IB Psychology Seniors Become Researchers
Posted 12/10/2013 03:55PM

Does listening to classical music improve foreign language learning? How does suggestive questioning affect memory and recall?  These are just a few of the questions IB Psychology students are seeking to answer.  For their internal assessment, seniors in IB Psychology are learning what it is like to replicate psychological research, such as the “Halo Effect” and “Weapon Focus”.  A great deal of work has been spent in the planning stages - identifying variables, writing a hypothesis, choosing an experimental design, obtaining participants, gathering materials - to prepare for experiment day!  Several groups have already conducted their experiments and are now beginning to analyze and graph their results.  So, if you want to improve your Chinese, ask seniors Jennifer Whetter and Jun Jun Feng if you should listen to some Bach while you are studying.
