|Title: ||PSYC 350-01, Randomized Experiments in Psychology, Fall 2007|
|Authors: ||Steel, Julie|
|Date Issued: ||23-Aug-2007|

|Series/Report no.: ||Syllabi CRN|
|Abstract: ||As you know, the college is well into the process of changing to a new curriculum from “general degree requirements” to “foundational requirements”. In doing so, the psychology department is making a few changes to its major requirements. This course will take the place of Psyc 212 in the new curriculum. It has many of the same goals as Psyc 212, but it will no longer be taken concurrently with Psyc 211 (stat). If you are using the “old” curriculum, it will count as EITHER a Lab course OR as an Applied course. If you are using the “new” curriculum, it will count as your “advanced methods” course.
In this course, you will be exposed to research in the field of justice‐seeking. This course will help you learn the basic principles of experimental methodologies used in psychology and apply the methodologies in a real setting. In addition, you will become very familiar with the current literature in the area of justice‐seeking. You will be involved in a hands‐on research project dealing with the psychology of justice‐seeking from inception through completion. You will critically evaluate research studies and you will utilize your knowledge to conduct a research experiment (devise a research question, concoct a study methodology, run subjects, input data, analyze results, and disseminate findings). In addition, you will assist OTHER members of the class as they grapple with the nuts and bolts of their own research projects. THIS CLASS IS A GROUP EFFORT.|
