Statistics and Research Methods for Psychology and Other Social Sciences

Summer 2017 quarter (First Session)

Taught by

cognitive psychology

This program provides a concentrated overview of the statistics and research methodology required for the GRE and prerequisites for graduate schools in psychology, social work, education, and other social sciences. It also meets the statistics prerequisite for the MES, MPA, and MIT programs at Evergreen.  We emphasize hands-on, intuitive knowledge and approach statistics as a language rather than as math alone; thus this course is gentle on "math phobics."  No computer skills are required. You will become an informed and savvy consumer of information, from the classroom to the workplace. We will cover descriptive and inferential statistics, research methodology and ethics.
