Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Understanding psychological research by finding a problem, discovering the clues, and evaluating the evidence.

 

The Psychologist as Detectives introduces students to the research process. The authors treat psychological research as a detective case in which a problem is presented, clues are discovered, evidence is evaluated, and a report is prepared for consideration by peers.

 

Found within MySearchLab, or as a stand-alone, Operation ARA is a new “smart game” that teaches critical thinking and research methods in the context of a “save the world” story-line.

 

Learning Goals

Upon completing this book, readers will be able to:

  • Think critically about research and research methods
  • Analyze research as a problem solving procedure
  • Develop research skills by looking at examples of research studies
  • Evaluate evidence from a research study and prepare a report or summary of the case
