Resource summary

Bandura AO1
1 Aim
1.1 To see if behaviours learnt by children by imitation in one setting could be repeated in a different setting even when adult model is not present
2 Hypothesis
2.1 1. Children exposed to an aggressive model will reproduce the aggressive act of the model
2.2 2. Children exposed to a non-aggressive model will inhibit aggressive behaviour
2.3 3. Children will imitate same-sex models more than opposite-sex model
2.4 4. Boys will imitate more aggressive behaviour than girls
3 Method
3.1 Lab. exp.
4 Design
4.1 Matched pairs
4.2 Nursery teacher and experimenter who knew the children well rated them in a 5 point scale for aggression
4.2.1 0.89 inter-rate reliability
5 Participants
5.1 72 children from Stanford University Nursery
5.2 36 boys
5.3 36 girls
5.4 Age ranged from 37 to 69 mths. Avg. age 52 mths
5.5 Conditions
5.5.1 1. Aggressive model 24 children. 2. Non-aggressive model 24 children 6 boys Female model 6 girls Male model 6 girls Female model 6 boys Male model

8.3.1 Room contained a selection of aggressive and non-aggressive toys e.g. dart guns and paper and crayons
8.3.2 Experimenter stayed in the room. Researcher and model observed through one way mirror (every 5 secs) Looking for: Imitated aggression. Partially imitated aggression. Non-imitated aggression Inter-rater reliability 0.9
9 Results
9.1 When exposed to aggressive models made imitative aggressive reposnse
9.2 Children observing non-aggressive model showed few aggeressive acts
9.3 Boys likely to imitate same-sex model
