Perspectives and Behaviour from 15/01/18 Alternative Assessment

Post by Mialois94 »

Hi Guys.
Has anyone done the psychology perspectives and behaviour 'From 15/01/18 Alternative Assessment'? I'm really struggling with TAQ 2, the part in the table where you have to talk about the strengths and weaknesses of the study in terms of data collection. I can't seem to find hardly any information about any of the study's online, let alone the strengths and weaknesses of them. Any advice will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Hi
Sometimes it can be difficult to find original work published in journals without subscribing, this is never something we would expect you to do and would therefore not be required in our assessment or grading of it.
For this question you are being asked about the strengths and weaknesses of the method of data gathering - the method used by a study and this information is usually quite easily accessible. Methods would include case studies, lab experiments, observation, twin studies - for instance. If you can relate some of the strengths and weaknesses you use to the specific piece of research that's good.

Hope this helps - good luck with your assessment
