Overview of class

This course will introduce students to methods used in psychological research. Through readings, lectures, discussion, and hands-on activities, students will learn about the scientific approach to research designs and about the analysis and interpretation of data. They will participate in novel research projects and will write a report on each in the style used by research psychologists. Primary goals are for students to learn (1) testing scientific hypotheses, including data collection and statistical analysis, (2) communicating effectively about research plans and findings, and (3) critically evaluating psychological research reports.
