Identity DevelopmentEdit

Identity development (ID) is concerned with how people classify or establish themselves, and how this changes throughout the course of development.

There are five identity developments:

  • ID1: Discuss the formation and development of gender roles.
  • ID2: Explain cultural variations in gender roles.
  • ID3: Describe adolescence.
  • ID4: Discuss the relationship between physical change and development of identity during adolescence.
  • ID5: Examine psychological research into adolescence.

Note that any example responses are not necessarily worth full marks, but exist simply to provide an idea of how an example looks.
