Abstract: (Show)
Professors at Harvard University transfer course material from 'Psychology and Social Relations 2750: Methods of Applied Social Research' to a published handbook to provide a tool for those conducting applied research. The authors address issues with research design and validity; discuss the precision of the estimate of effects; highlight the importance of careful analyses of the placement of participants; introduce the assumptions in data analyses; and discuss a variety of complicating issues that investigators can face.
