The Stroop Task
Student Name
North Carolina Central University

The abstract should be one paragraph of between 150 and 250 words. It is not indented. Section titles, such as the word Abstract above, are not considered headings so they don’t use bold heading format. Instead, use the Section Title style. This style automatically starts your section on a new page, so you don’t have to add page breaks. Note that all of the styles for this template are available on the Home tab of the ribbon, in the Styles gallery. The abstract should not be indented.

The Stroop Task
First you have to describe the background on what is the Stroop task…. Use all three of the references provide to help you understand, discuss and cite the previous research on this topic. This serves as the LITERATURE REVIEW section of your paper. The proper way to format the in-text citations (DeYoung, 2014; MacLeod, 1991; Stroop, 1992). Remember that the in-text citation goes inside of the period.
Make sure to state the hypothesis for this study that you will be conducting.
Describe the procedures that you followed for collecting the data. Be as detailed and specific as possible. Keep your language professional and use good grammar.
Your analyses will be discussed in this section. In this section, you will report the results of all five attempts and the mean scores. You will have your table and graph in the appendix, but this section will discuss the results in orders, referring to the table and graph. Your data visualizations cannot replace the discussion of the results, they only supplement the results section.
Now you will start to interpret the results. You will restate the purpose of the current study and summarize findings. Then you will compare the findings of the current study with previous work. Finally, you will discuss the strengths, limitations, and usefulness/relevance of the current study.

Lab 4 Assignment
The Stroop Effect was discovered in 1935 by a researcher named J. R. Stroop (MacLeod, 1991). It is a fascinating phenomenon in which the way we automatically process the meaning of words interferes with our ability to identify colors (Stroop, 1992). In this lab, you will experience the Stroop Effect by performing word and color identification tasks under three different experimental conditions: Identifying colors, identifying the names of colors, and identifying the color of the ink that a color word is printed in. You will perform ten trials in each of the conditions described above, and you will have three practice trials in each condition before you begin.
Instructions for Collecting Data
1. Go to the following web address: https://www.psytoolkit.org/experiment-library/stroop.html [Click ‘Run the Demo’ on the left-hand side menu.] (PsyToolKit, 2018).
2. Position your fingers on the ‘r’ – red, ‘g’ – green, ‘b’ – blue and ‘y’ – yellow.
3. Once you press start, choose the letter for the color of the word (the color it is printed in). This may or may not be compatible/congruent with the actual work (e.g. the word red may be printed in red [compatible / congruent] – choose red or the word red may be printed in green [incompatible / incongruent] – choose green)
4. After 40 trials, it will tell you the average milliseconds for the congruent trails and for the incongruent trials (when you got it correct). Enter these numbers on the data sheet provided with this lab.

5. You should go through the entire process five times. Make sure to record the data for each of the five times you complete the task and you are now ready to write your lab report.
Instructions for Writing the Lab Report
1. The introduction should include background on the Stroop Effect, the background/purpose of the lab report and the hypothesis.
2. Complete the Table (see page 4).
3. Present your data in either a bar graph or a line graph. Be sure to clearly label the axes of your graph and display the data for the number correct and the time required on the same graph. You may draw this graph by hand or use a graphing program like Excel or SPSS.
4. Summarize the pattern of your results in a paragraph. In other words, what does your graph tell us?
5. In the discussion section, be sure to answer each of the following questions:
· What pattern of results would you expect to find if you exhibited the Stroop Effect? Is this what actually happened?
· If you did not show the typical Stroop pattern, do you have any hypotheses about why you didn’t?
· Did you find some conditions to be more subjectively difficult than others? Please elaborate.
· Did you notice any trade-off between speed and accuracy? In other words, did you do better if you took more time?
6. Write a few sentences explaining why the Stroop Effect occurs.
7. Be sure to in
