PSIC-2706 Diseño y Análisis de Investigación I

How do we know if a psychological variable is the cause of another psychological variable? How can we design a study to find out whether a psychological intervention really achieves the changes we intend to? How do we know if the differences in the responses between men and women on an interview are the reflect of a true difference between men and women, or if they are merely the differences between the people we interviewed? These are some of the questions this course focuses on. Using statistical values as a research tool, we will try to begin to understand how to design quantitative research and how to analyze quantitative data in order to solve problems and to provide answers in psychology. We will seek for this understanding by conducting real-life exercises.
