about this item

Research Methods for the Behavioral Sciences, 2e employs a problem-focused approach to introduce research methods. Privitera fully integrates the research methods decision tree—from choosing a research design to choosing an appropriate statistic—to encourage students to select the most appropriate methodology for the research question they're seeking to answer. Greg Privitera covers the full scope of methodologies from non-experimental to quasi-experimental to experimental in a straightforward, non-biased manner.

The chapters are organized in sections to facilitate maximum flexibility, and helpful and abundant pedagogy includes learning objectives, Learning Checks, Making Sense boxes, and a series of appendices to help students navigate APA style requirements. Discrete sections in each chapter can be assigned when instructors don't want to teach all topics covered in the entire chapter. In addition, Privitera provides integrated coverage of statistics and SPSS to help students make the connection between research design and analysis. 

A conversational writing tone speaks to the reader as the researcher. Privitera empowers students to view research methods as something they are capable of understanding and applying. This positive approach to writing involves students in decision-making using the scientific process. The goal is to motivate and excite students by making the book both comprehensive and pleasurable to read.
