You can't replicate the study, but read up on it and other memory realted studies, you'll need them when you write your introduction. I think first of all you should start skecthing out the method you're going to use but by also taking in account the ethical guidlines, think of your target popluation, place, time - i.e afternoon particpants may be fatigued...whether you will use standarised instructions to reduce experimenter bias etc. i handed in my coursework two weeks ago...

if your exam board is aqa you're not allowed to directly copy a study - if it's another board then perhaps you can replicate the study without any modifications.

WaitingToSmile - Does that mean that my provisional plan 4 my coursework of an experiment to test recall by paired associated learning of showing a card with a number on and a card with an animal on would be ok? Or too close to the originals (digits and words) would be ok???

Methinks choosing the topic is by far the hardest part!!

I'm with AQA and I was able to replicate the Brown-Peterson technique with no problems. Obviously I wasn't able to replicate it exactly since I couldn't be bothered to carry it out other than in college. My results were fairly consistent with that of Brown & Peterson's. I got 51/60 for my draft and when I get it back tomorrow or next week, I should have hopefully gained a few marks. There's a possibility that I might have lost marks as well since it is now being marked by these other 2 teachers who don't teach me and I heard that they are strict on their marking. Well, as long as I get 51 or higher, I'm happy.

Thanks Jedi, you've been v helpful!

I think I must be on a slightly different timescale to most...I'm probably panicking a bit early coz my coursework deadline is not til April, tho' I s'pose time will come around soon enough!

Sasha, in answer 2 your comment, I'm not here to copy or pinch ideas, just 4 support and the tiniest shove in the right direction - I'm on a useless home study course which is v unsupportive so I'm really pleased to have found this forum. Crikey, there's too many websites which make it too easy to copy, can't be dealing with that!
