Introduction to Psychological Experimentation

This might be the first "research methods" class you've taken, but I have a feeling that you're familiar with the basic ideas. We all conduct informal research on a regular basis. This class helps us define and refine our approach to carry out more formal studies. The steps in the process -- based on the scientific method -- may also be familiar from other classes (maybe even before college),

At the end of this class, I hope you will be comfortable using your knowledge of empirical research methods, statistics, and APA style to deepen your understanding of a topic or issue as well as demonstrate that understanding verbally and in writing using APA style and typical communication standards.
