The most important parts refer to ‘Introduction’, ‘Results’ and ‘Discussion’. Thus, I kindly ask you to focus only on the above-mentioned parts.
Introduction – one of the most important parts the reader reads first. Please find more sources to back up my hypothesis.
Results – Please include some more tables or graphs to fulfill the lab report.
Discussion – another most important part. Please discuss in detail the topic by using sources/ references and include questions or give food for thoughts.

What’s the lab report about?
As part of a group project in our psychology course, we worked as a group of five students the last two months on our project relating to the main topic ‘bilingualism and cognitive processing’. Now each student has to write up a laboratory report. Hence, I need your help.
In brief, our hypothesis relates to bilinguals who have a better overall performance on reaction time on the ‘Eriksen’ Flanker test compared to monolinguals.
Bilinguals have a greater accuracy in responses in the working memory task (N-back) compared to monolinguals.
In general, 100 participants (22 participants each per student, divided in 11 bilinguals and 11 monolinguals) were included in our project. We tested participants who were bilingual and monolingual on a ‘flanker test’ and a ‘n-back’ test (Please see further information on the presentation slides and the ethics proposal). Hereby, we used a website called cognitivefun.com.
Whilst analysing the data by using a two-way ANOVA, we found that the differences between incongruent bilinguals and incongruent monolinguals were highly significant (p < .005).
For the memory task part, we used an independent t-test and found that accuracy in responses is not significantly different, however, almost significant (.052).
We noticed that the overall advantage of bilinguals in the Flanker test shows that the monitoring processes involved in executive control may be affected by bilingualism. We found similar results compared to the Costa (2008) experiment.
