    What is an alternative method or improvement for reicher and haslam? this is like the worst study to understand and remember everything for
    here is an answer for you:

    A problem with Reicher & Haslam's study is that it used a self-selected (volunteer) sample technique to obtain the sample.
    This is a problem because the sample that they obtained were all male volunteers and no female volunteers.
    I would change the sample technique by using a oppurtunity sample technique instead of a self-selected sample technique.
    This would be done by gathering up 10 female participants (pp's) and 10 male pp's.
    An advantage would be that the findings can now be generalised to females and males in prison, therefore making the findings more valid.
    However, a disadvantage would be that females may act differently wthin a prison than males as either prisoners or guards.

    thankyou! our teacher said something about how we've got to actually write out a proper procedure type thing like changing it to an observation or self report. Your way seems a lot easier though!

    Well i'm glad to be of some help to someone.

    I was taught this from my psychology teacher in class and she told the class that anything can change in any study but the best examples are; changing the method, data, sample, sample technique, design and the data.

    My psych tutor gave a good way to remember the evaluations of studies:
    G-generalisability
    R-reliability
    A-application to the real world
    V-validity
    E-ethics
    If you know the method of the study this is really good at getting the AO2 marks

    My teacher gave me a good technique for getting full marks on part e and f for section B

    Say what the problem is of the study
    Say why it's a problem
    Say what you would do to improve it
    Say how you would improve it
    Say a strength of the improvement
    Say a weakness of the improvement


    Also i find it useful to do the B,A,M,D,S,P,F,E technique for each study
    So can you just talk about 1 problem and elaborate on it to get full marks? or do we need to mention more than 1 problem (if any) ?

    You need to talk about 1 problem for part e and another problem for part f.

    Our teacher just keeps drumming it into us that for the 8-markers on changes that you need enough detail in your description for someone else to carry out the change, ie what sample size, how are you going to source it, how will you measure the IVs and DVs, what is the task, etc. just like the 10 markers on the PI exam but without the evaluation.

    Reicher & Haslam and Maguire are my two least favourite studies..brilliant! How would you improve Maguire's method? She only really compared brain scans of taxi drivers and non-taxi drivers, no ethics involved or demand characteristics or anything :nothing:

    Any help please?

    Our class' suggestions were to pre-test prospective applicants to measure the effect that the taxi driver training has on the participants, this would show definite cause and effect to corroborate with the correlation in the original study, and you could compare the taxi drivers with other navigation-orientated proffessions like pilots, guides and sailors. Hope that helps I have notes for all 15 studies if you need them.

    Its madness!!
    I mean how da heck am i going to memorise 15 core studies:eek:..
    anyone have a clue what core studies will come up on section B?
    Any tips for revision?
    Are you kidding? I would love to only know 15 studies! I knew roughly 80 for my a2 exam in Jan, and probably another 80 for my June

    (granted I'm on a different exam board. How much detail do you need to know them in?)

    Since the paper is out of 120, it should be one mark a minute. So since section A is 60 marks, 60 minutes, section B is 36 marks, 36 minutes and section C is 24 marks, 24 minutes.
    Or something like that
