Course Description

Statistical analyses are used in psychology to help us understand data so we can evaluate claims and make informed decisions. In this course, students study concepts and methods of behavioural data analysis, including the use of descriptive and inferential statistics to understand psychological research. Students practice conceptual interpretation of data and learn to translate statistics into meaningful ideas to prepare them to read and critically evaluate psychological research.
