Ender differences in Rumination and Reflection Research Report

Hi...
This order is best suited for someone with a background in psychology and access to the following resource:
Bruce M. Findlay (Bruce Malcolm), 19465th ed.. Frenchs Forest, N.S.W. : Pearson Education Australia 2009

This order is a research report aiming to analyze gender differences existing in rumination and reflection. The report is to be compiled from the following sections:

Title page (see Findlay 2004 for example)
Abstract
Introduction
Method
Results
Discussion

Below are specific instructions on each section plus you will find a 5 attachments necessary for this report.
Further, the report must be formatted according to the specifications outlined in Findlay (2009) and the Publication Manual (5th edition) of the American Psychological Association. So to best understand how to structure and write this research report it is necessary to access, study and consult Findlay (2009) for guidance:


Before looking at the report sections please read attachment 1 as it explains the overall research report aim.

Abstract: (120 words)
The abstract should be a summary of the rationale, method, results, and conclusions of the report..

Introduction: (800 words)
The introduction is already written but needs to be revised and adjusted to work well with the rest of the report. You will find the introduction in attachment 2. Above the introduction will be a few notes on what the introduction lacks and points it needs to improve. At the end of the introduction you will also find a list of References used and useful for the whole report. Below the references is also a quick method to find those articles online.
So overall please re-write the introduction as best as possible and use the references there for the whole report wherever necessary (you can add extra of course).

Method:
Attachment 3 goes hand in hand with attachment 4(questionnaire sample) and attachment 5 (article by Fleckhammer) and contains the information you will need to include in the method and results sections of your assignment. You are writing a report based on data from a sample of on-campus first year psychology students. The report is written from the perspective of the researchers who undertook the study.
In the method section you need to describe the participants, measures/materials and procedures which were used in the study. The core information has been provided for you, but you will need to format it according to APA format. The important point to remember when writing a method section is that you need to provide enough information for another researcher to be able to replicate the study. You should briefly describe the Revised-Rumination and Reflection Scale (Fleckhammer, 2004) (see attachment 5) which was used to collect the data a this should not be a regurgitation of the information provided to you.

Results:
Here you need to present the results of the study a only present and describe them. There should be no interpretation (i.e., discussion) of the data. The results should be directly linked with the hypotheses (from the introduction). All the means, standard deviations and ranges of the data (descriptive) will be provided to you in the attachment.


Discussion:
The findings of the study should be discussed in relation to the aims and hypotheses presented in the introduction. First, there should be clear statements as to whether the hypotheses were supported. If they were not supported then you will need to discuss potential reasons for this. Keep in mind that you discuss the findings with reference to prior research, in particular, the rumination literature that was cited in your introduction. Any differences between men and women in terms of the response styles they typically use should be discussed in the context of previous research. The discussion section should identify the limitations of the study and suggest possible directions for future research. There should be a final paragraph with appropriate concluding statements about the findings of your research. This is a more global statement than just summarizing the results.

Please let me know if you need futher clarifications.
Thank you
