Here’s a sample from the AP Exam of how it should be set up:
Directions: You have 25 minutes to answer the following question. It is insufficient to answer a question by merely listing facts. You should present a cogent argument based on your critical analysis of the questions posed, using appropriate psychological terminology.
- Handwrite your FRQ on notebook paper. Do not use notes and stop writing at 25 minutes. (You may find you run out of time, that is okay – it is good practice.)
- Type up your FRQ and make corrections using your notes.
- Turn in both your handwritten FRQ and your typed revision.
In order to score points, you need to follow directions in order. You must score the first points in order to score subsequent points.
4 points – handwritten timed practice (uploaded as a jpeg file). You must do this first to score later points.
4 points – typed revised version (uploaded as a file or typed directly in the comments)
42 points – 6 points per term
For each term…. 1 point for definition in your own words, 1 point for discussion, 4 points for application brought full circle
Professor Xavier conducted a study at his home for the gifted during Halloween. Some of the children arrived alone, while others arrived in a group. Over the course of the night, Prof. Xavier asked half of the children to remove their masks when they arrived at his door. The remaining half kept their masks on. Prof. Xavier told every child to take only one piece of candy. He then went inside the house, leaving the bowl of candy outside. This gave children the opportunity to take additional candy. Prof. Xavier measured the percentage of children who took additional candy. His hypotheses were that children would take more candy when they were alone and that children would take more candy when they were masked. The results are shown in the graph below; assume all differences are significant.
- Identify the operational definition of the dependent variable in this study.
- Explain how the data support or do not support each of the Professor’s hypotheses.
- Explain why the Professor cannot generalize his findings to all children.
- Explain why the study is not a naturalistic observation.
- Explain how each of the following might have played a role in the experiment
