PSYCHOLOGY
Asked by Alizeh

Hello sir my question is how will we identify from evaluation points that it is strength or weakness of a study (i am currently doing paper 3 of psych and i need help in evaluation?

To identify strengths and weakness of a paper you need to consider these things: STRENGTHS: 1) Is the Study Valid? —> look at the date of the study? Is this a study that was done many years ago, and could their findings be applied to this day and age? Are their findings replicable? So, could you repeat the study and get the same results? Did they use a large/variety of participants? WEAKNESS: 1) small sample size 2) unreliable study 3) study results are not valid 4) did not identify other causes/avenues of the study 5) limited geographical location - (did the study only test people in one country? Would it be the same result for other parts of the world?)
