    When asked about a 10 marker which talks about evaluating the reliability and validity of a study? what type of things specifically do I talk about? same with evaluating the validity or reliability of how the DV has been operationalised?

    Reliability
    - Does it produce quantitative data?
    -Does it have Mundane realism?
    -Can it be replicated

    Validity
    Internal validity - Can we establish case and effect? So... is the IV causing the DV? We need to be sure there are no EV's. So it needs to be controlled/ lab etc.

    External validity - is it eco valid?
    -naturalistic
    -Any chance of social desirability? (based on self report)

    Can anyone suggest a specific structure to ensure full 10 marks for example,
    + Reliability
    - Reliability
    +Validity
    - Validity ?

    Mundane realism is to do with ecological validity not reliability. Reliability it just how standardised an experiment is to get consistent similar results.

    I got event sampling because it was observational study. Is it right?

    The second last question was what would you change about your method still keeping it self report, something like that. What was the answer there?

    It was asking about how the sample was selected, so it would have been opportunity sampling because they used whoever was on the bus, I think.

    Yeah I put opportunity- it seemed to also lead on to the next question nicely too (which is the one you're talking about)

    The question was asking for the sampling method, it was an obervational study and there are only 2 sampling methods in observational study - time and event sampling.

    To be honest, they could give the mark for either. The sample of participants was selected with opportunity sampling, the data was sampled using event sampling. The question didn't seem clear on which it was asking so they may accept either.

    I hope so because I don't want to lose 6 marks by talking about opportunity! But if it said method apparently that means event/time sampling and technique refers to opportunity?

    For the second last question what did you change about your method?
