Psychology | Methods of Experimental Psychology
P211 | ALL | Authorized
This description covers all sections of P211.
This required course for all psychology majors provides an introduction to
experimental methods. Students will conduction three experiments to gain
hands-on experience in: experimental design, critical thinking,
statistical analysis, reasoning from data to conclusions, ethics of human
and animal research, and writing. The major determinants of final grades
in all sections are performance on the three experimental projects and
performance on a departmental final exam. This final exam measures
students' literacy in the basics of experimental design and counts for 20%
of the final grade.
