SS 222 - Research Design & Statistical Analysis II

This course is part two of an introductory year-long study of social science research design and statistics for psychology majors that will prepare students for upper-level coursework in psychology. Course will provide an in-depth coverage of social science research methods including descriptive studies, correlational studies, experimental studies, and qualitative studies. It also will address statistical analyses including nonparametric statistics, calculation of correlation coefficients, testing the significance of correlation coefficients, testing for the difference between two correlation coefficients, t-tests for parameter estimates, t-test for the differences between intact or experimentally derived groups, one-factor ANOVAs, and planned and post-hoc comparisons. In addition to traditional statistical methods, the courses will cover methods for the qualitative analysis of social science data. Furthermore, these courses will incorporate training in the reading and writing of social science research reports in APA style. The course will consist of both lecture and laboratory experiences. Separate laboratory experiences will focus on conducting and analyzing social science experiments. Required of all psychology majors; open to social science minors and other qualified students with the permission of the instructor.
