A Social Psychology Research Experience Jennifer Harman and Justin Lehmiller

A Social Psychology Research Experience

(Second Revised Edition)
By Jennifer J. Harman and Justin J. Lehmiller

Perforated Paperback ISBN: 978-1-62661-912-8, 320 pages


The text has been great in terms of helping to make the class more interactive...I had the best class discussion I've ever had about ethics. The text does a great job walking students through the research process, and helping them to learn about the different options of measuring variables.
– Nancy Frye, PhD, Department of Psychology, Long Island University

A Social Psychology Research Experience is a workbook that offers students a hands-on introduction to how social psychologists develop and test their research questions. Used in conjunction with a comprehensive instructor’s manual, this workbook includes skill building and interactive group activities that lead students through hypothesis generation, experimental design, the institutional review process, data analysis, writing, and dissemination of their research findings. Students also learn about and gain experience using diverse data collection methodologies, such as priming procedures, psychophysiological measures, surveys, and behavioral observation.

Developed by two experimental social psychologists with several years of combined experience teaching and supervising undergraduate student research, this is a truly unique workbook; it covers the entire research experience in detail, while other comparable books tend to only focus on specific parts of the process, such as experimental design or data analysis.
