Experimental Psychology

Author: Frank J. McGuigan
Publisher: Pearson College Division
ISBN: UOM:39015040692660
Release Date: 1997
Genre: Education

This edition continues to emphasize tha mutual facilitation of pure and applied research and the wise application of effective research methods to benefit society. Strategies for the solution of societal problems are specially developed in Chapters 10 and 11. Psychology is going through changes and is in danger of losing the methodological sophistication that has propelled it to the forefront of social and biological sciences. Psychologists are leaders in business, industry, government, politics, and academia, and their research findings on topics inportant for the public are cited daily in the media. However, that preeminence may erode as many psychologists neglect the study and use of sound research methodology. This book has always attempted to develop a broad perspective about where sound psychological research fits within areas of public interest as well as more generally within science. On this point some instructors whose students might be more interested in quasi-experimental research than in experimental research could assign Chapter 11 early in the course, perhaps immediately after Chapter 6, which introduces experiments.

Research Methods in Psychology for High School Students

Author: Jennie Jamison
Publisher: iUniverse

Release Date: 2006-08-01
Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

High school teachers face common challenges. How do we assist students to cognitively advance before they typically do on their own? How do we maintain a scholarly atmosphere in the classroom and still keep the material relevant to student lives? The purpose of this book is to turn students into investigators of psychology. I want to reframe student ideas that research is an abstraction, and help them come to the realization that a listing of facts is meaningless without understanding their origin. Once students understand the real meaning of psychological information, the "facts" have a clear application. This book assists students in designing a simple experiment. The directions are appropriate for a student's first experience with research methods. Students also learn the basics of non-experimental design so they can run simple studies and interpret the meaning of information obtained by the different methods in essays. All teachers can appreciate the problem solving approach to learning about research methods. Scores on all tests formats can improve if students develop a true understanding of methodology. Students remember what they understand!
