Students will learn about a variety of current experimental measurement techniques (both explicit and implicit measures). Groups of students will design and carry out research projects, analyze data, and present findings to the class. In addition, students will complete weekly assignments on methodology and will write a final research paper.

Essential Capabilities: Quantitative Reasoning, Writing
Students will conduct an experiment and will complete statistical analysis on the data. These tasks require both design and quantitative reasoning. Writing will be strengthened with the final research paper due at the end of the term.
