Summary

Written for a research methods course that follows a preliminary statistics course. Author David Pittenger's insight that students who studied statistics first had not mastered that subject lead to writing a methods text that reviews and integrates statistical discussions with that of research design. Employing an informal style with interesting everyday examples, Pittenger emphasizes that good psychological research allows us to answer many practical questions related to improving the quality of life.

Features :

  • Specifically incorporates intriguing contemporary research examples to "hook" student interest: i.e. sexism, the spread of HIV virus, the effectiveness of psychotherapy.
  • Combines basic statistical concepts with the discussion of research methods to illustrate how researchers collect and interpret data -- i.e. sampling theory introduced with descriptive statistics helps students understand how researchers make inferences from samples.
  • Emphasizes conceptual, as opposed to computational, treatment of statistics focusing on the concept of power within research designs.
  • Consistently reviews the control and explanation of variability through research design and statistical analysis.
  • Provides objective evaluation of the strengths and limitations of a range of empirical techniques.
  • Active learning devices include "Research in Action" case studies, "Achievement Checks" that apply material to objective problems, innovative visual aids and visual "metaphors."
  • A student CD-ROM, "Making the Grade" comes packaged with the text.
  • Instructor's CD-ROM with test item bank available upon adoption.
