I am doing an experiment to see if there is a link between dyslexia and conformity.
There would be two groups of people non dyslexic and dyslexic people ,
I just need a clear way to measure conformity, I have looked into Solomon asch studies I want something similar to that I cannot use his i fear I would be done for plagiarism
or could I used aschs way and say that is my standardised way .

I did my EPQ on the causes of prejudice and conformity was one of the main factors within it. I also came across the same studies as you. If you possibly put "adapted from research by Asch (1951)" for example, you should be okay. You could adapt it to fit your experiment more. If you were looking at crime it could be line ups of culprits (nevermind the buzzcocks style) or you could have them fill out a memory recall test in conditions where you can easily copy answers and see if the experiemental condition are more likely to copy wrong answers. In the end theres no definitive way to objectively measure conformity but hey, more to talk about in your discussion.
