2. Extraneous variables (Research Methods)

(0)
This is the second lesson in the topic of Research Methods in the AQA GCSE Psychology course. I don’t deliver this topic all in one go, I interleave the lessons throughout the other topics. If you are teaching the whole topic in one go, I have tried to make the whole series of lessons about the same imaginary investigation for some consistency. The lesson covers formulating an aim, null & alternative hypotheses and independent & dependent variables in psychological studies and investigations. LO1: Define the term ‘extraneous variables’. LO2: Identify extraneous variables in research studies. LO3: Explain the importance of standardised procedures and randomisation. The activities include taking the students through the beginnings of a plan for an investigation or study. There are lots of worked examples, notes and practice questions.
