Evaluating Bickman

Evaluating Bickman

The starter activities link to research methodology and get students to think critically about questionnaires. Then this lesson follows on from the core study. It allows you to teach the main weaknesses of the study and ask students how they can expand on them. Students should then try out a 13 mark question or write about how the study could be improved.
