MARK SCHEME – A-LEVEL SOCIOLOGY – 7192/3R – JUNE 2018 Qu Marking guidance Total marks 05 Outline and explain two disadvantages of using laboratory experiments in sociological research. 10 Marks Level Descriptors 8−10 Answers in this band will show very good knowledge and understanding of two disadvantages of using laboratory experiments in sociological research. There will be two applications of relevant material, e.g. laboratory experiments are conducted in an artificial rather than a naturalistic setting so as to give the researcher control over the variables to be tested; practical and financial constraints mean laboratory experiments are often small in scale and of limited duration. There will be appropriate analysis, e.g. the artificiality of the setting undermines validity because of the Hawthorne effect: participants respond to the experimental situation/researcher rather than to the experimental stimuli; short, small-scale laboratory experiments are not suited to investigating the effects of large-scale social structures or long-term historical processes.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
