Course Description:This course provides an introduction to basic methods of psychological research, including experimental design, data collection and analysis, and communication of results. Each student will be expected to design and carry out an experiment or design/administer a survey and then write up the results in APA (American Psychological Association) format. Topics include both parametric (e.g., regression, ANOVA) and non-parametric (chi-e.g., square, Mann-Whitney U, Wilcoxon T, Kruskal-Wallis, Friedman's) procedures. Data analysis will be carried out using SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). Graduate students will have somewhat different evaluation criteria, particularly for the semester long data collection project.
