IAT Results and Cognitive Dissonance

Option 1:  Your IAT Results and Cognitive Dissonance
Purpose:  Use your experience taking the IAT to explore and describe the causes of cognitive dissonance, strategies to reduce that dissonance, and theoretical explanations that may explain your results.  This essay will build your terminology and understanding of concepts we have used throughout the course.
Writing Tasks (see the Your Final Research and Reflection Essay: More about the IAT Option – you must read this page to complete the assignment):

Introductory paragraph in which you discuss your IAT results and identify the theory/area you will use to explain them.
Identify which strategy/technique(s) you used to reduce any dissonance you experienced.  Discuss how you used that technique and how successful it was.  If you didn’t experience any dissonance, explain which of the criteria for dissonance were not met.
Use either the a) Biology of Behavior or b) Learning perspectives outlined on the Your Final Research and Reflection Essay: More about the IAT Option page to explain your results from the IAT.
Discuss 1-2 things you’ve learned about yourself and how this self-awareness might influence your thinking and behavior.
Create a strategy for unlearning bias using one of the learning theories mentioned on the Your Final Research and Reflection Essay: More about the IAT Option page.

When referring to the text or another source, you can first use an in-text citation like “According to the OpenStax text (2020),” or “Spielman et al. (2020) describe….” Then provide the reference for your source(s) on a separate References page.  Check APA Citation Help for examples on how to write different types of References.  You can copy the reference below and insert a page number or numbers within the parentheses for the chapter text:  
Spielman, R. M., Jenkins, W. J., & Lovett, M. D. (2020). Psychology 2e (pp. #-#). OpenStax.  https://openstax.org/details/books/psychology-2e
When you’re finished with your essay (which is 3-4 pages/750-1000 words not including your title and Reference pages), make sure to re-read these instructions and the page of the option you chose to make sure you haven’t overlooked anything.

Your introduction addresses the questions above related to the accuracy of your IAT results, and you clearly and accurately describe your experience with cognitive dissonance.
Your clear and accurate application of either Biology of Behavior or Learning Perspective theories to your experience taking the IAT with special attention to the incorporation of definitions and supporting details.  Use at least 3 different Key Terms related to your chosen theory in your analysis.
Your strategy for curtailing bias is realistic, grounded in theory, and includes a description of counterstereotypic exemplars and how you use those exemplars. 
Depth of effort in articulating self-awareness through your exploration of influences and interactions
You’ve included a References page and cited your sources correctly.
