📝Research Methods In Psychology Book Synopsis : Psychologists use a variety of research methods and tools to learn about behavior and mental processes. The goal of this book is to introduce students to the “multimethod approach” to research in psychology, including observational, survey, and experimental methods. Students learn the strengths and weaknesses of each method, as well as ethical dilemmas when using them, so that they can become competent practitioners and thoughtful consumers of psychological research. Our approach is to engage students in the research process by describing contemporary research in psychology. Students learn about recent topics such as online dating and Facebook, cross-cultural observations of helping behavior, PTSD in orphaned chimpanzees, Medicaid and Medicare health outcomes, decision-making during Hurricane Katrina, clinical research and DSM-5, and much more. Each chapter's “stretching exercises,” “stat tips,” review questions, and challenge questions develop students' critical thinking about the psychological research that appears in scientific journals and in popular media. Together with the companion Online Learning Center for students, the 10th edition of Research Methods in Psychology provides a clearly written, compelling introduction to research methods in psychology

đź“ťEvaluating Research Methods in Psychology Book Synopsis : Using a series of over 40 case studies, this valuable text illustrates the processes and pitfalls involved in evaluating psychological research. Invites students to consider whether the conclusion drawn at the end of each case is correct, or whether the results could have an alternative explanation. Cross-referencing between sections is made easy by page references that link the case studies and explanations. Cases reflect the range of research methods taught at undergraduate level and include qualitative research. Gives students an understanding of methodological problems. Equips students to critically evaluate published research. The author and publishers have made every effort to be fair to the authors of the research described in this book.

If you are an author of one of the pieces of research mentioned in the book and would like to respond to the critique presented, please e-mail your comments to Andrew McAleer at [email protected]

đź“ťMethods in Psychological Research Book Synopsis : Methods in Psychological Research is pedagogically driven, interactive, and highly applied to engage and motivate students. This brief and basic introduction to research methods in psychology is presented in a relaxed style, at a moderate level of detail, and with a rich mix of pedagogy to engage and motivate students from a variety of backgrounds and academic preparation. The authors focus on applying concepts students are learning, and they emphasize doing research with simple in-text exercises that provide a more interactive feel than found in most methods textbooks. They also provide examples of real psychology research, both from the research literature and, uniquely, from student research projects. This friendly and supportive presentation of the basics conveys to students the excitement and fun of the research enterprise and involves them in `doing' research, not just memorizing another term for an exam.

đź“ťResearch Methods in Psychology for High School Students Book Synopsis : High school teachers face common challenges. How do we assist students to cognitively advance before they typically do on their own? How do we maintain a scholarly atmosphere in the classroom and still keep the material relevant to student lives? The purpose of this book is to turn students into investigators of psychology. I want to reframe student ideas that research is an abstraction, and help them come to the realization that a listing of facts is meaningless without understanding their origin. Once students understand the real meaning of psychological information, the "facts" have a clear application. This book assists students in designing a simple experiment. The directions are appropriate for a student's first experience with research methods. Students also learn the basics of non-experimental design so they can run simple studies and interpret the meaning of information obtained by the different methods in essays. All teachers can appreciate the problem solving approach to learning about research methods. Scores on all tests formats can improve if students develop a true understanding of methodology. Students remember what they understand!
