The module is co-ordinated by Dr Gillian Sandstrom, to whom queries should be addressed.

PS212 Psychology Research builds upon your statistics classes in the first year, and combines statistics lectures and computer workshops using statistical software.

This is a full-year course, delivered as two components:
(1) Lectures will cover data analysis skills, along with their underlying principles, which will equip you for most of the laboratory class and project work that you will encounter in the rest of your psychology degree.

(2) Computer workshops will give you a supervised opportunity to solve exercises using statistical software, and the chance to ask questions about any aspects of the topics covered in the lectures.

PS212 is assessed by two computer-based assignments (the first worth 20%; the second worth 27%), research participation (3%) and a final end-of-year summer examination (50%).
