hello!! for those of you doing PSYA4 do we need to know the 'is psychology a science' debate? or has that been removed from the spec.

as far as i was aware we just need to learn the major features of science (theory construction, hypothesis testing etc...) but not the debate

yh - u dont need to know issues,debates and approaches specifically for unit4
only unit 3.

what u do need to know is the features of science so the things u said and replicability etc etc

thank you so much for the quick reply! a couple more questions,
1) is learning bar graphs/line graphs/scattergraphs sufficient or do we need to learn histograms/frequency polygons
2) for the qualitative data section, do you need to learn the 'iterative' process (consider data, break into units...etc) it's just because i'm looking at a textbook but i'm not sure whether it is referring to the old spec or not

thanks
