2 of 24
Name the three DV's in Bandura Study?
Imitation of aggression in children (physical and verbal) behaviours.

What were the three measures (DV) that Bandura operationalised?
Imitative for physical aggression/Imitative verbal aggression/Imitative non-agressive verbal responses.
4 of 24
What method was Bandura's study?
Laboratory experiment (covert observation).
5 of 24
What experimental design did Bandura use? How were the participants matched?
Matched paires/On scales on natural agression, age and gender.
6 of 24
What type of sample was used in Bandura's study?
Opportunity sample.
7 of 24
How many participants was in Bandura's study? How old were the participants and mean age?
72 children aged (37-69 months)/Mean age was 53 months.
8 of 24
Where did Bandura allocate his participants?
Standford University (Nursery).
9 of 24
How were the participants divided into their subgroups?
All children were divided in three groups of 24/ 12 girls and 12 boys / from them the 12 / 6 girls with model / 6 girls without / same for the boys
10 of 24
What happened to the control condition?
The control did not have a model therefore the group was divided 12 boys / 12 girls.

What happened in stage 1 in Bandura's procedure?
Children were taken into a experimental room / contained toys: potato prints, pictures in corners for 10 minutes.
12 of 24
What happened in stage 1 in Bandura's procedure for the non-aggressive condition?
The model assembled the thinker toys in a quiet manner / ignoring bobo doll in the corner.

All children were taken into another room /Non-aggressive + aggressive toys available/Kept there for 20 minutes.
19 of 24
What type of toys were available to the children in stage 3?
Mallet:crayons:Bobo doll
20 of 24
What and How did the observers record data?
Two observers /Inter-rater reliability of .90/ Via one way mirror/ 5 sec intervals/Observed child's pre-determined behaviours by rating: Imitative aggression responses:partially imitative:responses non-imitaitve.
21 of 24
How many responses did the observers record for each child?
240 responses.
22 of 24
Results of Bandura's study for boys?
1)Children who saw (a) model imitated more (a) acts 2)Children in non-(a) less 3)Boys imitated male role models more than girls (p+v) 4)Boys made more imitative acts 5)Boys in (a) made less imitative acts if the model was female
23 of 24
Results of Bandura's study for girls?
1)Girls imitated more than boys in verbal aggression if the model was female 2) More physical aggression acts if the model was male than female.
