Research Methods in Psychology
Evaluating a World of Information
An engaging text that helps students develop the skills they need for critically examining their world.
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.
