PSYC 632 - Research Methods

Fall 3 Vishton, Staff.

This course provides in-depth coverage of experimental and correlational approaches to quantitative research. A primary aim is to facilitate publication in respected journals by helping students to anticipate the kinds of critiques likely to arise during the peer-review process. Topics include hypotheses, theory, and meta-theory; assessment; psychometrics; causal inference; threats to internal/external validity; experimental and statistical controls; strengths and weaknesses of particular cross-sectional, longitudinal, and experimental designs; and acceptance criteria of peer-reviewed journals.
