Summary

An appealing, understandable, and valuable text, Research in Psychology: Methods and Design, 7th edition continues to offer its readers a clear, concise look at psychological science, experimental methods, and correlational research.

Rounded out with helpful learning aids, step-by-step instructions, and detailed examples of real research studies makes the material easy to read and student-friendly. Research examples range from contemporary research to classic studies in order to illustrate various methodological points and enhance critical thinking. Early coverage of experiments: The text gets to experiments as quickly as possible, and covers non-experimental research after experiments. Engaging historical material: Origins boxes show how different research methods and concepts have evolved. Extensive student review and application exercises: These provide opportunities for isntructors to engage their students in active learning. Self Tests are found throughout the chapters to give students the change to test their knowledge.
