The discussion should address the issues raised in your introduction. For this class it should probably be a maximum of about two pages. You might want to include some or all of the following.

Summarize your findings. Were your hypotheses supported?

Talk about why you found what you found. Why were/weren’t your hypotheses supported? This might involve some reiteration of the introduction, especially for hypotheses that were supported. It might also involve some discussion of problems with the study for hypotheses that weren’t supported. But talking about why can also involve other things (e.g., maybe the hypothesis really was wrong).

Talk about implications of your study for a) the real world or b) psychological theory. In this class, there might not be much to say about theory, but we’ll see.

You might propose future research, although doing so is not always useful.

[NOTE: Make sure you write your references in APA style. These are examples of citing a journal article, a chapter in a book, and a book, respectively. There is a different format for each of these and for dozens of other types of publication. The Williams College library has a helpful set of examples of how to do APA references: http://library.williams.edu/citing/styles/apa.php. (There’s also this thing called Google that can be handy sometimes.) ]
