How Sciences Look for Facts


What you’ll learn
Need or want a better understanding of how scientists track down the facts they need to know? This short, entertaining course will help you understand why psychology is a science, how psychologists (and others) conduct experiments, and what correlational studies can tell you about relationships between variables. You can find details about research terminology, concepts, and procedures all over the web (and, of course, in conventional textbooks), but the focus here is on showing you-not just telling you-how research accomplishes what it does.

Requirements
None!

Description
Need or want a better understanding of how scientists track down the facts they need to know? This short, entertaining course will help you understand why psychology is a science, how psychologists (and others) conduct experiments, and what correlational studies can tell you about relationships between variables. You can find details about research terminology, concepts, and procedures all over the web (and, of course, in conventional textbooks), but the focus here is on showing you-not just telling you-how research accomplishes what it does and the kinds of mistakes media (and even scientists) often make when interpreting the results of research. Videos will continue to be added to the collection, probably beginning with "statistical significance" and "factor analysis," so please keep in touch!

Who this course is for:
Students who would like to understand how scientists achieve their research objectives and why the procedures they use can help them.
