To be successful in this paper, I suggest you follow the steps below:

1. Identify your subject(s) and meet with them to identify a target goal/problem that they want to change.

2. Review the literature on that problem/goal to identify possible intervention ideas. Your intervention and methods should be informed by past research – not just something you make up. You could replicate an intervention from a past study or use past research as inspiration for designing your intervention. In either scenario, your intervention should be something that your subject(s) is(are) comfortable doing.

3. Determine how you will measure the problem/perception/attitude you are trying to change. Some behaviors can be easily tracked with a spreadsheet. Other things (e.g., depression) are best measured using a formal tool. Reviewing past research will help you develop your measurement plan.

4. Plan your study – choose a study design, develop a timeline and plan for collecting data, and review this plan with your subject(s). You will generally need at least two weeks to conduct the study.

5. While you’re in the data collection stage, start working on your paper.

6. When data collection is done, complete your graph and write the rest of your paper.
