Postby Gems08 » Wed Mar 12, 2014 10:15 pm

I have choosen Field experiment and Labortory experiment but only a few deatils of this online.

Don't pack it in, and don't panic about the deadline! Ask you tutor for an extension, and ask for some help/guidance. I don't tutor on it, so I can't help specifically, but your tutor will!

Good luck

Hi,

When looking at these research methods is it useful to locate relevant research that can provide your answer with some context.

Lab Experiment - look at Loftus and Palmer - Eye Witness Testimony for an insight into this research method
Field Experiment - look at Pilliavin and Pilliavin - The Good Samaritan

The above studies will help you understand these research methods.

Thank you both for your advice, i have been given an extension and have been able to make sense of TAQ 1 but really think i spent too much time on it.

I am waiting on advice from my tutor regarding TAQ 2 as i am completely baffled so i have moved on to TAQ 3 for now.

Could either of you advise whether the advantages and disadvantages should be bullet pointed or a complete explanation? If you know what i mean.


Thank you again.
