Research Teacher

RESEARCH PLAN
I. Questions/Problems

a. What particular group of participants has a higher


color-word comprehension?
b. How do their results compare with the other
participants?

II. Expected Outcomes/Hypotheses

a. A group of participants which has a higher color-word


comprehension output will be the ones who can
interpret and answer the test faster than other
groups.
b. Their results, as compared to other groups, will be
highly different than the other groups tested.

III. Procedure

a. The proponent will administer a color-word


comprehension test to two groups of participants-the
male and female groups.
b. After the experiment, the tester will collect the data
and make some interpretations out of the obtained
results.

INTRODUCTION

The eye, our organ of sight, is one of the most


functional organs and is one of the most vital body parts. It
enables one to see what is happening around them - in color
and in detail. Our set of eyes may be compared to a camera
that has almost the same suit of parts as our eyes; but the
difference lies in its complexity – our eye I more complex to
comprehend than the ‘twin device’. It complexity is merely
coming from its functioning – from seeing the object to the
description of the object being looked at. The parts of our
eye are helping hand in hand to deliver us a better and
clearer glance of what our world looks like.

Where do our eyes process the information it gathered?


The question enables another important body organ to take
charge – the human brain. Our brain is the storehouse and the
processor of all information gathered by the five senses –
including the aforementioned sense of sight. It is much
likened to a control center that receives reports from its
field or satellite workers. But the way it stores and
processes information remains a blank space for the
scientists. The only known thing right now about this
marvelous ‘storehouse’ organ is that it is able to receive and
react to stimuli through its tiny but extremely functional
neurons. The said process happens instantaneously. That’s why,
the brain is the so-called ‘control center’ of our body for
the mere fact that it directs every bodily activities.
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

The following questions will be the problems to be solved


through the course of the study:

a. What particular group of participants will get a higher


score on the color-word test?
b. How do their results compare with the other group of
participants?

STATEMENT OF THE HYPOTHESES

The following statements will be the educated guesses


for the problems/questions stated:

a. The particular group of participants which has a higher


interpretative vision complex will be the group to top the
test.
b. Their results will be definitely higher than the other group
of subjects.

SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY

This research aims to discover which of the two groups of


participants will get the higher comprehension index in the
test. This is significant because it will know which gender is
better on the color-word test-it’s either the male or the female
group.
SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY

This research aims only to find out which group of


participants will get a higher color-word comprehension scores
and will only determine the more able group of participants can
duly interpret the test.

The study is to be conducted in Oriental Mindoro National


High School premises, with some of the students as participants.

Therefore, the study does not include students outside the


school grounds.

METHODOLOGY

Materials
The materials that I will use in this research proposal
are strips of white bond paper with written names of colors in
different font colors, tally sheet, and stopwatch.

Procedures

To start with, you need to prepare the materials


aforementioned above. You need to have at least 15 male students
and 15 female students as respondents or the ones that will take
the test. In the first trial, you are to administer the Stroop
test on the 15 male students in 15 minutes and time them
according to how fast they can answer every item. In the second
trial, you are to do the same with 15 female students. After the
trials, you need to tally the scores of each groups and the
total time output. Lastly, you are to compute for frequency
using the appropriate formula.
