- the participants (include how you selected your sample of participants)
-the design (Independent and dependent variable) and the procedure
-your findings
-your conclusions
(5 marks altogether- so dosen't need to be detailed)

Introduction:- (10 marks)
Mention:
-show what is meant by atypical behaviour
-in-depth discussion of negative attitudes to atypical behaviour (include research findings) what are these attutudes? how people with mental health are subject to discrimination etc..

Experimental Hypothesis Non Directional: the knowledge of someones mental health history will influence another persons judgement of them as measured by a social distance scale.

Null Hypothesis: The knowledge of someones mental health history will not influence another persons judgement of them as measured by a social distance scale. The results are due to chance or other random factors.

Sorry it took me so long to reply! I'll be faster in future!

Also remember your contents page and number the pages, apparently that gets you an extra mark!
The race is long, and in the end it's only with yourself.

hey yeh am doing psychology too.. we have to go to the nearby uni to do it. we have only just handed in our research investigation, our teacher is such a bad one but she seems to have literally disappeared so we have got a new teacher and she is so good,she thought we were so far behind we werent going to be able to finish, we were supposed to be doing 2 of the units for the optional choice in the exam so we could choose, but basically because we dont have time we are only doing one.
I did the effect of chunking on the short term memory for my investiagtion i found it quite easy to write about

We're onto our THIRD lecturer now! Haha, it's such a mess. We're so far behind.

Does anyone know if we'll get penalised for going over the word limit? (Say writing about 2500 words when the recommended number is 1500 - 2000)

Also, will we be penalised if one section (such as the introduction) is quite a bit shorter (like 100 or 200 words shorter) than what was recommended?

My report is completely rubbish.

I dont think it does matter alot of my class have between 2200 - 2600, n our teacher never said anything to us about it, if you do. Not sure about the intro dont think it will matter not as if they are going to sit and count, itl jus be a rough estimate so unless it looks like there is nowhere near 200 words then i wouldnt worry too much!!
