Employing numerous examples and the pedagogical approach of spaced repetition, this introductory text provides a step-by-step explanation of how to design, conduct, and present  research in psychology. Early chapters instroduce important concepts for developing research ideas, subject sampling, ethics, and data collection to help students understand the process of research. Subsequent "Nuts and Bolts" chapters provide more detailed coverage of these topics and the various types of research. This approach creates a logical scaffolding upon which students can build their knowledge.Key Features Chapter organization mirrors the steps in the research process in the first part of the book and then lays out the details of different types of research designs in the second half. This sequence reflects the logical, natural progression of the research process. The spaced repetition of concepts follows a proven memory/learning model that maximizes student retention. Thinking About Research sections at the end of chapters provide a summary of a real research study for students to analyze and relate to the chapter content Examples and activities in each chapter come from a wide range of psychological settings, giving students a useful overview of real research. Using Research feature at the end of selected chapters help students connect research methods knowledge to reports they encounter in their daily lives and from the media. End-of-Chapter Quizzes allow students to assess their progress Ancillaries: Password-protected Instructor Resource Site include a test bank, PowerPoint slides, sample syllabi, answers/tips for the in-text questions, an answer key for the Lab Manual and class discussion topics and activities.

Lab Manual The Lab Manual for Psychological Research by Dawn M. McBride and J. Cooper Cutting (available separately or bundled with the text) provides the perfect supplement for instructors who teach a lab component with their methods course or would simply like to provide their students with more guidance and practice in conducting their own research project
