About this item

Originating in activities developed over many years of teaching research methods, this book aims to supplement traditional textbooks in research methodology. It features articles and examples from a broad spectrum of social sciences. Targeting undergraduates, it also includes advanced material at the end of each lab that will make the manual useful for early graduate students as well. Each lab features a different area of social sciences. Fifteen labs and conclusion are divided into three parts: before you collection data; collecting data—research designs and tools; after collecting data. Labs are: finding a topic, finding sources, and critically reading appropriate articles; how to write a literature review; after the literature review; ethics of research; qualitative designs; case studies and single-subject designs; surveys; descriptive and inferential statistics; correlational design; regression analysis; two-group designs; multiple-groups designs; factorial designs; writing the discussion section, sharing your findings using a poster or oral presentation; tables and figures. There are references, a note to instructors, a note to students, about the authors, and illustrations. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
