The module is coordinated by Dr Miroslav Sirota in Term 1 and by Dr Tom Foulsham in Term 2 to whom queries should be addressed. A full outline of the module will be available online and distributed during the first lecture.

PS115 provides step-by-step training in the analysis of psychological data, including the use of computer packages for data analysis. The module covers descriptive statistics (emphasising the best way to summarize findings), and inferential statistics (deciding what conclusions can be made from data). The main purpose of the module is to make you a better psychologist by giving you the skills to analyse and present psychological data, and to improve your ability to understand and assess the psychological research that others have carried out. The techniques covered in the module will be used in the Year 1 research methods module (PS114) and throughout all three years of your degree course.
