Wonderful textbook   April 7, 2011
by


This textbook provides instruction in experimental research as well as non-experimental approaches such as ex-post fact research, correlation research, and survey research. Also included are qualitative research approaches such as ethnography and phenomenology. This book certainly helped me at least become competent in basic research practices. I am not experienced enough in research to fully recommend this text, nor can I make direct comparisons to other texts, but it certainly is a resource you should consider if you are teaching a research design class and/or feel you need a reference on your bookshelf in this area. This textbook was in great condition and shipped extremely quickly. I received it days before the estimated time of arrival. Thanks ecampus .






Research Methods, Design, and Analysis: 4 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

This text presents a reader-friendly introduction to the basic principles of experimental psychological research.

Research Methods, Design, and Analysis is organized so that each chapter focuses on a specific step in the research process. This text provides instruction in experimental research as well as non-experimental approaches such as ex-post facto research, correlational research, and survey research. Also included are qualitative research approaches such as ethnography and phenomenology.

The current edition, while maintaining detailed coverage of the experimental method, has expanded coverage on nonexperimental methods as well as expanded coverage of data analysis. This textbook incorporates both quantitative and qualitative research to give students a balanced perspective. Extensive examples are provided to bring more of a "real life" aspect to the text.
