The DV would be operationalised by constructing a closed-ended questionnaire composed of 20 questions asking participants about mood with 5 answers for each question ranging from 1 strongly disagree to 5 strongly agree.

The two groups of workers would work in the same occupation: For example, journalism to eliminate differences in job as a potential extraneous variable and workers in the office chosen to contain plants would be pre-tested to ensure none of the workers were averse to or allergic to plants to eliminate this as an extraneous variable.
Students will have the opportunity to explore interesting psychology topics, considering both psychological theory and practical application. Our exam questions are varied and interesting, allowing students the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge and understanding in different ways as they respond to multiple choice questions, short-answer questions, essay-style questions requiring extended writing, and scenario-based questions, where they apply their knowledge to a given context.
The DV would be office workers mood. Have 2 or more observers recording data separately so that they compare their data to ensure they are categorising and recording observations in the same way as each other. A-level students take AS and A2 units.
Data could be analysed in various ways. This qualification is modular AS students take AS units only.
Justify your choices. These are often worth marks. Starting from June first time AS units are available and June first time A2 units are available.
