    A set of instructions to allow someone else to carry out your study in the same way as you have.
    Including things like brief/debrief and any materials you have used, and that sort of thing.
    At least, thats what i hope it is!

    ??? No you're on the right lines. If you're doing AQA A2 Psychology then your standarised instructions must go in the appendix, this is what my draft looked like:

    In matierials used section:
    (The clip was taken from the film Matrix Reloaded. Standardised instructions (see Appendix 2) were set each time the experiment took place)


    Appendix 2: Standardised instructions

    Standardised instructions (statement 1)
    “As a psychology student I am conducting an experiment, specifically testing on memory. If you do not wish to take part it’s still not too late, so please indicate now whether you wish to discontinue participating. You will now be view a video clip after which you will answer a few questions.’

    After video clip is shown (Statement 2)

    “You are now required to answer a few questions regarding what you have just watched. You have a time limit of two minutes. There is no need to put your names on your written paper as all results will be kept anonymous. No conferring with each other is allowed; you may now turn over your question sheet and begin answering. Thank you.’’

    After 2 minute time limit (statement 3)

    “You are now required to sit in silence until all the papers have been collected.”


    (In the control section i stated: The same standardised instructions were used every time which reduced the effect of the experimenter on the performance of the subjects)
