You need to (briefly) describe the research domain and discuss prior research that provides a basis for your expectations (research questions) and for the methodology we have used. You should end up with one research question relating to age, and one research question relating to methodology.
Method and Results – This has been supplied for you. Discussion – Here you need to start by describing the relationship between your expectations (research questions) and the findings, and between the findings and prior research before going on to consider how the findings can be interpreted and whether any implications can be drawn from them. Do link your findings back to previous research and theory before going on to talk results. Is there any evidence on this?
