Aiming to lead undergraduate students through the research process from start to finish, this text opens with tips for generating research ideas, moves to selecting measures and participants and then offers an examination of research strategy and design, with each chapter ending in a set of student exercises and activities.
Who is it for? Slightly broader coverage of research methods than the other texts reviewed; therefore for undergraduates studying the behavioural sciences including psychology.
Presentation - Simple text, emphasising the American Psychological Association conventions, with integrated learning checks and definitions in the text.
Would you recommend it? Possibly as a research methods text for a general behavioural science course.
