All students in IB Psychology will be completing a replication project, which will serve as the Internal Assessment (IA). This project is based off of a famous experiment from psychology; however, it might not be identical to the original study and that it okay. More often than not, students complete an experiment from the Cognitive Approach. Students are allowed to collect their data in groups of four or less, but ALL students will need to write an authentic and unique paper (which is between 1800-2000 words in length)
