Module overview

This module is designed to provide you with some of the research skills required to carry out a final year dissertation in psychology. It involves developing your ability to critically evaluate and review research articles in education and psychology, and learning how to analyse and present the results of statistical analyses of the relationship between several independent variables and a dependent variable. The critical reviews are based on articles drawn from your dissertation area. The main focus of the statistics component is on analysis of variance and multiple regression, but non-parametric equivalents are also considered.
