Introduce inferential statistics and explain that they are used to make inferences about a population based on a sample. Provide examples of hypothesis testing and confidence intervals.

Introduce the independent samples t-test and explain that it is used to compare the means of two independent groups. Provide an example research scenario.

Introduce the paired samples t-test and explain that it is used to compare the means of two related groups. Provide an example research scenario.

Introduce the chi-squared test and explain that it is used to determine if there is a significant difference between observed and expected frequencies in categorical data. Provide an example research scenario.

Introduce the correlation coefficient and explain that it is used to measure the strength and direction of a relationship between two continuous variables. Provide an example research scenario.

Summarize the different statistical tests and explain that choosing the right statistical test depends on the research design, the type of data collected, and the research question.

Provide a research scenario and ask the students to work in pairs or small groups to identify the most appropriate statistical test to use. Walk around the room to provide support and answer questions.

Provide another research scenario and ask the students to work in pairs or small groups to identify the most appropriate statistical test to use. Walk around the room to provide support and answer questions.

Create a quiz with multiple choice and short answer questions to test the students' knowledge on the different statistical tests and when to use them. Review the quiz as a class to provide feedback and address any misconceptions.

Summarize the lesson and emphasize the importance of choosing the right statistical test in conducting valid and reliable research in AQA Psychology A Level.
