Doing Psychology Experiments
Doing Psychology Experiments, Fourth Edition enables students - even students with no experimental background - to design, execute, interpret, and report simple psychological experiments. The conversational writing style guides students through the process in an easy-to-follow, step-by-step manner. Decision-making aspects of research are emphasized, and the logic behind the research procedures is fully explained. This new edition features the latest changes in ethics principles, information about recent legislation on animal experimentation, full incorporation of new APA style guidelines, a discussion on how to give effective conference presentations and poster sessions, a detailed section on the development and use of surveys, and a reordering of material for greater understanding.
