Psych IA Abstract

Recommended Posts

Okay so I'm an SL student and I'm going over my IA for last minute corrections and my teacher counted me off on criterion G because she said my abstract wasn't very good. I'm not even really sure what needs to be in it, so I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions on how to write a good abstract. Thanks for the help.

The abstract should summarize the aim, the method, results and conclusions with some discussion points. The best way to write a good abstract is to look at other abstracts from IAs which you can find on here or my blog (IA section at the bottom). After you've written it you can post it here so we can give you feedback.

Thanks so much. I've attached a copy of my new abstract. I'm not the best writer but I think I have at least most of the information I need. If not I definitely think it is an improvement on my previous one if nothing else. I'm open to any feedback you might have.

Looks good, you should maybe mention the design of the experiment (independent or repeated measures) and also mention why the results did not mirror those of Loftus and Palmer in a sentence and any recommendations for future research to get around any methodological flaws.

Okay thanks so much. We are turning in our final drafts this week and she said that even with my mediocre one I had a projected 6, especially if I were to fix it even a little bit so that helped a ton!. Thanks again for everything.
