PSYC 2002 V - Introduction to Statistics in Psychology

A general introduction to statistical techniques employed within contemporary psychology. Topics include basic data analysis using descriptive and inferential statistics (t-tests, ANOVA, correlation, chi-square).
Precludes additional credit for NEUR 2002.
Prerequisite(s): PSYC 1001, PSYC 1002, and PSYC 2001.

PSYC 2002 will cover the basics of data analysis. It will build on the descriptive statistics
covered in PSYC 2001 but the major focus is on inferential statistics.

Inferential statistics encompass a variety of procedures for deciding if results obtained in a study can be generalized to a population or if the results are due to chance or not. You will learn how to use these
statistics as well as learn their underlying conceptual basis. You will also learn how to use a
spreadsheet (e.g., Excel) to do statistical calculations.
