Psychology 2203  Psychological Research Methods a.k.a. Statistics for Arts Students
The first thing to note about this unit is that anyone who has done highschool maths and remembers some basic statistics will find parts of this unit astonishingly boring, and the nonboring parts fairly easy. However, many of the statistical methods are useful for Your Future, so you'll need to acquire at least some skill with them.
It starts with some statistical theory on hypothesis testing, moves on to tests of statistical significance and effect size, analysis of variance (ANOVA), and finishes with consideration of the chisquared test.
Quasinotes are available  DavidMorrison makes his Powerpoint slides available in both native and richtext format. He speaks just a little bit too fast for you to take proper notes off the screen in many cases, so these are well worth getting, but are not a substitute for the lectures.
The textbook (Gravetter) is both excellent and vital  you could probably skip lectures if you read it all.
Classes are light on  two lectures and a twohour lab every week.
Assignments are a bit heavier than previous Psych units  two midsemester tests, two lab reports, an assessed lab book, an assessed lab exercise early in semester, and the exam.
