Psychologist as Detective : Introduction to Conducting Research in Psychology - 4th edition

Psychologist as Detective : Introduction to Conducting Research in Psychology (ISBN10: 013227731X; ISBN13: 9780132277310)
ISBN13: 978-0132277310
ISBN10: 013227731X

Summary: For undergraduate courses in Experimental Psychology, Research Methods, or Experimental Design.

This text conveys the excitement of research methodology through a lively, conversational style. To make the study of the research process interactive and accessible, student-focused features and critical thinking activities are integrated throughout the text. Actual student research appears in each chapter to increase relevance and heighten student interest.>
New To This Edition
  • Chapter 8 now contains information on BOTH internal and external validity. By combining this information prior to the chapter on using statistics, students will have a stronger foundation in internal and external validity issues BEFORE they encounter the chapters on research design.
  • Material on critiquing psychological research has been moved from Chapter 13 to Chapter 2. By placing this material earlier, students will have learned how to evaluate research before they encounter more advanced topics.
  • Three Brief student pieces added to Chapter 14, "Writing and Assembling an APA-Format Research Report". Covering an oral presentation, poster presentation, and the process of publishing a journal article, all three pieces are authentic student experiences with research. Appearing at the end of the book, these pieces reinforce the overall message that students can and should be taking their research results to higher levels of professional development.
