    Ok, for my coursework I have done the Loftus experiment where she showed participants a video clip of a car accident and then changed the wording in a questionniare to make them answer differently, for example:
    "How fast were the cars going when they bumped/crashed/collided/smashed into each other?" ... the theory being that the more intense the word, the faster the estimated impact speed. I also used some leading questions on half my subjects, eg:
    "Did you see THE red light" as aposed to "Did you see A red light?"

    NOW I'M STUCK!! I have all the data and figures, butI haven't got the foggiest what to do with them and I'd rather not wait to go back to college next week and tell my teacher that I'm stuck!!

    Someone please help?!!:confused:

    Participant Number Bumped Collided Crashed Smashed
    1 30mph 50mph 70mph 60mph
    2 35mph 60mph 60mph 65mph
    3 40mph 50mph 60mph 90mph
    4 30mph 45mph 65mph 80mph
    5 30mph 50mph 70mph 80mph
