    Hey guys,

    So my evaluation points seem limited for Meltzorff and Moore 1977 and Reciprocity and International Sychrony. Could anyone give me any others apart from:
    Failure to Replicate
    Opened lines of enquiry
    Problems with testing infant behaviour
    Individual Differences

    Many Thanks,

    Hi,

    The evaluation points you have so far don't seem limited at all, as long as you can back them up with research/evidence and explain why each one is a strength/limitation.
    Another one you could use is that controlled observations capture fine detail. The infant and the adult were both filmed from multiple angles, which meant that very fine details of their behaviour could be recorded and later analysed. In addition, the babies were unaware that they were being observed and filmed so their behaviour did not change due to this (usually in observational research, the participants know that they are being observed and so tend to act different to how they would normally).
    This is a strength because it means the research has good validity.

    We don't know if the infants imitations are deliberate or conscious.

    Controlled observations are good because infants can't fake their reactions however, caregivers can.

    Feldman (2012) explains that syncrony and reciprocity simply describe behaviours that happen at the same time - it doesn't tell us their purpose.

    Supports the nature side of nature-nurture.

    Thank you so so much for your help!
