Hi Liquid

I did A2 Psychology and should be able to help you...

Bandura's study can be used as both A01 and A02, depends what you write and how you phase your answers in essay.

So if you describe what Bandura did and his results (i.e. He got 3 groups of pre-school children and watched movie with different endings (Rewards, punishments and neutral) etc) that will be A01

But if you are using Bandura's result to support Social Learning Theory, then it would be A02, e.g. The fact that pre-school kids in group that watched video where the models got rewarded behave most aggressively against the crowd, support SLT because it highlight how we learn by vicarious learning, as those children in the third group witness model getting rewarded, they will initiate the behavior to try to gain the reward themselves.

If you evaluate Bandura's study that can always be A02, but remember to always link it back to SLT.

Does that make sense?

Best of luck toward your A2 Psychology ----Marvel
