This course will deal in detail with several types of research designs that are widely employed in Psychology. These designs will be examined in terms of the underlying rationale, the advantages and disadvantages, the empirical and statistical procedures, and the interpretation of the data obtained from the designs. Topics to be dealt with include randomized and matched two- group designs, one-way designs, two-factor factorial designs, within subject designs, Solomon 4-group design, quasi-experimental designs, and small-n designs. (Required for all Psychology majors and normally to be taken during the second year of the student's program).
