As part of Component 01, students are expected to develop knowledge and understanding of the process of planning, conducting, analysing and reporting psychological research across a range of experimental and non-experimental methodologies and techniques.
Students should be able to look at critical value tables, compare them to observed values and interpret results (including knowing what results are significant for each test).
They should also be able to select the most appropriate statistical tests – identifying which tests are appropriate in different scenarios and justifying why.
It is possible that students could be asked to do a calculation/substitute a value. However, any formulas for the statistics tests would be provided in the exam – students would not be required to calculate a statistical test in full.
We have resources to help support you when delivering this topic, these can be found in the Planning and teaching area of the qualification page. We recommend our workbook.
