Section Information for Fall 2021

Psychology 611 is the first course of a two-course sequence that serves to introduce psychology graduate students to statistics, research methodology, research design, and measurement. Traditional graduate psychology statistics courses emphasize statistical techniques as a matter of declarative knowledge. Students are expected to know each procedure and its “appropriate” application. An alternative approach tends toward technical discourse (e.g., matrix algebra, formula memorization, and hand calculations) and requires greater attention to minute detail and mathematical vernacular. A less used but equally suitable approach treats statistics as a method of principled argument. The method I use for this course is a hybrid of the three approaches. You will be expected to know the statistical terminology, apply your knowledge in both carrying out the procedures as well as interpreting the results, and then you will be expected to use the results in a manner consistent with scientific discourse.
