Lab Manual for Psychological Research

Fourth Edition

The Lab Manual for Psychological Research, Fourth Edition provides students with opportunities to practice and apply the knowledge and skills learned in their research methods course. Developed for use in a lab course or as take-home review, the manual contains four types of practice: exercises that connect to specific concepts; exercises for developing a research project; APA-style exercises that become progressively more complex; and instruction for how to avoid plagiarism. This comprehensive and practical manual can be used with Dawn M. McBride's best-selling The Process of Research in Psychology, Fourth Edition or as a supplement to other core texts.
