Based on the feedback you received on your submission from last week (PERVIOUS PAPER ATTACHED AND FEEDBACK AT THE BOTTOM), submit a revised draft of your paper with this additional information:

  1. Five additional references that could be used for your research paper and include a 1-2 sentence description for each of the five additional references, explaining how they fit with the research topic and the research question proposed. Make sure that these references come from scholarly sources using Argosy’s library resources.
  2. A  very detailed outline of what you would like to cover in the intro/lit review of your paper. Write it as an outline and think about what you want each paragraph or section to cover. Paste your references into each section where the information from that article applies to the topic. Below is an example of the outline although the references have not been pasted in yet:
    1. Introduction or Statement of the Problem (e.g. Predictors of Depression in Men)
      1. Research question (E.g. What factors predict depression in men? For example, age, marital status, family history, stressors).
      2. Why is it important/implications  (E.g. xx% of men are depressed; less likely to seek treatment; if we can identify who is at risk, may be able to direct them to treatment sooner)
      3. Revised hypothesis based on feedback from the instructor
    2. Review of the Literature (the following is an example for above topic):
      1. Brief description of depression, symptoms, and any unique symptoms for men (Cite articles from which you will obtain this information).
      2. How widespread is it? Stats on depression in general but also stats on depression in men (Cite articles from which you will obtain this information).
      3. List factors that put men at risk for depression (Cite articles).
        1. Difficulty communicating distress or sadness (Cite articles).
        2. Job/work pressures (Cite articles).
      4. Demographic characteristics (Cite articles).
        1. Relationship between age and depression (Cite articles).
        2. Relationship between marital status and depression (Cite articles).
  3. A 1-2 page description of the sample you would like to use for your study, that provides the answer to the following questions:
    1. What sampling technique would you use?
    2. Does the sample generalize to the population? Explain why or why not.
    3. What inclusion criteria would be used? What exclusion criteria would be used, if any?
    4. What ethical issues might be encountered when collecting your information from this sample?
  4. Be sure to also submit all your ten references (the five from last week and the five new ones you added) in an APA-style reference page. Be sure to also include an APA-style title page with your submission. Your paper should be at least 2-3 pages long. Make sure you write in a clear, concise, and organized manner; demonstrate ethical scholarship in accurate representation and attribution of sources; display accurate spelling, grammar, and punctuation.

Submit your assignment to the M2: Assignment 2 Dropbox by Wednesday, February 24, 2016. All written assignments and responses should follow APA rules for attributing sources.

Influence of Music on Worker Productivity

Februry 17, 2016

 

In regards to the influence of music on worker productivity, the most important question that people usually ask themselves is whether music helps to increase the work productivity in the work environment. Research conducted on the effects on the work environment prove that music enhances productivity by enlightening the mood as well as breaking monotony in repetitive jobs as well as enhancing creativity and problem solving thus increasing the work focus on the given tasks.

Mariagrace Flint argues that music can increase productivity through a study that was conducted on 70 college students who tried to accomplish two tasks while being subjected to fast and slow music as well as white noise. It was identified that the students listening to fast music accomplish the tasks a little bit faster that the students who were listening to slow music on account of the different music tempos.

Teresa Lesiuk observes that a study conducted on software design companies on the effects of music on the work productivity revealed that better work was delivered when music was playing in the background to the workers. It was also established that work was significantly slower with no music.

On the evaluation of the effects of music in the work environment, Nolan J. McNulty conducts a research on the employees at the student café in Dayton University for two weeks and discovers that there was positive affectivity and enhanced satisfaction in the work environment when music was playing in the background. It was also observed there was a slow workday when there was no music in the background. The research was coupled with questionnaire at the end of each week which confirmed the observations.

A research on the a British high street bank to evaluate the effect of music in the work place lead Adrian North to believe that the fast playing music enabled the workers to be more lively and enthusiastic about their work which is mostly repetitive. Moreover the productivity was increased in these jobs as well as other undemanding jobs not to mention increasing the employee morale. Furthermore, music in the background increased the employee’s willingness to work with and help out each other in the accomplishing their tasks

The Authors, M.K.D. Padmasiri and Dr. K.A.S. Dhammika hold that music evokes the mind by creating a pleasant mood, an increased arousal state and enhances problem solving skills as it influences the way cognitive material is organized consequently inducing creativity. Through this discovery, they argue that music is effective and beneficial in the work environment but may also be viewed as unprofessional. They further argue that as much as it is beneficial, their research also indicate that it may be disruptive in the accomplishing complex tasks.
