Undergraduate Capstone Paper in Developmental Psychology
This research identifies contemporary averages of appropriate age deadlines pertaining to three societal categories of behavior: family cycles, career, and social. Three distinct measures produce both personally- and societally-based age-constraint scores that identify the specific degree to which behaviors are deemed age-related. Results from this study are yet to be analyzed, but research within the existing discipline provides reassurance of the relevance and importance of the topic, including the potential to ascribe meaning to the data laterally across multiple disciplines.
