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.
