    For random sampling; I said assign each child a number, put 'em into a random number generator and select 10.

    Advantage of random sampling over volunteer; more likely to be representative of the target population? Volunteer sampling often leads to sample bias and thus, reduced population validity.

    Ethics question I managed to get all 5 in, bullet pointed though as I was really pushed for time (spent ages on the first few questions due to the massive amounts of space?!)

    Pilot study; check methodological issues, check the nature/number of words were sufficient enough to draw conclusions from, check that the 'learning' time was sufficient, ask participants about experience, ask if they felt they knew exactly what was expected of them etc.

    Avoidant/Resistant question was easy enough?!

    van Iz/K was the only study I used for cultural variation. Again, ran out of time, but put a load of detail in there.

    Strength of SS - highly standardised procedure, so replicable?

    Would be happy to discuss ANY questions anyone has

    Does anyone have the paper? I know some students get given it by their teachers. If so, can you please post pictures?

    For the mother demand characteristics in SS question would saying her interacting with the child more than she normally would in order to look good get me the 2 marks?

    What did anyone write for the pilot study question?
    I put: to check if the participants are given enough time to learn the words, to check if the chosen memory improvement strategy is appropriate, to check if the words are appropriate or something like that. I couldn't think of anything else. And I swear that almost the same question came up in 2013 if I'm not wrong but it was about learning 20 words?

    Anddd one of My evaluation points for Bowlbys theory was that it's gender biased, as it makes fathers seem less important than mothers and how this theory is championed by people who think that "women belong home and men at work" and that this is a very sensitive topic and one perhaps that's been outdated.
    Also, I said how it's simple because it doesn't explain multiple attachments but one as rutter suggested that we have multiple attachment for different figures.

    I would imagine so! She is changing her behaviour to present herself in a positive light. This is known as social desirability

    I thought it was a good paper but think I made a few mistakes, does anyone think it matters that for the EWT I said it was Loftus and Palmer instead of Loftus and Burns (even though I wrote about Loftus and Burns) and also for the memory improvement strategy I wrote keyword instead of pegword, do you guys think this would've cost me marks?

    Great 12 marker though, AO1 - innate, monotropy, sensitive period, internal working model, continuity hypothesis, AO2 - Tronnick, Hazer & Shaver, Schaffer and Emerson and Zimmerman.

    9d I didn't like - only propert wrote about protection and probably dropped a couple of marks there. But overall, it couldn't have gone much better.

    okay so guys for the 12 mark essay on bowlby’s theory i did an outline of the theory with explanations of what critical period, adaptive, social releasers, internal working model and monotropy were, and then used the hazer and shaver love quiz study to support it, and then evaluated the study with 2 positives and two negatives, and then compared bowlby’s theory with the social learning theory a little bit at the end. do you think that’s okay?

    would a limitation of the anxiety on ewt be exposed to stressful situations such as the presence of a weapon so the protection of participant(ethical issue) would need to be considered. Would this get me 2/2

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you may have needed to say how the demand characteristics arise in this situation. Potentially something along the lines of the mother either knowing or guessing the aim of the study due to informed consent.

    Obviously I don't know the mark schemes so don't necessarily trust my word!

    I used notepad and she said i did 3 pages. it was double sided and i filled 3 sides. Could i ask her tomorrow when im giving her the geography answers on the laptop also? or would it be too late?
    I think you would be alright if you go in and ask after the Geography exam. Maybe the font came out a little smaller than you expected. I know that I used size 12 and double spaced each line, as well as each paragraph, and came out with just over 5 pages.

    about the limitation for anxiety in EWT- would explaining how different studies would be somewhere different on the yerkes dodson curve and they wouldn't take this into account be right?

    What did everyone put about defining secure attachment- wasnt sure to say the characteristics or just what it is. i said something about having a strong unbroken bond with 1 parental figure but idk

    completely forgot to write about confidentiality for the ethics question, hopefully informed consent, protection from harm & right to withdraw will be enough!

    Would it be okay if for the 12 marker i wrote;
    Bowlbys theory (including monotropy, internal working model, critical period etc) then supported him with Lorenz's study with the geese and imprinting saying it supports critical period and then criticised him with Genie who was able to reverse the effects of not forming an attachment when Bowbly said it was 'irreversibly broken?' And then evaluated the case study?
    How many marks would you say I gained possibly? i didn't evaluate bowlbys theory because I couldn't think of anything.


    I have a few questions, I'm just still thinking of them lol
