Assignment Topic
Personality and coping
Coping involves the use of personal attributes, skills, and social supports to manage stressful and
challenging life circumstances. Proactive coping is a specific type of coping that employs futureoriented
strategies to prevent the negative outcomes associated with potential stressors and to see
them as opportunities for personal growth. An individual’s unique set of personality attributes is one
factor that is likely to be associated with their tendency to use proactive coping strategies. With
particular reference to the Five Factor Model of personality1 discuss how personality relates to
proactive coping amongst university students and critically evaluate the research evidence linking
these two constructs.
Starting References
You must locate and read the following journal articles, both of which are available in the library’s
journal database:
Title: Proactive coping and its relation to the Five‐Factor Model of personality
Authors: Erin Hambrick & David McCord
Journal: Individual Differences Research
Details: Published 2010, Vol. 8, Issue No. 2, Pages 67‐77
Title: The role of the Five Factor Model of personality with proactive coping and
preventative coping among college students
Authors: Casey Stroud, Mary McNaughton‐Cassill & Robert Fuhrman
Journal: Personality and Individual Differences
Details: Published 2015, Vol. 83, Pages 60‐64
*****Note that these references are NOT in APA format. One of your tasks in Assignment 1 will be to
create correctly formatted references for the sources you use.*****
1 Search for the paper by McCrae and Costa (1997) and/or read the section on ‘Trait theories’ of
personality in Chapter 11 of your textbook to find out more about this model.

Requirements and Grading Guide – Assignment 1
In this first assignment you will produce an Annotated Bibliography. It will consist of FOUR references
related to the assignment topic – this includes the TWO starting references plus TWO others you find
yourself through the library. Each reference must be presented in APA 6th format and followed by an
annotation in the form of a 150‐200 word paragraph that briefly describes and critiques the
reference. A video containing instructions on how to write an annotated bibliography has been
provided for you on Blackboard. Examples from previous study periods have also been provided on
Blackboard.
The Assignment 1 submission must contain the following components. For further grading
information see the Marking Rubric for Assignment 1 on page 4.
1. Assignment Title Page ‐ Mandatory
The title page should include the title of the assignment, your name, your tutor’s name, and
the assignment due date (see page 54 in the Findlay writing psychology book for an example
of what your cover sheet should look like). You also MUST include the following statement
acknowledging your understanding of the University’s assessment policy and procedures:
“I declare that in submitting all work for this assessment I have read, understood and agree to
the content and expectations of the assessment declaration.”
2. Bibliography
List your four references (the two shown above plus the two you have found yourself) in this
section. Present the references in APA 6th format.
Each reference must be followed by a 150‐200 word annotation (one paragraph) that briefly
describes the aim of the research, the research design (e.g., experiment, review, metaanalysis),
key research findings/outcomes/recommendations, and strengths or limitations of
the research.
Marks are awarded for including four relevant and credible references, adherence to APA 6th
referencing style, as well as the clarity, accuracy, and overall quality of the annotations.
