Use your textbook and the Argosy University online library resources to identify and research a topic in adult development (e.g., memory, muscle strength, etc.) that you wish to examine across various age agroups. Develop an outline for either a cross-sectional or longitudinal research design. Write a paper consisting of the following information:
- An introduction to the topic you selected, including a summary of at least one peer-reviewed journal article describing recent research (post 2005) on the topic;
- A description of how you will measure the topic of study (e.g., the dependent variable).
- A description of which type of design will be used and why that would be most appropriate. Also identify what age groups will be studied.
- On the basis of your readings and research, provide a prediction of what you expect to find upon completion of your study.
Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Your paper should be double-spaced with one-inch margins, written in APA style, and free of typographical and grammatical errors. It should include a title page with a running head and a reference page. The body of the paper should be 3 pages in length.
