STEP-by-STEP: How to do the Final PEP Paper
The final PEP paper should be approximately two or three pages (500-1200words) before you paste it. The paper will include three sections:
PEP Intervention: Write 1-3 paragraphs introducing your PEP, telling exactly what you did and what outcome you were expecting or hypothesizing.
PEP Self-test: Write 1 paragraph describing the self-test you used as a pretest and posttest. Tell why you chose this self-test for this PEP.
PEP Evaluation: Describe the outcome of your Personal-Enhancement Project (PEP). Assess the value of what you did. Write 3-6 paragraphs that answer these questions:
ïƒ‹Do you feel better physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, or in other ways?
ïƒ‹Did the PEP give you improvement on your self-test? Why do you think it did or didnâ€™t?
ïƒ‹What did you like about your PEP? Did you find drawbacks? Would you recommend this PEP to others? Why or why not? Would you do it again? Why or why not?
ïƒ‹Tell whether you would make modifications to this PEP in the future, what they would be, and why you would make them.
ïƒ‹What did you like about your self-test? Did you learn new things about yourself? Did you find drawbacks to this self-test? If so, tell what they were. Would you recommend this self-test to others? Why or why not?
ïƒ‹Give a final statement (can be one sentence or a very brief paragraph) that sums up your overall thoughts and feelings about your entire PEP.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not report the exact results of your self-tests. Tell whether your post-test score was higher or lower than the pre-test score, but do not give your exact scores. Those are only for your personal experience. Keep in mind that even if your PEP did not cause you to improve on your self-test, that information is also valuable. This is the nature of science!
