Hi guys, I've been struggling on how to make effective evaluation points for psychology. The exam revision guide I'm using (Exam Companion) says that you should use 5 evaluation points, and a "Point-Elaboration-Link" format, for e.g:

There are problems in determining the causal diathesis in this model. Research suggests that stressors in early life setup maladaptive coping methods, so the person is less able to cope with later stressors in life. This suggest it may not be a genetic vulnerability that triggers schizophrenia, but a lack of resilience to stress.

Would this be enough to score 2 marks on an evaluation? Also, when evaluating and providing research support, do I just focus on the findings and not the procedures of the research? Lastly, do I need to memorise all of the researcher's names and dates?

Sorry for the long post

Thanks in advance !

You definitely won't need to remember all the researcher's names and dates - as long you're able to accurately explain the study and and it's findings; saying 'a researcher found X' would be enough If you can remember dates and names, it's obviously better
