Courses: Statistical Methods (PSYCB500001)

Fall 2009

Class Number: 1460
Designed to help students develop the critical skills necessary to
evaluate the research of others and to design and conduct research of
their own. Students are presumed to have had exposure to statistics
as undergraduates, but basic ideas and methods are reviewed quickly at
the beginning of the semester. Topics covered in the course include
simple and multiple correlation and regression, t-tests, nonparametric
tests, analyses of variance, and methods of analyzing categorical
data. The course stresses major theoretical concepts such as
hypothesis-testing, uses of inferential methods, research design
validity, and power. Students gain experience analyzing data with
SPSS and presenting the results of their analyses in APA-style.
