There are many sites out there that talk about cognitive experiments, but only one that I know of actually does them - and that is Cog Lab. With Cog Lab, you have students carry out experiments in class, or as homework. It is a good way to get them to see how experiments are done and when done as a class, it is an excellent way to discuss data. Remember that if you are using this site, you cannot use it to carry out the IA. Students will have to make their own version of the experiment and gather their own data. But for ideas of what might be interesting to do for their IA, this is a great place to start.
