"Research Methods for Social Psychology will help students learn to conduct empirical research in social psychology. The author teaches students to think like experimental social psychologists, that is, to use or develop explanatory theories and to manipulate and measure variables In order to explain the origin or purpose of some aspect of social life. Students will learn to perform research projects on human social behavior from start to finish, from selecting a research topic to collecting and analyzing data, to writing up the results using the American Psychological Association's required format (i.e., APA style). Along the way, they will learn about the particular ethical issues social psychologists face, the logic of experimental design, alternative research approaches, sorting accuracy from error in research, and how to present their findings orally, among other issues."

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 322 libraries worldwide

Providing the right orientation and capstone courses in psychology education is increasingly a concern of instructors, department chairs, program directors, and deans, and both types of courses have become important sources for gathering pre- and post-coursework assessment data for degree learning outcomes. The strategies presented here have been designed to help educators examine issues around teaching the introductory or careers course and developing a psychology-specific orientation program. The authors also provide concrete suggestions for building capstone experiences designed to fit the needs of a department, its pedagogical philosophy, or the educational agenda of the college or university. Undergraduate psychology curriculum designers and instructors can benefit from learning innovative and effective strategies for introducing the major to first-year students and, at graduation, for bringing closure, reinforcing the overall departmental learning outcomes, and helping students apply their disciplinary knowledge in capstone experiences and post-graduate life ... -- Product Description
