    I think i found some good news. The Debates are usually just asked in the part E questions ! they are not likely to be a whole section B, is this true? ?
    If so then gotta feeling longtidunal/ snapshot will come up
    I would be so happy if longitudinal/snapshot came up, like so happy!

    Use this in order to remember the stats test:

    Nick Is Cool = Nominal, Indepdent Measures, Chi-Sqaured.
    Nick Runs Slow = Nominal, Repeated Measures, Signs Test.
    Nick Must Study = Nominal, matched pairs, signs test.

    Ollie Is Mad= Ordinal, indepdent, Mann Whitney
    Ollie runs wild = orindal, repeated, wilcoxon
    ollie must **** (crude, but you can remember easier :P ) = ordinal, matched, Wilcoxon
    Ollie cant study = ordinal, correlation, spearmans rho

    Irene is itchy = interval, indepdendent, independent t test
    irene runs rapidly = interval data, repeated measures, related t test
    irene must run = interval, matched pairs, related t test
    irene cant punch = interval, correlation, pearsons product moment
    .
    I didn't think we need to know the tests for interval data?

    Yeah we do.

    and also, if you chose to do event sampling if we got observation, youd need interval data tests.

    in the specification it only says sign test, chi square, wilcoxon, mann whitney and spearman

    what advantages and disadvantages are there for using observational data?
    strengths:

    naturalistic so high in EV
    if done covertly low in demand characteristics
    allows researcher to not only see what behaviours occurred but the context in which they occurred too.

    Weaknesses:

    unethical if done overtly. (piliavin )
    problems with coding schemes and behaviours interpreted differently
    behaviour may be observed and interpreted incorrectly (bandura, children might have viewed the behaviour as play, not aggression)

    I have Vrij and Mann, observing criminals behaviour in interviews.
    And Lewisohn, which was social competance in those with depression.

    does anyone think case study may come up?
    i highly doubt it, but OCR like to be annoying.
    if so, how would you go about it?
    and would there be a hypothesis?

    For section A? 99.9% sure they would not ask you for that.

    Say it was like on mental illness my alternative hypothesis would be: There will be significant FINDINGS.

    I'm not sure? someone correct me if im wrong :/ xx

    What is a difference between individual differences approach and cognitive approach thanks!

    Savage,Freud and Thigpen are longitudinal, so does it mean the rest of the AS studies are snapshot?
    What studies are holistic?

    Hmm, thats a hard one! if it were the exam now i'd do this:

    Similar: useful implications, individual differences (rosenhan) highlights how poorly people with mental illnesses are treated, and highlights how practitioners made type I and II errors cognitive (loftus and palmer) can be useful for eyewitness testimonies as provides evidence that our memory is not as reliable as we thought

    Difference: cognitive attemps to explain human behaviour as a whole, and generalises the findings world wide, whereas individual differences attempts to explain the complexity of human behaviour by studying the differences in people.

    second para is really poor, maybe someone else has a better suggestion!

    No, not all of the AS studies are longitudinal (Pilivain is snapshot, people get confused because it was conducted over a 2 month period but there were 103 micro studies within it)

    Holistic studies:

    Thigpen and Cleckley (looked at different ways in trying to cure eve)
    Wiktrom (looked at situational (crimogenic environments) and disposotiional ways (low morality) to explain turning to crime)
