    I was wondering whether we get AO2/3 marks for criticising a study that we used as AO2.

    For example:

    Using Zimbardo's prison expt to support the De-individuation theory..then going on to say ''however, this study has ethical issues / is ethnocentric'' etc

    Also, if we do get marks would it be classed as ao2 or ida?

    Thanks!

    Hi, when evaluating any study its classed as A02/3, I think that if its a big issue then it counts as an IDA but I'm not 100% sure

    My teacher constantly goes on about layering evaluation points to boost our A02/A03 mark. It's much easier than having to remember loads of studies for each essay and has helped me go from an A to A* grade

    I normally include around 4 research studies as A02 to support/ refute theory. So in one essay there may be two theories, so two studies for each. I then layer the evaluation for at least one e.g internal validity/generalisation. I also include two IDA's and the research can be used to base them on e.g beta bias or nature v nurture.

    Oh i see, we structure our essays quite similarly then. You've been of great help and good luck in your exams .
