By smileybby55This is a sample SL Psychology Internal Assessment. It explores if working in groups is more beneficial than working independently.
Aim of this experiment was to investigate the effect of leading questions on the memory, simply
put – how wording of a question can trigger cognitive processes which will modify one’s memory
information. This experiment was a replication of the study conducted by Loftus and Palmer
(1974). In the experiment the independent variable (IV) was the wording of the questions:
“Please estimate the speed of the cars when they contacted/crashed into each other?” and “Was
there any broken glass when cars or contacted/crashed into each other?” The dependent
variable (DV) was the estimation of speed upon memory retrieval (information they obtained
watching the video of a car crash). Procedure was very simple – after watching the information,
there was some distraction period and then they were asked questions which they answered. One
week after, they were asked another question. The results were as expected. They showed that
wording of a question can affect retrieved memory.
Therefore, it can be concluded that this study was in line with the one conducted by Loftus and
Palmer (1974) from which can be derived that words led to specific answer. Hence, answer was
result of reconstructive kind of memory, wording of the question and existing schemas of
NOTE TO SELF:
This is the very first IA in psychology I've ever written, so I'd strongly advise for you to take it as something your IA should NOT look like =))
By GabyIt's an IA based on the Glanzer and Cunitz experiment. I received 24/28 (after moderation, 27 before moderation), which gave me a 7 in my IA.
By dobnadiThis is an awesome help for writing your IA, its kinda like a check list and a guide
