Module code


This module will provide an understanding of statistical analyses used in psychological research. Quantitative statistics methods will be explained on a high conceptual level, aiming for students to see links between particular analyses. Using this knowledge, students are encouraged to explore and interpret statistical output as well as clearly present the results. Topics will be taught in the context of design issues and students will analyse published data and replicate research findings. Classes will last two hours combining both lecture and computer workshop methods of teaching. To foster learning, weekly quizzes will be given and knowledge will be assessed using a range of methods such as poster and open-ended questions.
