    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
    Lame 4 marks it was.

    Mann Whitney U
    Ok fair enough! I put Mann Whitney but I always associate it with interval data not ordinal

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


    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?
    Yes loved that paper! But it specifically said "she wasn't a believer but she volunteered anyway" - something along those lines. But I did write something about the researcher being a believer and thus causing bias by being more encouraging towards poor Margaret, bless her soul

    I got completely confused when it asked why the researcher's used a one-tailed hypothesis, because they had already asked for a directional hypothesis and it was a new anxiety management programme, so I just assumed I remembered one and two-tailed hypothesis the wrong way round. Put something along the lines of 'as there was no previous evidence indicating a direction'. Yay.

    How was it ordinal data? It's definitely interval. My textbook even gives an example of test scores as interval data, which is similar to anxiety scores.

    It was so *****y biological therapies came up barely did any revision on it. Addiction and research methods were okay.
    what did you write for the 10 mark media influences on addictive behaviour? I felt like there wasn't a lot to write apart from the study Sulkunen did.

    I talked about things like relapse rates, side effects such as tardive dyskenisia, not treating the real cause (could be EE)

    For depression did anyone just write about one explanation, because it said "one or more"? I just wrote in depth about Beck's cognitive model including the cognitive triad, negative silent assumptions and faulty information processing. I didn't write anything about the psychodynamic theory because I didn't have time and I thought well it says you can write about only one so I'll just write about one explanation. Will I get partial performance for only writing about one? Concerned as many people I spoke to wrote about Beck's cognitive model and a bit about the psychodynamic theory!
    one is fine! every mark scheme for one or more says to be aware of a depth/breadth trade off, so if you did one in loads of detail you can still get full marks☺️

    Write a consent form for parents (5)
    What is reliability and internal validity (2)
    How can the researcher assess the internal validity of the questionnaire (3)
    Why did the researcher use a one-tailed hypothesis (1)
    Is the calculated value of T= 64 (or 63) significant (3)
    Statistical test (4)
    Why is it important to have a control group (3)
    Why did the researcher randomly allocate students to conditions (2)
    How could the researcher randomly allocate the students (2)
    Draw a suitable graph for the data (4)
    What is a matched pairs design? How could the researcher of done a matched pairs design (2+2)

    Omg really mucked up on a 2 mark question for the direction hypothesis. I put - the higger the students score on the questionnaire, the greater anxiety levels they will have.

    So annoyed at myself cause every own wrote about the 6 week programme :/

    Tbh i forget the names so I made the names up
    I did a study on promotion and said that tv promotes smoking and I evaluated the study on it.
    I then said gambling is shown as being posiive on tv (good reactions of winning lottery) and we have lottery advs that advertise gambling
    Then he quit smoking because of promotion and then I outlined a study then evaluated it

    Then I did quite a lot of a02 and spoke about other factors such as out genetics which could have made him because addicted and then also our environment

    Hr could have started gambling because he was poor and wanted some money...
    SO basically I spoke about it being reductionist.

    Idk if i did good on it or not lol
