VCE Psychology Upgrade My Answer
« on: February 22, 2019, 03:10:40 pm »

What is this thread for?
If you want feedback on your answers so you can get more marks for your knowledge, this is the place!

Step 1. Share a question you didn't get full marks on, including your answer and how many marks the question was worth
Step 2. Wait for another user (maybe even multiple!) to provide feedback on how they might've approached the question and how you could improve your answer
Step 3. Apply the feedback you've learnt to aim for higher marks more confidently :)

Who can/will provide feedback?
Everyone is welcome to contribute; even if you're unsure of yourself, providing different perspectives is incredibly valuable.

Please don't be dissuaded if you haven't finished Year 12, or didn't score as highly as others, or your advice contradicts something else you've seen on this thread, or whatever; none of this disqualifies you from helping others. And if you're worried you do have some sort of misconception, put it out there and someone else can clarify and modify your understanding! 

There'll be a whole bunch of other high-scoring students with their own wealths of wisdom to share with you, including TuteSmart tutors! So you may even get multiple answers from different people offering their insights - very cool.

To ask a question or make a post, you will first need an ATAR Notes account. You probably already have one, but if you don't, it takes about four seconds to sign up - and completely free!

Question: Explain with reference to consolidation, why a footballer who is knocked unconscious during a game may be unable to remember how that occurred.

Answer: New incoming information is temporarily stored in short term memory before its transfer to long term memory. If consolidation is disrupted, new information may not transfer from short term to long term memory. If a footballer is knocked uncocnious, his consolidation has been disrupted and therefore his learning 30 min before being knocked out has not been transferred to long term memory, this he is unable to remember how he got knocked out.

I feel like that's an average response...what could make it better
thnx in advance  ;D
