#### Sign Test Assessment Activity for AS and A level Psychology

(0)
This resource has 2 questions about why we do statistical testing and the reasons for choosing the sign test. The rest of the question give scenarios and the students have to : a) calculate the value of N b) calculate the value of S c) identify and justify whether the calculated value of S is significant. YOU WILL NEED TO PROVIDE YOUR STUDENTS WITH A CRITICAL VALUES TABLE OF S IN ORDER TO DO PART © OF EACH QUESTIONS. Unfortunately I can not attach one here as it goes against copyright law, however, most text books have a critical values table in it, or you can Google one. If you have any questions, please tweet me or leave a comment here. @blonde_pretzel YouTube: Successful Psychology

#### 'Psychflix' Psychology Display. (Films/boxsets that are related to topics in psychology)

(0)
The files include posters for a ‘Psychflix’ display. For each film or box-set there is a short description, the units it links to for A level Psychology and a QR code which takes the student to a trailer for the film or an article. (To scan the QR codes, just open the camera on your phone and point it at the code; most phones will pick up the code and take you straight the link). There are some ‘stretch and challenge’ questions so that students can watch the films while considering an issue such as ‘free will-determinism’ and challenge themselves to answer the questions. Psychflix: I got the font online (it allows you to print off single words) and then printed it out on A3 paper. I cut out the letters and glued them to black card. I then stapled this onto the notice board. YOU WILL NEED BLACK BACKING PAPER FOR YOUR NOTICE BOARD AND A STAPLE GUN. Any probs, please do get in touch via this website or on twitter: @blonde_pretzel or Youtube: Successful Psychology My students LOVE this noticeboard and it generated loads of discussion. I also think it will be great for open evenings as it looks striking and is a good talking point. PLEASE BE AWARE SOME OF THE FILMS ARE AN 18 CERTIFICATE AND YOU DECIDE NOT USE THESE, eg Fight Club and Legend. Thanks for looking :-)

#### Paper2:Humanistic Approach. (PowerPoint, Worksheets, Activities, Test and Answers) A01, A02 and A03.

(0)
The PowerPoint and handouts accompany a teaching video I made on the Humanistic Approach https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r9Z9gVjmNsI. The PowerPoint contains everything for a full 16 mark question on the Humanistic Approach. The PowerPoint follows the structure for the essay. There are some YouTube videos embedded (see notes section for links, and/or hover over the pictures) to help understanding of the Humanistic Approach. It contains A01, A02 and A03 materials to cover everything for the exam and activities for students to do during class to help consolidation of learning. I reference all my handouts in the header which is why the handouts are labelled below: AP09 - a handout of an article from the Guardian with questions to emphasize ‘Conditions of Worth’. AP10 - a booklet for students to complete at home to help consolidation of learning. AP11 - a short answer test (10 minutes recommended) for the start of the next lesson. AP11a - the answer sheet for the short answer test NB I usually have my margins on ‘narrow’ for Word documents. I presume when you download them this will be automatic, but if the formatting seems a bit off, change the margins to narrow and it should be fine.

#### Unofficial exam paper for AS Level Psychology Research Methods, 4th set [24 marks]

(0)
This is the 4th set of unofficial exam papers for the Research Methods Section of AS Level Psychology. There is a stimulus (the same stimulus as the 3rd set unofficial exam paper) and questions (24 marks) for students to answer. Because it’s AS level I have only put 24 marks worth of questions. I am currently making unofficial exam papers for A level that have 48 marks. I have a created a video to help students ‘de-code’ the stimulus looking for ‘clues’ to help them answer the questions. This paper tests: Experimental Method Sampling technique Operationalisation Independent variable Random allocation as a control measure Pilot Study Measures of Central Tendency (strengths and limitations of the median) Bar chart Peer Review Validity There is a mark scheme for ease of marking, and/or peer marking. As in the real AQA exam, students should be given 30 minutes to complete the paper. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch either on this website, or via twitter: @blonde_preztel.

#### Exam Style questions AND answers including full 16 markers for MEMORY unit of A Level Psychology

(0)
Most A Level psychology text books have 'Can You' or 'Check It' type questions on each page. These are exam style questions that help you assess your knowledge. I have written answers to typical 'Can You' questions for the Memory Unit of A Level Psychology. If you're a student, try the questions and then check against the model answers. If you're a teacher, you could set the questions for homework and then perhaps get them to do peer marking using the answers as a marking template. Each file attached is split into a different topic from the memory unit and has A01 (describe), A02 (apply) and A03 evaluate questions. There are full 16 markers for each topic in the unit. CYM01 - capacity, duration and coding in Short and Long Term Memory CYM02 - Multi-store model of memory CYM03 - Working Model of Memory CYM04 - Types of Long Term Memory CYM05 - Explanations of Forgetting: interference CYM06 - Explanations of Forgetting: retrieval failure CYM07 - Accuracy of Eyewitness testimony: misleading information CYM08 - Accuracy of Eyewitness testimony: anxiety CYM09 - Accuracy of Eyewitness testimony: the cognitive interview If you have any problems with the materials, please tweet me: @blonde_pretzel I have a YouTube channel that provides teaching and revision for Year1 and Year 2 A Level psychology: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCz5zDmqyZg1mULhgXG96fow Many thanks for using my resources :-)
