    Hey guys,

    I'm really confused on what exactly is ordinal data. I know it's data that can be put in rank order so it's mostly data from likert scales. But I'm doing this past paper: http://www.ocr.org.uk/images/63506-q...psychology.pdf

    and it says that my practical project must use independent measures design and ordinal data. I chose option G "Are people asked a leading question more likely to give a wrong answer than those not asking a leading question?"

    What leading likehart questions would you give the participants and it must ask for facts not opinions? (so they get the answer wrong)

    Help! I can't find the mark scheme for this either!

    Hey lovely! Ordinal data is data that you can RANK. So it's something that you usually get a score for. For example out of ten.

    You could ask closed questions, like true and false. That may be easier.
    Stupid stuff like: A horse has 5 legs, true or false. As a leading question.
    Does a Horse have 5 legs, true or false? As a not leading question.

    Sorry for the super lame examples. Hopefully I helped?
    And good luck for your exam!!

    Thanks! I thought it was to do with scores. They weren't lame at all. That was very helpful
