Applied Quantitative Methods in Survey Research
PSYC 307
Fall 2009 not offered

This hands-on seminar provides advanced and applied experience in survey research. Students will have the opportunity to develop skills in conducting an in-depth literature review; evaluating the content of scientific literature; generating testable hypotheses that add substantially to their chosen area of psychological research; locating and gaining access to publicly available data; preparing data for analysis; selecting and conducting descriptive and inferential analyses that address their chosen hypotheses; presenting research findings; and evaluating implications. Students will also learn computer software packages utilized throughout the research process including SAS, Endnote, and PowerPoint.

Essential Capabilities: Quantitative Reasoning
Using real data in a computer laboratory, students will develop a quantitative argument, formulate and test hypotheses using statistics, and observe and summarize relationships among their selected constructs. The emphasis is on reasoning rather than rote computation.
