TMA 01 Part 1: Summarising and interpreting a table

The table shown gives us substantial information regarding the Bandura et al experiment (1963). The experiment involved a mixture of male and female children aged three to nine years old. Bandura’s experiment was conducted to see how the children would react to certain types of aggression in a controlled environment using a mix of live models (male and female), a doll and a cartoon.
The results were recorded and split into sub-categories, for example, gender and experimental conditions. After subjecting the girls to a female model, they had a more violent reaction than the boys (girls: 19.2, boys: 18.4). The results gained by the female model provided the closest comparison between genders. The biggest difference between the gender’s aggression was shown after witnessing the male model (girls: 17.2, boys: 51.7).
Imitave behavior from the boys was double that of the girls (girls: 56, boys: 110.2). However, the control group demonstrated low results in imitave behavior from both genders. Imitive aggression from the boys was generally higher. The results indicated that: boys are more likely to show aggressive behavior without witnessing it, girls are influenced by the female models more and children are more likely to imitate aggression after witnessing it.
