PSYCHOL 3011B - Advanced Career & Research Skills in Psychology B

The aim of this course is to develop student skills in research methods through the extension and application of skills developed in the regular accredited sequences. Using either R, SPSS, STATA or other statistical packages, students will taught to apply their emerging research skills to practical research problems. Important skills will include data coding, preparation and cleaning; being able to develop research problems and apply appropriate statistical methods; and extension exercises in which students have to demonstrate their ability to learn new techniques not previously taught. An important element of this course will be a project that requires the formal involvement in a research process; this will involve the design of a project, the collection or compilation of existing data as well as data analysis and reporting.
