In this assignment, you will consider the topic of measuring happiness in applied research. There is an extensive body of research on happiness and many measures of happiness and related constructs have been developed for research use. You will then write a paper that should model critical thought.
To successfully complete this assignment, organize your paper in the following manner using each of the headings provided below in boldface.

Identify who your subjects will be (e.g., children in Grades 4 to 6, incarcerated adults, clients in PTSD group therapy program, corporate CEOs, middle managers, first responders). This list is not exhaustive.
Feel free to identify and discuss other subject populations for your project. Although not required, if you have studied research methods and are employing an experimental design, you are encouraged to identify your independent and dependent variables. You are also encouraged to propose your research project on a topic that is relevant to a field you would consider pursuing for your personal career.
Assessing Happiness and Related Constructs
In this section,
List at least three questionnaires selected from the Authentic Happiness: Questionnaire Center to include in your project.
Summarize in one sentence what each test purports to measure.
Explain how you will utilize the test in your study (e.g., subject selection, evaluating the effectiveness of an intervention, determining the validity of another instrument utilized elsewhere in your study or program, symptom monitoring).
Validity Concerns
In this section,
Define each of the following terms using only the textbook, the instructor guidance, and scholarly sources in the order listed here: content validity, criterion-related validity, concurrent validity, construct validity, convergent validity, discriminant validity, and face validity.
Do not use Wikipedia, encyclopedias, dictionaries, or blogs for your definitions.
Discuss how each type of validity might apply to your research project or to the questionnaires you selected. You may present the validity information as a bulleted list, a table, chart, or figure.
Justify why you believe the tests you selected are appropriate and valid for the subjects on which you will base your research. If you are unable to justify the test as being appropriate and valid for a specific group, clearly state what the validity concerns are.
Apply information from the article Multicultural Guidelines: An Ecological Approach to Context, Identity, And Intersectionality.
Compose a one-paragraph conclusion as described in the University of Arizona Global Campus Writing Center’s resource Introductions & Conclusions.
In your conclusion, include any ethical concerns related to conducting your proposed research project and how knowledge obtained from your study could be utilized in an applied context.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
