DSE212 – tutorial 4

A fourth tutorial already for my psychology course, and we’ve only done two assignments (out of six). This week we were looking at some statistics (what we use and why) as well as experimental design and looking forwards towards the next TMA. This will be a report on some experimental data. Data for 16 people will be provided and we have to provide the data for another 4. It involves a variation on the Stroop effect (the delay in identifying the colour of ink a colour-word is written in when it is contrasting, e.g. the word ‘red’ written in blue ink) which is unfortunate as I think all of my potential participants at Bungay Balls Up will be aware of it and so would mess up my results. I may have to co-opt children who may not be aware, or try the lovely people at Ashton Court parkrun.
