  • 2. Research question : Does gender affect how good someone is at maths? Independent variable : (how many conditions are there?) Gender: Condition 1 = Male, Condition 2 = Female Dependent variable : (how will you measure the behaviour?) Maths ability = score on a maths test What are the possible hypotheses? Males will do better on a maths test than females Females will do better on a maths test than males Gender will make a difference on the scores achieved on a maths test
  • 3. <ul><li>Research questions : Write hypotheses for the following: </li></ul><ul><li>Do girls talk more than boys? </li></ul><ul><li>Does lack of sleep affect reaction time? </li></ul><ul><li>Do higher temperature make tomatoes grow faster? </li></ul><ul><li>Does age affect short term memory? </li></ul><ul><li>Do higher prices mean less people travel on trains? </li></ul><ul><li>Does TV affect people’s level of intelligence? </li></ul><ul><li>Do rewards or punishments affect attainment on a quiz? </li></ul><ul><li>Does noise level affect performance on essay writing? </li></ul><ul><li>Do sweets have an impact on children’s attention span? </li></ul><ul><li>Does snoozing have an impact on people’s time skills? </li></ul>

Choose one of the following: </li></ul><ul><li>An experiment that tests our use of schema’s - similar to the one on page 36, but which uses a different ambiguous-figure </li></ul><ul><li>b) An experiment that tests our schema’s – similar to Brewer and Treyens </li></ul><ul><li>Remember – you will need to identify the following: </li></ul><ul><li>Aim </li></ul><ul><li>Independent variable </li></ul><ul><li>Dependent variable </li></ul><ul><li>Hypothesis </li></ul><ul><li>Experimental design </li></ul><ul><li>Sample (participants – where will you get them from?

  • 7. What are controls? Why do we need them in experiments? <ul><li>Tasks : </li></ul><ul><li>Read page 39 and do the following </li></ul><ul><li>Write a definition for control </li></ul><ul><li>Give reasons why we need controls </li></ul><ul><li>Give examples of some things experimenters control for </li></ul><ul><li>Suggest some controls for Brewer and Treyens’ experiment </li></ul>
