An excellent resource which really supports my teaching. I particular have used the Paper 3 stimulus material - they have been a great resource especially the model answers.

InThinking has been a tremendous help for a first time IB Psychology teacher. The students have found the lessons relevant and rigorous. I am very impressed by the variety of materials and writing samples available on the website.

    ERQ: Validity and reliability
    Hi John, It seems that 3 studies were used here, to provide a counterargument. Is this suggested for most essays, to include a counter argument/study to score higher on the Critical Thinking criterion? Or 2 studies would suffice - 1 for...
