Hello. You might want to use the existing results of research studies as fodder. Accurately rewrite the survey results in your own words as far as possible on a Word document or by hand. If using Word make sure it is in black only.
For this kind of coursework question, the ability to talk about and provide information on the actual research study is being rather subtly assessed here. Also the other key important skill that is being evaluated is the very important ability to independently use the information which is taken from the published study results in order to answer the original question honestly.
Other skills include reading beyond the lines of the actual question to pick up on the hidden information that is contained within the question. Make up some brief notes to use as a source of fodder for your task in addition. Assess the pros and cons of the research too in case and pay close and careful attention to the total number of marks that is awarded for the question. Aim to at least write one concisely developed paragraph in response to the set coursework question as part of your essay. Your essay needs to really ebb and flow smoothly. One paragraph can be used as a short mini introduction, the other ones must concentrate more on the topic for the whole essay in question. Use the really useful point example and describe technique.

Hey!

The information given in the post above is not necessary so please ignore.

In simpler terms, you need to split the question into 4 marks for AO1 and 4 marks for AO3.

To achieve full marks for AO1 you need to give 4 points about the effects of leading questions. Do not waffle and make sure you are answering the question!

To gain full marks for AO3 you need to give two evaluation paragraphs in point and explanation form. Do not worry about writing out the whole PEEL paragraph. It would be great to have one strength and one weakness but if you can’t think of one each, feel free to do 2 strengths or 2 weaknesses.

Does this make sense?

If you want, you can post a picture of what you have written up and I will happily look over it and let you know how many marks it will be. Bear in mind that I’m still an A-Level student in year 13. I’m not a qualified teacher!
