This book provides an overview of developmental research methods and is designed to prepare readers to carry out, report, and evaluate research. Developmental Research Methods explores every step in the research process, from initial concept to final written product. It covers issues in experimental design as well as the procedural skills necessary to translate design into research. Combining challenging material with an accessible presentation, this book also balances coverage of general research principles and specific research topics in developmental psychology. The second edition of Developmental Research Methods has been updated to provide up-to-date discussions of the most currently active and important research areas in developmental psychology. Opening chapters have been reorganized for a more effective grouping and sequence of topics. Discussions of design and measurement are now unified in new chapters devoted to those topics. MARKETS: A valuable book for any professional who wants or needs a greater understanding of the methods for designing, implementing, and writing developmental research projects or proposals.About the Author:
