    Im not sure how to go about doing the results.
    Im writing in a format of what is expected to happen, so how do i put down the results ? do i make them up / predict the results of what im using in my statistical test and what the p value will be?

    Hi,

    If you're writing a research proposal you won't need to write the results. You'll need the introduction section, with background reading and hypotheses, and the methods and procedures sections (participants, design, measures, procedure, etc), but instead of actually writing a Results section you might want to use a 'Proposed Analysis of Data' section.

    So in the proposed analysis of data section, you would be able to write how you intend to analysis your results and what methods you will be using. E.g. 'Once the data is collected, descriptive statistics will be obtained, including... [mean, standard deviation, etc]', and then e.g. you might further write that correlations and multiple regression analyses will be computed using SPSS, and stating the variables, for example. This is obviously just an example, but can be changed to be relevant for the type of analysis you would be using.

    You might also want to re-state your hypotheses there, and state that hypotheses will be tested at the 0.05 level of significance, for example.

    I hope this helps a bit.
