I've been looking at Loftus and Palmers eyewitness testimony study and was looking at past papers but I can't find the answer to this uestion (It might be good for my notes). Would someone mind helping me with this:

1. From the study of Loftus and Palmer's eyewitness testimony outline two features of the procedure that were standardised?

AAARRGHH Loftus takes up like 40% of my EE.
define standardised and I can probably help you.

that sounds like an outrageous request, but I'm an idiot.

surely just look at the procedure, and find things that would be necessary for the study to be replicated successfully? things that are standarised, like in a questionnaire study, the questionnaire would be standardised i.e. each one the same.

so maybe...they showed all participants the same video.

Think "squeak" has it there.
This is the "weapons focus" test isn't it? where some get shown a gun, some get shown a piece of paper?

If that's right, then yeah. They got shown the same videos, got asked the same questions etc.
I hate loftus, even though the woman's pretty clever.

hope that helps

it's a guideline, but it's not the exact way to qualify standardised procedure.

some definitions of SP:

Standardised procedure occurs when the researcher ensures that all participants have the same experience. For example, they are all tested in the same way, under the same conditions and so on. This is a type of control as it is ensuring that confounding variables, such as the setting of the study, do not affect the dependent variable.

Read this paragraph, explains it very well.

no I'd say setting and age are more ecological validity issues...

think of it within this study setting. read that paragraph about standardised procedures again.

Yes, good the same video must be played, because it's making sure the participants have the same experience. What else makes sure they have the same experience? like..were all of them given a questionnaire to answer the questions on the speed? or were some asked by an experimenter, others asked by questionnaire. Standardised procedures, aim to get rid of investigator effects. Were the participants given instructions by the investigator in person, or were the instructions written down for the particpant to read?

The study being a lab experiment is a way that it is standardised as they controlled the environment meaning if they needed to replicate the study they can use the same environment.
