    I have a feeling they'll probably pick an easier study i.e. Loftus and Palmer when it comes to results with a couple of harder ones i.e. Savage-Rumbaugh.

    I hope to god observation isn't in the 12 marker though, anything else is fine I guess - just need to do better than a C this time.
    Me too, but if you want I can help with giving strengths and weaknesses of observations?

    Strengths would include: gathering large amounts of qualitative data, if they are unaware that they're being studied demand characteristics is unlikely to occur, high ecological validity if being observed in a natural environment

    Weaknesses would include: not controlled so its harder to repliacate, hence its unreliable, if they know they're being observed the demand characteristics can occur lowering the validity, biased if they misinterpret what they saw

    This happened in 2014, with lab experiments for cognitive approach- they didn't want you to use savage instead they wanted Samuel and Bryant along with griffiths, so if you think of a study which goes along with the curveball definitely use it!
