This CA requires students to submit a research report based on an in-class experiment. In the experiment students participate in a memory test which involves retroactive interference. The lecturer collects data from each participant and conducts statistical analysis of the data. Therefore, the results section is written by the lecturer and the task of the students is to create a report including an abstract, a review of the relevant literature, a method section, the results section provided by the lecturer, a discussion section, and references. The results section will be posted in Moodle.
