    i know il probably get lots of " you should do your own homework" posts but please help!

    im doing the aqa baccalaurette with my as levels, and need to do a psych research piece. It can be on literally anything, as long as the research is ethical.

    any ideas??

    IQ tests? Lol not much help....


    Easiest thing would be researching short term memory.

    show 14 words (each for 2seconds), after which ask the subjects to count backwards in threes (i.e. 300,297,294 etc) to eliminate rehersal of words

    then give them one minute to to recall as many words as they can

    I did EWT(eyewitness testimony) Me and my friends directed/filmed a crime (with friends and family as the cast!!) I really enjoyed the making of it, and it always made me laugh watching it-which is needed when you go through the LONG depressing haul of results and discussion :P
    Ok so we showed this homemade crime to participants and asked them a questionnaire on it.
    We wanted to test whether there was a gender difference in memory recall, so we tried to get an equal number of males/females in the leading/control condition.
    - or you could see whether they were influenced by stereotypes
    -Or if your on your own you could to conformity: a replication of Jennes jellybean study??
    I hope this helps, quote me if you want more ideas!!
    Gender difference is a good variable to test, but you need to justify why you think girls/boys are better so RESEARCH before making a hypothesis.

    the bradley effect.. topical and somewhat ethical
    hmmmmmmmmmmm im not very muhc help, sorry
