IDA Sample Question Mapping Definition Short-Answer Question Evaluation Short-Answer Question Application Essay Compare/Contrast Essay? Short-Answer Questions Definition SAQ: With reference to the item above, explain what is meant by determinism. Refer to three types of determinism in your answer. [6 marks] Evaluation SAQ: Briefly outline one problem associated with alpha bias in psychological research, and one problem associated with beta bias in psychological research. [4 marks]

Application Questions Application: 04 Read the item and then answer the question that follows. A prison psychologist used an idiographic approach to study offending. He asked two offenders to record their thoughts about their childhood and their offending behaviour in a journal over a period of four weeks. Qualitative analysis of the journals showed that the offenders often thought about sad childhood events and believed that their childhood experiences had influenced their offending. Findings from idiographic research like the study described above are often used as a basis for other investigations. Explain how the researcher might develop the above investigation through taking a nomothetic approach. [6 marks] Essays Issues/Debates Essay

Point Difference: Which two approaches are you contrasting? One difference between the psychodynamic approach and the humanist approach is the extent to which they argue that our behaviour is determined. The psychodynamic approach suggests that behaviour is determined by unconscious drives (e.g. the ID) and early childhood experiences, an idea termed psychic determinism. However, the humanist approach suggests that humans control their own environment and are capable of change. Therefore the humanist approach argues that humans have free-will while the psychodynamic approach suggest that our behaviour is determined. Mapping Issues & Debates to Approaches

Why? Nomothetic Approach Experimental Reductionism Milgram conducted his research in the US. Replications in other cultures have shown differences. Measuring personality characteristics (authoritarian personality) using a psychometric approach. Complex behaviour reduced into isolated variables for research. The effects of minority influence in the real world are much more subtle and it tends to take a long time to have an effect.

Socially sensitive as can be see to justify behaviours such as male promiscuity and even rape. 09.2 Attraction Nomothetic Approach Filter theory seeks to formulate general laws of behaviour by suggesting that we all use a series of filters to narrow down the 'field of availables'. 09.3 Romantic relationships Cultural Bias Ethnocentrism Most research into romantic relationships has been

conducted in Western societies. Some research has suggested that equity is not as important in non-Western cultures. 09.4 Duck's phase model Social Sensitivity Carrying out research into relationship breakdown can potentially be intrusive and distressing for partipants. 09.6 Parasocial relationships Nomothetic Approach Use of the Celebrity Attitude scale to identify levels of

parasocial relationship is an example of a nomothetic, quantitative approach. Mapping Issues & Debates in Year 2 Relationships Which Issue and Debate? Why? 09.1 Evolutionary explanations Biological Determinism Social Sensitivity
