    yes pleaseee
    I've only been studying it for about a month and it's already quite complicated :confused:
    I did the rest of my homework okay but now I'm stuck on these:

    Operationalising variables: When you operationalise a variable you put it in a form in which it can be measured. This makes it clear how the IV will operate to measure the DV. You cannot, for example, measure 'memory' but you can measure ‘number of words recalled'.From psychology studies, which you already know, explain how the following were operationalised.

    1. The IV and the DV in the Petersons' trigram study of STM duration.

    2. The IV and the DV in the Jacob's study of STM capacity.

    3. Operationalise the following hypothesis:
    Going to children's social clubs increases children's friendships

    I kind of understand it because I just did a crap ton of work on working out IV/DV and the difference between directional and non-directional hypotheses, but I haven't gotten a chance to study operationalising variables in my own time, so it's a bit confusing. :(

    OHHHH THAT MAKES SO MUCH MORE SENSE!! Thank you so much!! :loverr3:
    I honestly thought I had to write out a method to investigate the hypothesis, which made absolutely no sense. Thank you so much!

    For the last example, would saying "School children aged 6-7 will ___ than children of the same age who do not attend clubs." be partly correct?
    I found it difficult to operationalize "friendship" since it's obviously really hard to measure. I came up with "know the names of more children" (but this is linked to measuring memory so it doesn't make much sense), "have more children to play with" (but this isn't specific enough, not really operationalised), "be able to recognize more children" (same problem as the previous one). There were a couple others but they're all really vague :confused:

    Oh, I see! I was really worried that my examples were terrible :oops:

    I think it's referring to the number of friends they have, but my teacher just stole the questions from an AQA text book, so it should just be up for interpretation. Thank you so so much for your help, I was really struggling before!!
