3. See if sex diff (female superiority) found on original version of test can be replicated H 1. The AS/HFA group would score sig. lower on mental state judgments on Eye Test but be unimpaired on the gender control judgments 2. The AS/HFA group would score sig. higher in AQ 3. Females in “normal” groups (2 and 3) would score higher than males in Eyes Test 4. Males in “normal” group (3) would score higher than females on the AQ 5. Scores on the AQ and Eyes Test would be inversely correlated 6) Research method: Quasi Strengths of method used: Weaknesses of method 2

Experimental research/Non- experimental research (Observation/ Self-report : interview/ questionnaire ) / Case- study Correlation Longitudinal/ Snapshot *(Underline the appropriate method) What makes it that method? Greater ecological validity Less likelihood of demand characteristics IV and DV retained Naturally occurred behaviours = real life behaviours – more representative Allows Es to investigate variables that would not be practical/ethical to manipulate used: Only possible when differences occur naturally Difficult to make inferences of exact effect of IV on DV due to lack of control over extraneous variables and manipulation of IV Difficult to be replicated – low reliability May be biased – Ps know that they are being studied 7) For experimental study only: Experimental design used: Independent group / Repeated measures/ Matched pairs *(Underline the appropriate design) What makes it that design? Strengths of design used: No order effects Less demand characteristics Weaknesses of design used: Ps variables More Ps required 8) For experimental study only: IV (Independent variable): How was it manipulated/ what are the different conditions of the experiment? Factor of autism - AS - TS - Normal control group DV (Dependent variable): How was the DV measured? Performance on Eye Test Control: 3
