About This Document

This lab report investigates the effect of memory techniques on the ability to correctly recall words. The report includes aims, hypotheses, methods, and results sections. The study aims to determine whether memory techniques such as the method of loci and survival processing have an effect on word recall. The hypothesis is that participants who use memory techniques will have a higher rate of correctly recalling words than those who do not use memory techniques.

[Please find below a template for the laboratory report to be submitted on Monday 8th January2018 by 18:00 (6 pm). The report below is based on a study looking at the effect of memory techniques on the ability to correctly recall words. Below you will find a partially completed lab report with the methods, and results as well as the aims and hypotheses sections complete for you. There are however, two sections missing, and it is these sections that we expect you to complete in line with the teachings that we have provided you over the past few weeks in the lectures and workshops. This template can be found in the ‘Coursework Information’ areaof the 250PY module on Moodle. Below you will find sections of the report already written for you (in the blue Font colour), the sections in the black font colour are where we are looking for you to add the missing details from your additional reading and critical consideration of what the research is covering. Work your way through the black sections replacing the text in black with the relevant details requested (please leave the font colour as black, so we can see what you have added. Everything that is in black will count as part of your word count. Once you have completed each section delete the notes which are in the brackets and italics. Once you have completed the full report please delete this section].

Title [Give your research project a title, which clearly outlines what the study in the week 17 handout was looking to study. For quantitative reports the title needs to incorporate the variables being studied, both the independent and dependent variables. Titles should not usually exceed 12 words] (see slides 5 from the workshop 6 writing the 250PY report)

Abstract:Outline of the study [your abstract is a summary of the 4 main sections of your research report, you are recommended to complete this section last once you have completed the rest of the report. The abstract needs to provide a clear but concise statement of the topic being studied, and in quantitative research needs an outline of the hypothesis, a statement of what is predicted. The abstract should also summarise key aspects of the methods for the study so that the reader knows what was done. The abstract should then go on to summarise the findings of the study, and finally a statement as to what the outcome of the study means in terms of its implications. Please look at slide 7 the ‘Workshop 6 Writing the 250PY report’ inthe week 6 folder for details].
