    My learning observation was something about looking at gender differences in car sizes - I talked about inter-rater reliability being an issue
    That was mine too
    I said we used chi squared, p<0.05 probability results are due to chance less than or equal to 5%. It was a test of difference with nominal data, independent groups. Observe value greater than critical value.

    Subjective interpretation of car size
    Improved through inter rater reliability - use a partner to compare results with, if results are similar, it is reliable

    Nice! However, I argued there wasnt any significant difference since I guess you can argue it both ways

    I just made it up, I made up the critical and observed value too. What other subjects do you do? I do geography, biology and chemistry

    From what I remember, you dont need to know the observed or critical value, however its fine if you stated it. I also do geography! which exam board are you on? Im on Edexcel

    Aqa! I'm confident with geography though, I'm predicted an A* - it's a lot easier than psychology!

    Unit 3 - child and criminological, I find unit 3 easier than unit 2. I've done well in mock exams for unit 3 it's just a lot more straightforward.

    Unit 4 - eww, it's so much information I'm not very good at it. Mocks have gone ok... But I'm hoping unit 1,2,3 compensate for my unit 4 poor performance.

    How about you?

    We're doing Child and Health, I find child pretty good as its straightforward like you said. Clinical side of unit 4 I think its decent but issues and debates I hate it so much information
