An introduction to the basic principles of research in psychology. We focus on how to design and execute experiments, analyze and interpret results, and write research reports. Students conduct a series of research studies in different areas of psychology that illustrate basic designs and methods of analysis.
The Class: Format: lecture/laboratory; Prof. Savitsky's section will be taught remotely. Synchronous lectures and lab meetings will be recorded for those who can't attend but synchronous participation is preferred, especially in lab. In Prof. Cone's section, many lectures will be held via synchronous, remote gatherings. Periodically, students who can meet in person will gather for discussions, problem solving sessions, and lab work with others joining remotely. You must register for lab and lecture with the same instructor.
