Description:

Even students with no background in research methods can use this text to learn how to design, execute, interpret, and report on simple psychology experiments! David W. Martin's unique blend of informality, humor, clear instruction, and solid scholarship make this concise text a popular choice for research methods courses in psychology. DOING PSYCHOLOGY EXPERIMENTS guides students through the experimentation process in a step-by-step manner. Martin emphasizes the decision-making aspects of research, as well as the logic behind research procedures. He also devotes two separate chapters to many of the ethical questions that confront new experimenters -- making this text a complete introduction to the psychology laboratory.
