APPROACHES
1. B (can't remember for sure )
2. D (can't remember for sure)
3. Role of unconscious mind - i said biological drive and instincts can be accessed through dreams (not sure)
4. Tiger cleaning spray & rugby player stem and mediational processes = attention, retention, motor reproduction & motivation
5. Rugby player & male viewers = identification
6. 4568-2522/2522 x 100 to 2 significant figures is 86%
7. How to make women buy Tiger spray = Women athlete in the advert that women identify with.
8. Wundt's role in emergence of psychology as a science = 8 Mark
AO1 = first lab study, introspection & structuralism, metronome and standardised procedure.
AO3 = some aspects scientific as standardised procedure, some aspects not scientific because self-reporting so subjective.

BIOPSYCHOLOGY
1. i put ERP but it's fMRI (?)
2. B
3. C
4. A
4. Glands & hormones but don't include adrenal gland or adrenaline = thyroxine and thyroid gland.
5. ESSAY with stem about Kieron & Sam. QS - Hemispheric Lateralisation and/or Localisation.
AO1 = Sperry split brain and the description task with the left and right visual field, definition of hemispheric laterlalisation. Localisation could also be used but i used HS more but did use the holism aspect of it to contradict what Sam said.
AO2 = use stem = Kieron = 'speech & lang is left', Sam = 'no, silly! all parts of the brain work together' -__-
AO3 = sperry's standardised procedure, research support, can't generalise because epileptic patients and sample small. I also used law of equipotentiality with stroke victims to contradict Sam.

RESEARCH METHODS (HELL)
1. consistency
2. B
3.
4. non directional the difference also not done before idk etc....
5. write the hypothesis include DV and IV!

CAN'T REMEMBER ORDER
  • What tp match the EVs on ? I put age but gender works too i think
  • How is the validity affected by the researcher knowing which participants are in which group and how to fix this? = investigator effect and to fix double-blind or change the researcher for that step.
  • strength of using matched pairs instead of repeated measures = participants matched on a variable thats relevant to study so high validity
  • Sign test s value = 3
  • N = 8 and the critical value was 0 so not significant
  • Concurrent validity = score compared to a pre-existing test
  • Stat Test = Mann Whitney as ordinal, non-parametric, and unrelated design also testing difference between happiness between condition A and B.
  • Design = had to include aim, IV, DV, CVs, EV = noise ? and how to prevent, I said bar chart with separate keys because discrete data ... i wasn't sure.

Hope it went well for everyone !

question 2 of research methods was B. Peer review does actually award funding but they publish all eligible results regardless of statistical significance!

As a control, I wrote to make them do a presentation but not to let them choose the topic as it will make their happiness level increase for both conditions lol

was the sign test not 1 because the data on the table already calculated the difference?
Also why is it ordinal data when the same test tht was used used sign and so it mustve been nominal data?? so losttt

Think you might have accidentally used a female score because I got 26% before realising and changing it to 86

Did any other human on this planet put unrelated t test for the stats? It said score on a happiness questionnaire rather than a happiness rating, and as it’s a test score I thought it would be interval considering there are equal intervals? It’s probably wrong but thought I’d put it out there.

wasn't Q1 in biopsychology fMRI? because it asked specifically about the areas of the brain / structures in response to stimuli?
