  3. 3. TASK TIME: 30 + 10 MINSTASK ONE: Constructing revision resources on the topics of experimentsBy the end of this task you should be able to: TARGET TASK _______MUST (Grade E/D):Create revision cards that outline the key points of the experimental methodSHOULD (Grade C/B):Create revision cards that describe the key points of the experimental methodCreate revision cards that identify (P) the key evaluative points of the experimental methodCOULD (Grade A):Create revision cards that describe the key points of the experimental methodCreate revision cards that outline (PC) the key evaluative points of the experimental methodEXPERIMENTAL METHODSGRADE E/D: Outline taskWhat is an experiment?An experiment studies how different things affect something; for example, what music helps a person revise.The most basic form of all experiments is 2 conditions and one thing measuring the effect. In the musicexample this could be the effect of rock music compared to classical music on the number of psychologyterms a person can recall after revising for an hour.What types of experiment are there?There are three main types of experiment; lab experiment, field experiment, and quasi experimentOutline the term ‘Laboratory experiment’A lab experiment is conducted in a controlled artificial environment. It is not conducted in the environmentthat the tasks participants are doing would do them in in everyday life.Outline the term ‘field experiment’A field experiment is conducted in a realistic environment that is not controlled by the experimenter. Theexperiment is conducted in the environment that participants would do them in their everyday life.Outline the term ‘natural/quasi experiment’A natural experiment is one where the IV does not have to be changed by the psychologist as it is naturallydifferent. A quasi experiment can be conducted in a lab or in the field.
  4. 4. GRADE C/B: Description taskWhat is an experiment?An experiment is a research method to see the effect of a variable (called the independent variable) on another variable(called the dependent variable). In its basic form the independent variable is altered in 2 ways. From these 2 conditionsthat are created an experiment records the effect each condition has on the dependent variable. The difference in theresults determines if the I.V has a real effect or is simply down to chance.ExampleThe IV is manipulated the DV is what is recorded to show the effect of the IVType of music effects number of psychology terms recalledWhat types of experiment are there?There are three main types of experiment; lab experiment, field experiment, and quasi experimentDescribe the term ‘Laboratory experiment’A lab experiment is conducted in a controlled artificial environment. It is not conducted in the environment whereparticipants would do the activity in everyday life.To control an environment a psychologist needs to remove as many variables in the environment that could also changethe dependent variable. The psychologist ONLY wants the independent variable to affect the dependent variable.If thepsychologist cannot remove a variable the psychologist will keep it the same for every participant.Describe the term ‘field experiment’A field experiment is conducted in a realistic environment that is not controlled by the experimenter. The experiment isconducted in the environment that participants would do them in their everyday life.This means the psychologist does not change the environment in any way or attempt to stop things happening that arenot part of the study.For a study to be a true field experiment the environment must be believed to be real by the participants.Describe the term ‘natural/quasi experiment’A natural experiment is one where the IV does not have to be changed by the psychologist as it is naturally different. Aquasi experiment can be conducted in laboratory conditions or in field conditions.Natural experiments include the difference between men and women, caucasians compared to ethnic minorities,different age groups and long term expertise. It is practically impossible for a psychologist to choose which group aparticipant would go into in these independent variables; a person will be one or the other regardless of what thepsychologist wants.Identify1 strength and 1 weakness of a laboratory experimentOne strength of a lab experiment is the psychologist can have a lot of control of what happens in the study; it is unlikelysomething may ruin the study.One weakness of a lab experiment is the participants will not believe what they are doing is real; they may not take theexperiment seriously.Identify1 strength and 1 weakness of a field experimentOne strength of a field experiment is participants should believe that what they are asked to do is realistic; they aremore likely to take the experiment seriously.One weakness of a field experiment is the psychologist will not have muchcontrol of what happens in the study; something may ruin the study.Identify1 strength and 1 weakness of a natural/quasi experimentOne strength of a natural experiment is it allows psychologists to study the effects of things that would be unethical tochange. One weakness of a natural experiment is the experimenter does not have control over which participant goesinto which group; one group might be naturally better at something for other reasons.
  5. 5. GRADE A: Outlining evaluation taskWhat is an experiment?An experiment is a research method to see the effect of a variable (called the independent variable) on another variable(called the dependent variable). In its basic form the independent variable is altered in 2 ways. From these 2 conditionsthat are created an experiment records the effect each condition has on the dependent variable.

It is practically impossible for a psychologist to choose which group a participant would go into in theseindependent variables; a person will be one or the other regardless of what the psychologist wants.Outline 1 strength and 1 weakness of a laboratory experimentOne strength of a lab experiment is the environment is controlled; the experiment will be the same for every participant.This is good because it means the study will be reliable and can be easily replicated by other psychologists to show ifthe results happen all the time.One weakness of a lab experiment is the environment is not real. This is bad becausethe participants may not complete the task as they would in everyday life as they are distracted by the artificialenvironment; the study will lack ecological validity.Outline 1 strength and 1 weakness of a field experimentOne strength of a field experiment is the environment is a real, everyday environment. This is good because theparticipants should complete the task like they would in their everyday life, as the environment will not make themuneasy, or abnormally distracted.One weakness of a field experiment is the environment is not controlled. This is badbecause other variables that could affect the DV are not kept the same for every participant; the study’s results may notbe reliable as they cannot be exactly replicated in future research.Outline 1 strength and 1 weakness of a natural/quasi experimentOne strength of a natural experiment is it allows psychologists to study the effects of things that would be unethical tomanipulate. This is a strength as Psychology is often interested in naturally different things that are important ineveryday life; natural experiments are useful.One weakness of a natural experiment is the experimenter does not havecontrol over which participant goes into which group. This is a weakness because there may be other differencesbetween participants other than the naturally occurring one. It means that the effect of the IV on the DV may not be thesame effect if experiment was controlled.TASK ONE: Outcome Review

  7. 7. TASK TWO: Constructing revision resources on the topics of correlationsBy the end of this task you should be able to: TARGET TASK _______MUST (Grade E/D):Create revision cards that outline the key points of correlational data analysisSHOULD (Grade C/B):Create revision cards that describe the key points of correlational data analysisCreate revision cards that identify (P) the key evaluative points of correlational data analysisCOULD (Grade A):Create revision cards that describe the key points of correlational data analysisCreate revision cards that outline (PC) the key evaluative points of correlational data analysisCORRELATIONAL ANALYSISGRADE E/D: OutlineOutline the term ‘correlation’A correlation is how 2 number measurements relate. It is a research technique that looks for relationshipssuch as ‘as x increases so does y’ or ‘as x increases y decreases’Outline the term positive correlationA positive correlation is a relationship between 2 number measurements. It suggests as participants’ scoreson the first measurement increases so do their scores on the second measurement.Outline the term negative correlationA negative correlation is a relationship between 2 number measurements. It suggests as participants’ scoreson the first measurement increases their scores on the second measurement decrease.Correlations on a graphGRADE C/B: describeDescribe the term ‘correlation’A correlation is how 2 number measurements relate. It is a research technique that looks for relationshipssuch as ‘as x increases so does y’ or ‘as x increases y decreases’. A correlation is often used in self-reportsand observations as a way of collecting data. Correlations do not tell a psychologist which variable is thecause and which is the effect, it simply states that they have a relationship.Describe the term positive correlation
  8. 8. A positive correlation is a relationship between 2 number measurements. It suggests as participants’ scoreson the first measurement increases so do their scores on the second measurement. A positive relationshipcan be strong, average or weak. A strong relationship suggests that the two variables increase at almostexactly the same rate. A weak relationship suggests that the two variables increase but at different rates.Describe the term negative correlationA negative correlation is a relationship between 2 number measurements. It suggests as participants’ scoreson the first measurement increases their scores on the second measurement decrease. A relationship can bestrong, average or weak. A strong relationship suggests that the variable that increases increases at thesame rate as the variable that decreases. A weak relationship suggests one variable increases and the otherdecreases but at different rates.Identifyone strength and one weakness of a correlation study.One strength of a correlation study is it allows psychologists to identify relationships between things.One weakness of a correlation study is it does not show which variable is the cause and which variable isaffected by it.GRADE A: Outline evaluationDescribethe term ‘correlation’A correlation is how 2 number measurements relate.

A weak relationship suggests one variable increases and the otherdecreases but at different rates.Outline one strength and one weakness of a correlation studyOne strength of a correlation study is it allows psychologists to identify relationships between things. This is astrength as knowing variables are related can lead to useful applications in everyday life. A simple example isthere is a positive relationship between the number of hours you revise and the number of marks you get ona psychology exam. One weakness of a correlation study is it does not show which variable is the cause andwhich variable is affected by it. This is a weakness as psychologists try to isolate causes of behaviour andalter them to improve them. A simple example is intelligence and learning. If a person spends more hoursstudying then their IQ should increase, but it could also be likely that a person has a high IQ they may wantto spend more time studying.TASK TWO: Outcome Review

  11. 11. Question:Outline one strength and one weakness of the way the dependant variable wasmeasured in the study. [6]Mark Scheme:Answer:A strength of using a scale question in the study is the scores will be numbers. Thismeans it’s easy to compare participants’ scores.A weakness of using the 10 point scale question asking how friendly they thoughtthe staff were is it does not say whythey chose that number. It may not beanything to do with them being touched on the arm. It may be due to the staffmember smilingExaminers Comment:The first point is CORRECT but is not LINKED to the study in the question. The student forgot to say ‘easy to comparethe participants’ opinions of how friendly the staff in the coffee shop was’. The answer also forgets to say whynumbers are easy to compare. The point is NOT CLEAR.The second point is CORRECT and LINKED TO THE STUDY in the question. It is also easy to see the studentunderstands why the scale question doesn’t explain why. The question is CLEAR.The examiners mark: The answer is worth 4 marks, point one is 1 mark and point 2 is 3 marks.
  12. 12. Section B: Correlational analysisA researcher has conducted a correlational study to investigate the relationship between how important aperson thinks appearance is and how much they spend on clothes each month.The first variable was ‘self rating of the importance of appearance’ measured on a ten point scale (where 1 =not important and 10 = extremely important). The second variable was ‘amount of money spent on clotheseach month’ measured by asking people to estimate to the nearest five pounds how much they spent in atypical month.The results are in the table below.GRADE E/D: IDENTIFY AND DESCRIBE QUESTIONS1.
