    Hey, anyone out there doing higher level psych be able to help w research methods? I've been given a PPQ to do for homework, but seem to be missing some notes!
    Question is "using 2 examples, examine the advantages & disadvantages of each of the following: a) small group interviews (focus groups) b) one-to-one interviews"
    Anyone give me some idea of an example of a focus group? What exactly is the question asking for by that?
    Thanks X

    a focus group is the group of people you'll be using in your experiment...like women over the age of 50 or children between the ages of 5 and 9...it's mainly to show how your results will be different because of the specific people you will be observing
    PPQ? what's that?

    I'm guessing a past paper question.
    Is it a short answer question? How many points is it worth?

    5 marks per question. So it obvious doesn't need to be too detailed. And yeah, PPQ=past paper question...I'm just lazy!
