    If it was ordinal what did u say the test was then?
    Posted from TSR Mobile
    still a Mann Whitney u test, you can get the mark for saying 'at least ordinal' or 'more complex than nominal' rather than specifying ordinal/ ratio/ interval

    I wrote that the scores would be lower after the programme but then I thought it might be wrong so I wrote "or..." what would I get for that? 0? Or would they mark the first answer?
    You had to state one direction so if you wrote 'or' I don't think you'd get the full two marks. I'm not entirely sure!

    Yes! How many methodological problems of the Ganzfeld procedure did you include in that second question?

    Of course you would, the data was not continuous. If your bars touched then you've definitely lost a mark and probably should go back to AS and learn how to express discontinuous data.
    I think you need to go back to GCSE maths and learn how to learn from mark schemes, baby girl x

    For the one tailed hypothesis reason, am I the only 1 who put its because previous research already suggests the direction of the difference...?

    for the question on why the particpants was randomly allocated to each conditon? would it be to avoid treatement bias? could this be a sufficient answer?

    I put the hypothesis is directional which can be backed up with evidence from previous research

    Yeyaa, how'd you find the questions? I was quite pleased with them

    (Original post by Jadejadejade16)
    Yes! How many methodological problems of the Ganzfeld procedure did you include in that second question?
    I felt the questions were quite nice ones woo 🎉 How did you feel? I literally tried to eek out everything I could find haha! From what I can remember I put the sheep-goat effect because she's a believer, the fact she volunteered herself, only having them in different rooms and not sound proof or electromagnetically shielded, playing white noise through the headphones (just incase ahha as they didn't state anything would be playing through them), having the sender choose the image instead of being randomly chosen by computer, use of the researcher giving the cards to reciever (I.e he could pass on info with a bent corner for example), only using one person and the file drawer effect by choosing the 'hits' that occurred during the several trials but overlooking the 'misses'. Literally just brain vomited everything in my brain onto the paper in hope they'll find some marks haha. How many did you put?

    Oh GOD I wish I never read this I thought the last section was taking about repeated measures?! I was in such a rush I must've read it wrong Does anyone remember how many marks were based on the matched pairs bit? Was it just a 2+2 or was there another 4 marker before it? Desperately needed to smash research methods as everything else went sh*t I am guttedddd... goodbye uni

    Spearman rho ? I thought it was correlational but at least Mann whitney and Spearman are both ordinal and independent groups, that's what I mean would I be able to get marks or not?
    No you wouldn't because u had to get the test right for the justification marks to be awarded! Says on this mark scheme for a different paper-
