Overview

Research Methods in Psychology: Evaluating a World of Information acknowledges that many psychology majors pursue careers in which they need to read and understand research rather than actually conduct research. Therefore, while students still learn the skills necessary to design research, the book emphasizes the quantitative reasoning skills students need to become systematic and critical consumers of information. Examples from a variety of sources capture students’ interest, and the innovative pedagogical framework ensures that students will retain and be able to apply what they learn.

Editorial Reviews

Eva Szeli
“This book weaves the threads of research design, psychometrics, and quantitative analysis in a way that suggests that students may actually see the ‘big picture’, rather than just feel like they are learning a series of unrelated concepts, principles, and designs.”
Lauren Taglialatela
“Rarely have I read a text with such a succinct and clear focus, and even more rarely have I seen that focus clung to with such tenacity—adding coherence and a common vernacular across chapters.”
