The findings show that after 3 seconds the participants were able to recall 80% of trigrams. As the time progressed, the participants were unable to recall as many trigrams. After 18 seconds, fewer than 10% of the trigrams were recalled correctly. In conclusion, trigrams may not be relevant to everyday life; neither do they reflect everyday memory. It was possible that interference from other trigrams caused the poor recall.
In his opinion, college students should try to find evidence, investigate, and speculate differently about the material they have learned. “In other word college deals with the rational justification of belief” (Meiland). Also college professors should present and examine the basis of the material in order to give basic information to the students. Meiland says “college simply reflects the legitimation of belief by inquiring into the rationality of every belief to find out whether each belief is supported by good reasons”( Meiland). He wants college students to keep
Draft #1 The case against Tom Robinson was unjust. The town of Maycomb retains many prejudices. Because there were serious faults with the jury, there were pertinent incidents that occurred prior to the case not mentioned and most significantly there was evidence that was not thoroughly reviewed; given these circumstances, Tom Robinson did not receive a fair trial. Given certain characteristics of the jury, Tom Robinson was not given a fair trial. The jury took two hours to deliberate, showing that there were opposing views.. At least one juror was opposed to Tom Robinson’s conviction.
Some, not all college students cheat for a variety of reasons and motivations. Cheating however has a negative result despite all grades attained. Methods of cheating vary in creativity. “ Between 40 and 70 percent of all college students have reported cheating sometime during their academic career”. Many students who cheat may not realize the only one that their cheating is themselves.
They found that the estimated speed was effected by the verb used in the question; smashed had the highest speed while contacted had the lowest speed. This shows that EWT is inaccurate due the leading questions which can affect the witness’s answers to things. The same psychologists did another experiment using the same methodology (which was fairly similar) expect they only used two verbs; smashed and hit. After a week had passed they asked the participants to come back and where asked if they saw any broken glass in the video. The group that got question with the verb ‘smashed’ stated they saw glass even though there wasn’t any.
The company has found that about half of the time, the interviewers disagree in their ratings such that some members of the panel give the candidate a high rating, while others give the same candidate a low rating. What is the best way to describe the situation? A. The interview that Organization B is using is not content valid. B.
Part 1 Summarising and interpreting the information in the table drawn on research by Stanley Milgram. ( pg 11 of DSE 141 Assignment booklet) The table shows the predictions by college students and three experimental results one made by the original study and two variations of the experiment. Where the participant learned with co – ‘teachers’ who defy the authority figure (variation 1) and where the participant teamed with co – ‘teachers’ who obey the authority figure (variation 2). ‘Each participant went through identical experimental procedure at which the teacher stopped shocking the learner . The experiment shows that on average level of shock at which teachers refused to continue in volts (variation 2) scored the highest (380), variation 1 scored 240 and 368 by the original study the difference is relatively small with variation 2 being quite high with the predictions made of 140 by the students.
Gave instructions over telephone. 65% went down to 20%. Many Ps cheated and missed out shocks or gave a lower voltage than they should have done. Explain why (AO2) Pressure removed from standing experimenter. Move from agentic state to autonomous state – P now solely responsible for own actions.
Unfortunately they usually make fun them. It’s sad but true. It’s estimated that 3 out of every 100 people are born with some type of mental disability, but yet our society has not yet learned how to deal with this population. Perhaps it’s because the public doesn’t know how to treat these people. It is reported that 3 to 4 per 1,000 people are mentally retarded (Ellis, 1986).
Asch's experiment also had a control condition where there were no confederates, only a "real participant". Findings: Asch measured the number of times each participant conformed to the majority view. On average, about one third (32%) of the participants who were placed in this situation went along and conformed with the incorrect majority on the critical trials. Over the 12 critical trials about 75% of participants conformed at least once and 25% of participant never conformed. In the control group, with no pressure to conform to confederates, less
