Methods for Behavioral Research

A Systematic Approach

Paul David Cherulnik,

Methods for Behavioral Research: A Systematic Approach
 
 

Methods for Behavioral Research introduces psychology students to research methods. The author′s principal goal is to present methods in a way that will lend coherence to the material. He does this by providing a meaningful framework based on Campbell and Stanley′s "threats to validity" and by organizing the book around the chronology of the research process, treating it as a sequence of steps:

  • Formulating a hypothesis
  • Specifying the variables
  • Creating a research design
  • Collecting the data
  • Analyzing the data
  • Drawing conclusions and reporting the results

In addition, in his approach and via boxed features, the author encourages and models a process of critical thinking for students. The abundant study aids will help students summarize each chapter visually, and provide review questions, and exercises.
