PSIC-2707 Design and research analysis II

How can we design a research that allows us to identify if certain psychological characteristics are able to explain some others? How can we know what individual, familiar or contextual factors allow for a better understanding of behavior? What is the best way to match the mean values of certain variables among groups of peoples? How may we know if the frequency that some people conduct certain actions with depends on the context they are within? These are some of the questions that this course focuses on. Using statistics as a research tool, we will try to deepen on how to design quantitative research, and how to analyze quantitative data to solve questions in psychology. We will seek for this understanding by conducting exercises based on real-life examples, from the existing data.
