My teacher just set this essay but gave us no clue on how to plan it or what to write about/include. Please help!

The essay is made up of two part, first part:

Delia has heard somewhere that the number of horror films watched may be linked to the number of frightening dreams that people have. She has decided to carry out a correlational study to investigate this. Describe how Delia might carry out her correlational study.

second part:

And describe 2 strengths and weaknesses of using a correlational design in psychological research.

both are worth 6 marks individually.

please and thank yous.

Strengths: allows for simple observation of variables, valuable in situations where it would be difficult to directly manipulate a variable

Weaknesses: correlation doesn't prove causation, doesn't account for confounding variables
