    FAQs for Internal Assessment
    Hi John, Thanks for your response! She aims to use the Likert scale as her measure of how strongly the participants agree that the baby is 'pretty', 'delicate' etc. But could she measure this instead by having them tick boxes or pictures etc...

    Dear Katarzyna - this is a puzzling learning outcome. It says "two studies" but it can only be asked as an SAQ. I think that this was an error in the guide when it was published. I would have my students only prepare one for the exam.

    FAQs for Internal Assessment

    Social Learning Theory
    Dear Mr Crane, in the text, in the very beginning, you mention that ' this question may only be asked as an SAQ. Therefore, only the two studies are necessary.' For some reason, I keep thinking that for an SAQ we only need one study. Could...

    ERQ: Memory models
    Hi John, is "Levels of Processing" considered to be a model in this case? If not, how many marks could a student gain if they have written about multi-store model and compared it with the levels of processing theory? Thanks, Alex
