We look for the following subsections in the Method section of an APA paper: participants (or subjects), measures, and procedures (the latter two are often combined in one subsection). The "participants" subsection should describe the subjects (including total number and their basic demographic information) and how they were selected and categorized.
It should also explain why some subjects were not included.
The Discussion section is an interpretation and evaluation of the findings.
In this section, based on the findings discussed in the Results section, the author should address the issues raised in the Introduction.
The method is very important because it concerns the reproducibility of the research.
Reproducibility, one of the main principles of the Scientific Method, refers to the ability of a test or experiment to be replicated by independent researchers.
The subsection for measures and procedures should specify the equipment and materials used in the experiment, including any questionnaires or surveys.
This section must also describe in detail how the research was conducted.
The results section of an APA paper presents the findings.
This section should summarize the data collected and the statistical or analytical treatments used.
