The goal of this course is to introduce students to the basic methods of research used by developmental psychologists. Course materials will focus on the conceptual, design, and analytic issues to research across development. Topics will include the role of age and developmental stage as organizing variables, relevant methodologies and designs, statistical analyses, and the presentation of research findings in written and presentation formats. This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and understanding to both conduct and evaluate research. In the service of these goals, students will participate in lectures, readings, and discussion and will gain hands on experience as a means for practicing these research skills.
