|General course information: objectives, prerequisites, text, policies, etc.|
Lecture notes in PowerPoint, handouts, and articles for assigned reading.
Sample datasets used during lecture are here, too.
|Homework assignments and associated datasets, plus the handout for the data analysis project.|
|Resources for finding datasets for your data analysis project.|
|Information on getting approval for research on human subjects (e.g., questionnaires) from the TWU Research Ethics Board. You should use the form for "Analysis of Existing Data", near the bottom of the page. There is an excellent government Tri-Council tutorial on ethics in research, as well as a TWU document on guidelines for REB forms.|
|The industry-standard software tool for statistical analysis we will be using in this course, SPSS PASW Statistics. I have more information on how you can purchase your own copy of SPSS for use on your own computers, if you so desire.|
Additional student resources provided by the textbook's author, Andy Field:
interactive multiple-choice quizzes, glossary, SPSS tutorials, and all
datasets referenced in the text.
I also have a local copy of the datasets.
|Mini-library of relevant journal articles referenced in class. (This is from last year's course.)|
|The new 6th edition of the APA Style Manual has a number of errors. The 2nd printing has corrected them; we have copies of that in spiral-bound, but if you got the paperback, it's probably the 1st-printing. The APA site has the list of corrections, and also updated sample papers.|
|Every class starts with a short devotional from the Bible, to help keep everything in perspective!|
