An example of a 10 mark question in CIE AS level Psychology Paper 1 is:
Evaluate one of the studies listed below in terms of its contribution to the nature-nurture
debate.
Held and Hein (kitten carousel)
Bandura et al (aggression)
Nelson (children’s morals)
Examples of possible evaluation points in the marking scheme:
Held and Hein
• shows visually guided movement (paw placement) is determined by nurture
• ditto depth perception
• some perceptual skills are pure nature, e.g. visual pursuit, change in pupil size, paw placing
(on horizntal surface)
• but kittens are mobile much earlier than humans – are the findings generalisible?
My question is, how should I expand on these points? I'm finding that difficult because I'm not sure what would be considered relevant to talk about.
For example, for the first point should I talk about the steps that took place before it was conluded that visually guided paw placement is determined by nurture?

Hey, you start with the method, and the kind of method, the evaluation points that would have loopholes, such as apparatus, sampling techniques (unequal, gender bias, ethnocentric) they could be the limitations and then the controls (could be the strengths)

Hope that helps!
