellent (5 points): Effectively uses Boolean operators and advanced searching techniques (nesting, truncation, phrase searching) to construct a search statement with no spelling errors.

Instructor Comments

Additional Comments

You certainly show some of the concepts here, but you are not using truncation (i.e. child*) and you don’t have an example of phrase searching, so you miss a few of the techniques we have studied. But you are getting there. I also note my problems with the word ‘behaviors’ there.

Step 3 Grade
